Barnes & Noble La piramide roja (The Red Pyramid)

Nos quedan solo unas horas, así que escucha con atención. Si estás oyendo esta historia, ya corres peligro. Mi hermana Sadie y yo podríamos ser tu única esperanza. Todo empezó en Londres, la noche en que nuestro padre hizo explotar el Museo... Británico con un extraño conjuro. Fue entonces cuando nos enteramos de que, además de un reconocido arqueólogo, era una especie de mago del Anti­guo Egipto. Rodeado de valiosas antigüedades, empezó a entonar extrañas palabras. Algo debió de salir mal porque la sala quedó reducida a escombros; Set, el dios del caos, apareció de la nada envuelto en llamas y a nuestro padre se lo tragó la tierra? No puedo decirte nada más; el resto deberás descubrirlo tú.

Perfect for expecting parents who want to provide a soothing home for the newest member of their family, The Happiest Baby on the ...Block, the national bestseller by respected pediatrician and child development expert Dr. Harvey Karp, is a revolutionary method for calming a crying infant and promoting healthy sleep from day one. In perhaps the most important parenting book of the decade, Dr. Harvey Karp reveals an extraordinary treasure sought by parents for centuries an automatic ?off-switch? for their baby s crying. No wonder pediatricians across the country are praising him and thousands of Los Angeles parents, from working moms to superstars like Madonna and Pierce Brosnan, have turned to him to learn the secrets for making babies happy. Never again will parents have to stand by helpless and frazzled while their poor baby cries and cries. Dr. Karp has found there IS a remedy for colic. ?I share with parents techniques known only to the most gifted baby soothers throughout history ?and I explain exactly how they work.? In a innovative and thought-provoking reevaluation of early infancy, Dr. Karp blends modern science and ancient wisdom to prove that newborns are not fully ready for the world when they are born. Through his research and experience, he has developed four basic principles that are crucial for understanding babies as well as improving their sleep and soothing their senses: The Missing Fourth Trimester: as odd as it may sound, one of the main reasons babies cry is because they are born three months too soon. The Calming Reflex: the automatic reset switch to stop crying of any baby in the first few months of life. The 5 ?S s?: the simple steps (swaddling, side/stomach position, shushing, swinging and sucking) that trigger the calming reflex. For centuries, parents have tried these methods only to fail because, as with a knee reflex, the calming reflex only works when it is triggered in precisely the right way. Unlike other books that merely list these techniques Dr. Karp teaches parents exactly how to do them, to guide cranky infants to calm and easy babies to serenity in minutes?and help them sleep longer too. The Cuddle Cure: the perfect mix the 5 ?S s? that can soothe even the most colicky of infants. In the book, Dr. Karp also explains: What is colic? Why do most babies get much more upset in the evening? How can a parent calm a baby in mere minutes? Can babies be spoiled? When should a parent of a crying baby call the doctor? How can a parent get their baby to sleep a few hours longer? Even the most loving moms and dads sometimes feel pushed to the breaking point by their infant s persistent cries. Coming to the rescue, however, Dr. Karp places in the hands of parents, grandparents, and all childcare givers the tools they need to be able to calm their babies almost as easily as?turning off a light.
