It can take all of your powers of persuasion to get your little prince to take his rightful throne. Framing potty-training as a of accomplishment and independence is the best way to get it done, and the Prince of the Potty book by Innovative Kids does a great job teaching kids how to use the potty in a way that's both playful and fun. The Prince of the Potty book uses simple language that isn't too babyish to tell the story of a proud little prince and his newly-acquired bathroom habits. We especially appreciated how the little boy in the book is depicted as the prime mover of his own story - he decides to take on the challenge of the potty, with the help of his royal parents. Writer Nora Gaydos is an elementary school teacher with tremendous expertise in pre-reading skills, so this book is also tailored to lead your child towards learning to read. And illustrator Akemi Gutierrez is a seasoned illustrator and animator, whose drawings are absolutely adorable and kid-friendly. Read More

This cookbook was created out of my own interest and desire to develop tasty, healthy easy to prepare meals and snacks that accomm...odate all of my sensitivities and allergies. Which means they must be; gluten free, wheat free, dairy free, sugar free, caffeine free, preservative, additive and chemical free.It is overwhelming to be told your regular eating habits have to be altered and many people simply don?t have a lot of time to be creative in the kitchen. I found there were not many recipes available to help me with all of the sensitivities I had developed and realized there must be other people like me trying to come up with tasty healthy food to enjoy. I have created several quick and simple recipes that provide very healthy and flavourful dishes. There is a wide variety from snacks to full meals and these dishes are sure to please your family and even impress your friends without being difficult or too costly. Some ingredients may be new and sound foreign but they are surprisingly easy to find and I have provided tips on many recipes that assist with preparation as well as where to locate many of these items.

When it comes to fairness, every kid knows that a parent can't break a candy bar perfectly in half, for sharing. We grown-ups also... know what it's like not being treated fairly, and we know that much unfairness springs from such things as greed, or hatred, or anger, or prejudice, or misunderstanding, or even from the ways of Nature. But using these "big words" to explain unfairness to children will probably not work. And so, in this book, author Linus Mundy, offers words and examples that children will understand and relate to. Our children are ready to understand more about this big, wide world we live in. And they are ready to make it better for everyone, by making it more just, more fair. Softcover; 32 pages; 8" x 8".<BR><BR>Abbey Press continues to produce inspirational and religious gifts of faith, family and friendship. These included home décor, crosses, collectibles, rosaries, photo frames, framed prints, plaques and more! Read More

<p><i>From the dough I was made, in the oven I was baked, on the window I was bored, down the trail I jumped and rolled, clever K...olobok I'm called.</i></p> <p> <i>Kolobok</i> is a traditional Russian folk tale beloved by kids and adults alike. The story of a restless little bun who comes to life and escapes from his makers, it holds parallels with similar tales found in the folklore of every nation in the world. Yet despite this universal storyline, the Russian version offers its own distinctive cultural flavor. Now, you and your child can both experience the beauty of Russia's rich linguistic legacy without leaving your 21st century home. In this innovative edition, <i>Kolobok</i> has been carefully translated into modern Russian, English, Spanish and Chinese - especially for the enjoyment of children ages 2-6, families speaking more than one language, and foreign language learners of all ages!</p> <p> The traditions of folk storytelling are timeless, borderless, and universal. <i>Kolobok</i> is only one of a million precious stones that adorn the magnificent crown of our common folk literary heritage. The story you hold in your hands is a piece of culture that belongs in every family's home.</p> <p> In retelling the age-old story of <i>Kolobok</i>, careful consideration was placed on accurately transcribing linguistic and cultural intricacies within the story, reflecting important innate differences between the languages chosen. Native speakers of each language wrote and proofread the translations; focus groups of parents and children evaluated and approved of the book's unique format. Everyone involved in the project truly enjoyed bringing <i>Kolobok</i> to life.</p> <p> Illustrations in the book are digital and were created using image processing software. The photographs were digitally captured or carefully selected from the finest digital archives of distinguished photographers, then skillfully fused with digital drawings. This combination immerses young readers in a magical world of folk storytelling, where borders between reality and fiction are blurred. </p> <p><i>Kolobok</i> is printed in English but includes matching captions printed in other languages on re-sealable stickers (at the back of the book). The languages included in this multilingual edition are Russian, Spanish and Chinese. To switch or add a language, simply put the numbered stickers on top of the original printed text. Also, included with this book is a CD containing a narration of the story in each of the four languages. And finally, we have provided a set of numbered blank stickers. We support and encourage families to make use of this set; if you don't find your native language in this edition, you have the option of writing your own translation on the blank stickers. This book is multilingual, and we want you to treat it as such.</p> Read More

Cancer, with a fifty percent chance of being dead in 15 to 36 months.<br><br>That was the news that I got in October of 2006, and ...I was only 53 years old. Over just a few days, I went from speed-of-light active to zero. My career as a pediatrician ended three days after I realized I was ill. <br><br>After the initial shock of hearing the diagnosis and likelihood of survival, my thoughts all turned to my family. Was everything organized enough for my wife to take over my family jobs? Would we have any money now, since I had no job? Would I be alive to see my youngest daughter graduate from college? What would my oldest daughter do in New York City, where she was just beginning her first job after college? Had I told everybody all the things I had always meant to tell them? Would I be able to get all my "lists" done before I died?<br><br>I survived two different regimens of chemotherapy, and attended the graduation one week after the final treatment. My organizational skills were legend, and my wife was set to take over. Money would be okay. My lists were completed. My New York daughter quit her job and moved back, into a teaching job that had just opened. I had an autologous stem-cell bone marrow transplant, my only chance of survival, in August of 2007. <br><br>About a month after my transplant, my daughters came to babysit for me. <br><br>I could not be left alone, since I could not care for myself. While they were there, I realized that, although I had told them all the things I had meant to say, they would probably forget all the stories I had told them when they were young.<br><br> "Daddy, tell me a story about when you were little," kept repeating in my head. It was what they said to me many evenings at bedtime, so that I would tell them the things I did as a child. Back when parents just sent us out to play, without knowing what we were doing or where we were. I played in dangerous places and did dangerous and rotten things. My parents probably thought I would grow up to be some sort of terrible criminal. My daughters were fascinated.<br><br>So, in October of 2007, I decided to write down all of my bedtime stories, hopefully getting the job done before I died. It is now April of 2009, and I am not dead. I am cancer-free, at least by any testing that looks for disease recurrence. I finally have finished writing all of the stories that I can remember - all 224 of them. I am writing this book only for two people, my daughters, so I only need two copies. If anybody else finds enjoyment, humor, or astonishment in my stories, it will make me smile. A rotten kid grew up to be a pediatrician. Read More

This is a revised and expanded version of the author's first book, "Veggie Creations for Kellan", with seventy more taste tested r...ecipes that toddlers, kids and families will love. This version also includes the author's experience, insight, and tips, about getting young children to try new foods. The theme of labeling recipes with kid-friendly names designed to integrate experience, such as learning shapes and colors, with food, is continued from the first book. Many of the new recipes were developed with the help of the author's increasingly verbal and skilled son, Kellan himself. The new creations offer almost just as many sweet as there are savory delights. The bottom line is that kids prefer sweet. The appeal for such recipes as Carrot Cake Pops and Triangle Cookies is that they combine veggies with natural sweeteners, creating a win-win for parents and children alike. One hundred thirty-five total tried and true recipes. Several photos display the look of the final product with mouth watering appeal. As in the original book, these pages also feature pictures of Kellan devouring his favorites-proof that the recipes work on the pickiest of eaters! Read More

Phenylketonuria (pronounced fee-nill-key-toe-NURR-ee-uh) or PKU is a rare, inherited metabolic disorder. Each year, approximately ...1 in 14,000 newborn babies are diagnosed with PKU. If you have PKU, your body cannot break down, or metabolize, the essential amino acid, phenylalanine (Phe). Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. The primary treatment for PKU is a special metabolic formula and the restriction of foods high in Phe (protein), such as meats, cheeses, milk, bread and pasta. Life-long dietary compliance is a critical component for proper growth and development in children and quality of life in adults. We hope Penny The Penguin can help your child on this "diet for life" journey. Read More

The roots of children?s literature are commonly known to lie in adaptation. The texts most frequently adapted for a child audience... are either canonised literary works for adults or children?s books which have acquired a high status of their own. In both cases, the stories are adapted to fit the needs of new readers in other contexts. This volume frames adaptation in children?s literature against a broader socio-cultural background, focussing on the ideological implications of the process. Emphasising both diversity and evolution, it deals with oppositional forces and recent trends informing adaptation. At its core are issues of transmediality and new reader roles, adaptations' orientation towards the ideology associated with the pre-text, as well as canonisation of the pre-texts and of the adaptations themselves. The volume is characterised by a broad international and diachronic spread, with topics ranging from traditional Western fairy tale adaptations to retellings of South African oral stories and Persian myths. The evolution discernible in the cases presented neatly illustrates how the process of adaptation allows canonical texts to develop into never-ending stories. Read More
