Ask Amy: Friend’s alcoholism is out of control

Amy Dickinson, Tribune Content Agency on

There is nothing wrong with a little disconnect between the generations, but I hope you won’t let this difference of opinion grow into anything more than that.

Dear Amy: Thank you for your “Book on Every Bed” column.

I love this idea.

I recently returned to the workforce, working with low-income preschoolers.

Each day before rest time I read the same very sweet book.

For the holidays, I gave each of my students their own copy.

I hope I have helped instill the love of reading and a good book.


– Happy With my Little Ones

Dear Happy: Your preschoolers will treasure this book. Thank you for encouraging literacy.
