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 IS VOLUME #2 OF A 3-VOLUME SET. Chicken, Turkey and Pork Dishes, Side Dishes, Pasta and Stories. Teresita Shelton was born In... Havana, Cuba in 1940 of Irish and Scottish ancestors. She attended the University of Villanova in Havana and received an Associate Degree in Business. When she was only 17 years of age she was emancipated (something very unusual at that time) by her father Dr. Raul M. Shelton, to allow her to open her own fabric store which she named ?Capricho?. She has worked almost every single day of her life since then. In 1961 she came to Miami as a newlywed to join her father and two sisters, Georgina ?Yoyi? and Susana who had arrived a couple of months earlier fleeing the Communist Revolution in Cuba. Her mother and the rest of the family joined them in exile later. In Miami she started working right away. Her first job was at the Miami laundry Company. She landed the job after answering an ad seeking an Addressograph machine expert, something she claimed she was even though she had never heard the word before. But her passion is cooking. She had been cooking for her family since her mentor in the kitchen, Caridad, the family cook, remained behind in Cuba. That passion is now 53 years old and still growing. Cooking for her siblings and parents first, then for her kids and husband, later for her kids and her friends and now for her grand kids is where she finds the peace and what relieves her from the stress of her business. Teresita has been a Realtor for 35 years in Miami, and is the co-owner along with her daughter, Tere Shelton Bernace, a Yale and Thunderbird graduate, and her well known partner Consuelo Stewart, of Shelton and Stewart Realtors, a highly reputable Real Estate Company on Sunset Drive in South Miami. The real estate company has about 100 sales associates, specializing in high-end residential sales and a Commercial Division, headed by R.E.Broker Julio Diaz, to serve local and International clientele. She is also a dreamer, and while she cooks her mind travels between her years as a youth in Cuba, and her life in Miami. Her family has always been her number one priority. That is why she is memorializing the recipes and stories of her life to leave them as a legacy for her family.word Read More

<p><i>The Keto Cookbook</i> is for those using the ketogenic diet to treat pediatric epilepsy and other neurologic conditions. Eac...h of the 96 recipes for breakfast and brunch, appetizers and snacks, lunch, dinner, and sweets and treats, are compliant with the Keto Calculator and therefore ingredient portions are provided in grams.</p> <p>The ketogenic diet, which is very high in fats and low in carbohydrates, was first developed almost 80 years ago. It makes the body burn fat for energy instead of glucose. When carefully monitored by a medical team familiar with its use, the diet helps two out of three children who are tried on it and may prevent seizures completely in one out of three. It is a strict diet, and takes a strong commitment from the whole family. The ketogenic diet is not a do-it-yourself diet. It is a serious form of treatment that, like other therapies for epilepsy, has some side effects that have to be watched for.</p> <p>The book includes a 16-page color insert illustrating each recipe. Since many children start the Keto Diet before they speak, the pictures of the meal and snack options allow children to choose what they want, helping overcome food refusal due to lack of variety of foods and/or child's loss of control over food options. This book provides parents and children with options that have been tested and are kid- and Registered Dietitian- approved.</p> <p>Features of <i>The Keto Cookbook</i> include:</p> <p><ul><li>96 kid and dietitian tested and approved recipes for the keto diet presented in full color <li>Recipes are coded by symbol to indicate personality type and cooking times <li>Allergy information for the eight most common allergens <li>Practical suggestions to help people "keto-proof" their life, from the kitchen, to the car, to the classroom. <li>Four sample shopping lists and vacation guidelines will help families prepare for the unexpected <li>Sample forms for the Transportation Safety Agency, School/Daycare Center, and Emergency Room/Primary Physician</ul></p> Read More

Packaged candy may be the common reward for trick-or-treating, but plates of Spiderweb Cookies or big bowls of Sticks and Stones Caramel Corn are perfect contributions to school Halloween events, tailgating parties, neighborhood open houses, adult costume parties, and even afternoon play dates. It's difficult to imagine an autumn gathering that wouldn't be even more fun with ghoulish goodies to share.<br><br>These frightful treats are not just for October, though. A birthday party for a nine-year-old or a scary movie sleepover for teenagers practically demands an I'Scream Cake or Spidery Cupcakes. And Chocolate-Chip Pumpkin Bars with Orange Glaze would be welcome at an office coffee break or an afternoon tea party. <br><br>Baking from <I>Ghoulish Goodies</I> is a wonderful way to celebrate the change of seasons and the pleasure of working with kids in the kitchen. Baking cupcakes and making fudge are great activities for autumn afternoons, when the weather turns cool and the kids are underfoot after school. Put them to work stirring, decorating, and scraping pumpkin seeds. These are recipes that parents and kids can have fun making together. And the entire family will enjoy eating a warm Choco-Bat Cookie for dessert.<br><br>Watch the author create Funny Bones featured in the book. </DIV> Read More

<p><strong>Restless Legs Syndrome & how I cured my own by juicing</strong></p> <p> You may know it as: </p> <p> ? Fidgety Legs, ...<br> ? Night Thrashers, <br> ? The Creepy Crawlies Legs, <br> ? Jumpy Legs, <br> ? The Crawlies, <br> ? Edgy Legs, <br> ? Bugs in the bones, <br> ? Night crawls, <br> ? Bugs crawling in my legs at night, <br> ? That Icky Twitchy Leg Thing, <br> ? Wretched limb syndrome, <br> ? Racing legs, <br> ? The Jiggies, <br> ? Night Time Jitterbug, <br> ? Elvis legs, <br> ? Ant Legs, <br> ? Legitis, <br> ? or any other common names of the condition. <br> <br> The cause of Restless Leg Syndrome is not very well understood. It is known that there may be a genetic link, and it is also known that pregnant women are far more likely to suffer from Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS). There are even a few diseases that make someone more prone to get RLS like diabetes or renal failure. However, there are<strong> a large number of cases where RLS affects otherwise healthy human beings.</strong> <br> </p> <p><strong>My RLS Story</strong></p> <p> When my wife was pregnant with our first child, she suffered RLS. For some reason, so did I at the time. It was a horrible sensation that made it near impossible to sleep. I was a man on a mission, researching and delving into medical literature. I found out that there are some common vitamin and mineral deficiencies that may be causing the problem. When you look at our modern diet, you can see why deficiencies occur. OK; I hear what your saying. You eat fruit and vegetables and still have RLS. Well, if I told you that the levels of minerals in our fresh produce have been dropping over the years. In 1930, an average carrot had 20mg zinc. In 1988 that dropped to 10mg. <strong>Current estimates suggests this may be as low as 2mg today</strong>. And it's not just zinc that is being depleted. Essentially, the fruit and vegetables we buy today have less nutrients in them than those our parents ate. <br> <br> The fact that vitamin and mineral deficiencies can cause Restless leg syndrome is actually a good thing for sufferers, because deficiencies can be fixed. In this book, I'll show you the dietary changes I made to cure my own Restless legs syndrome. I did it by juicing certain combinations of fruit and vegetables, and I haven't had RLS since (though I now juice on a daily basis). Why juicing? Simply that we can get larger quantities of nutrients than by eating the food.</p> Read More

This first early reader uses simple text that encourages children to read on their own about tractors truly working hard all year ...long. A beginning-to-read book that is a must for any child who has an interest in tractors. The new tractor demonstrates the real work that a tractor performs on a real farm all through the seasons. The easy, repetitive text showcases the tractor's importance on a farm. Stacey Gabel Inspired by her young son's fascinations with tractors and his equally strong desire to learn, read and inspect anything to do with tractors, Stacey wanted to create a book for a genre that didn't seem to exist. She wanted to give young readers, like her son, something more than just tractor brochures to read. As a result, Stacey has authored a first reader book dealing with tractors and what these great machines accomplish on a farm. As a young girl growing up in Northwest Ohio, Stacey spent countless hours reading books, playing school and babysitting children. These same activities shaped her career as a middle school teacher and now author. Stacey holds a bachelor's degree in elementary education from the Ohio State University and a master's degree in elementary education from Bowling Green State University. She still resides in rural northwest Ohio with her husband and two children. Artist Richard Neuman transforms images of everyday life into universally appealing paintings - each with a touch of whimsy.

He has worked in New York City for the world's largest advertising agency and in Ohio for two Fortune 500 companies. In 1986 he left the corporate world to form his own company focusing on his artwork.
