CAL – Item # B-10 – Alateen-a day at a time

Leave a comment

B-10WHAT I LEARNED: 1. As of this year, this book has been around for 30 years!  It’s Alateen’s first daily reader & is very different than Living Today in Alateen (B-26).  It seems it is for older teens because there are no pictures, drawings, or even quotes from other books.  It’s very straightforward & whereas the other daily reader seemed to have a “learning” theme, this one is all about the program.  In fact, the word “program” is mentioned on 213 pages – which is almost 60% of the book!

2. Here are some keywords from its index that you won’t find in any of the other daily readers: approval seeking, buying love, cliques, dreams, ego, overreacting, pity, punishing the nonalcoholic, silent treatment, taking sides, using people, & withdrawing.

3. This is the only daily reader to feature a “Notes” section of blank pages at the back.  (I wish all the others had this!  I feel like I’ll need to buy new daily readers soon because I’m running out of room for all my notes!)

**BONUS: Between all 5 daily readers, which page is probably read the least?  (Hint: it’s a date that usually occurs every 4 years  Does your daily reader have a Feb 29th?)
