Here is a little quote to get things started and hopefully put a smile on your face: Do you like green eggs and ham? I do not like... them, Sam-I-am. I do not like green eggs and ham! Here is a little info about Green Eggs and Ham that you may or not know: Green Eggs and Ham is a best-selling and critically acclaimed book by Dr. Seuss (a pen-name of Theodor Seuss Geisel), first published on August 12, 1960. As of 2001, according to Publishers Weekly, it was the fourth best-selling English-language children's book of all time. The story has appeared in several animated videos starting with 1973's Dr. Seuss on the Loose: The Sneetches, The Zax, Green Eggs and Ham starring Paul Winchell as the voice of both Sam I Am and the unnamed recipient of his constant pestering. A character known as 'Sam I Am' pesters Sam's friend to taste green eggs and ham. The unnamed character declines, claiming to dislike green eggs and ham. However, the persistent Sam I Am will not cease following Sam's friend around and trying to encourage him to try the green eggs and ham, asking him if he will sample the dish if he does it in various locations (boat, rain, train, dark, tree, car, box, house, here or there, anywhere) and with an assortment of dining partners (goat, fox, mouse). At the end, Sam's friend gives in to Sam I Am's pestering and takes a bite of green eggs and ham, which he finds he does indeed like. Pass the green eggs, please. Read More

I counted them. I have ___ up top. I have ___ downstairs. It's a simple idea, but with a surprising amount of educational value -- getting children to name their home country, to recognize and draw in the color of their own eyes, learn their telephone number and address, to name favorite clothes, foods, and colors, and more. - Finally, there's a two-page spread where each owner of the book can write his or her own story. - Illustrator Roy McKie's style is halfway between the P.D.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER ?As sweet and funny and sad and true and heartfelt a memoir as one could find.? from the foreword by Au...gusten Burroughs Ever since he was young, John Robison longed to connect with other people, but by the time he was a teenager, his odd habits an inclination to blurt out non sequiturs, avoid eye contact, dismantle radios, and dig five-foot holes (and stick his younger brother, Augusten Burroughs, in them) had earned him the label ?social deviant.? It was not until he was forty that he was diagnosed with a form of autism called Asperger s syndrome. That understanding transformed the way he saw himself and the world. A born storyteller, Robison has written a moving, darkly funny memoir about a life that has taken him from developing exploding guitars for KISS to building a family of his own. It s a strange, sly, indelible account sometimes alien yet always deeply human.

The Gift of an Ordinary Day is an intimate memoir of a family in transition-boys becoming teenagers, careers ending and new ones o...pening up, an attempt to find a deeper sense of place, and a slower pace, in a small New England town. It is a story of mid-life longings and discoveries, of lessons learned in the search for home and a new sense of purpose, and the bittersweet intensity of life with teenagers holding on, letting go.

A cutting-edge account of the latest science of autism, from the best-selling author and advocate When Temple Grandin was born in ...1947, autism had only just been named. Today it is more prevalent than ever, with one in 88 children diagnosed on the spectrum. And our thinking about it has undergone a transformation in her lifetime: Autism studies have moved from the realm of psychology to neurology and genetics, and there is far more hope today than ever before thanks to groundbreaking new research into causes and treatments. Now Temple Grandin reports from the forefront of autism science, bringing her singular perspective to a thrilling journey into the heart of the autism revolution. Weaving her own experience with remarkable new discoveries, Grandin introduces the neuroimaging advances and genetic research that link brain science to behavior, even sharing her own brain scan to show us which anomalies might explain common symptoms. We meet the scientists and self-advocates who are exploring innovative theories of what causes autism and how we can diagnose and best treat it. Grandin also highlights long-ignored sensory problems and the transformative effects we can have by treating autism symptom by symptom, rather than with an umbrella diagnosis. Most exciting, she argues that raising and educating kids on the spectrum isn t just a matter of focusing on their weaknesses; in the science that reveals their long-overlooked strengths she shows us new ways to foster their unique contributions. From the ?aspies? in Silicon Valley to the five-year-old without language, Grandin understands the true meaning of the word spectrum. The Autistic Brain is essential reading from the most respected and beloved voices in the field. Read More

What had happened to my beautiful boy? To our family? What did I do wrong? Those are the wrenching questions that haunted every mo...ment of David Sheff s journey through his son Nic s addiction to drugs and tentative steps toward recovery. Before Nic Sheff became addicted to crystal meth, he was a charming boy, joyous and funny, a varsity athlete and honor student adored by his two younger siblings. After meth, he was a trembling wraith who lied, stole, and lived on the streets. David Sheff traces the first subtle warning signs: the denial, the 3 A.M. phone calls (is it Nic? the police? the hospital?), the rehabs. His preoccupation with Nic became an addiction in itself, and the obsessive worry and stress took a tremendous toll. But as a journalist, he instinctively researched every avenue of treatment that might save his son and refused to give up on Nic. Beautiful Boy is a fiercely candid memoir that brings immediacy to the emotional rollercoaster of loving a child who seems beyond help.

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.

Siegel, neuropsychiatrist and author of the bestselling Mindsight, and parenting expert Tina Payne Bryson offer a revolutionary approach to child rearing with twelve key strategies that foster healthy brain development, leading to calmer, happier children.
