Innovative Kids

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

It all started on the day that my mum came home from my school parents evening. Steam was swiftly coming out of her ears, like a ...pressure cooker ready to explode. I really thought that at any minute she would ?take off?. I began reciting in my head ten, nine, eight, seven, six...... I never did reach blast off before she began ranting at me again. It turns out that my dull and boring History teacher, Mr Butler had slated me, saying that I always messed around in his class. Well I did to be honest I hated history. It was one of my worst subjects. I could not understand why we needed to learn about the past. The future was what was important, that was what we were always told. Grownups always seemed to contradict themselves and it did my head in. No wonder we kids were almost always confused! The worst thing was that Mr Butler told my mum about the assignment I was supposed to be working on. It was: ?A day in the life of a person living through world war two? We were all then to present our work to the class after Christmas. I hadn?t started mine and it was November. In fact I was going to make some excuse like my writing arm was playing up or my computer had blown up and left us all in shock so I was unable to do any homework! Now I would have Mum on my back too! ?You really need to take an interest in history? my mum had said, banging the dinner pots into the cupboard after they had been left for two hours, drying on the draining board. I don?t know if her temper was down to the fact that I had not dried the dinner pots or the poor report from this mind-numbing teacher. Maybe it was a bit of both. We were currently doing all about world war two, which started in 1939 and ended in 1945. It was now 2013. Why would I want to know about a war that happened over fifty years ago? It was before I was even born, before my mum and dad were born and even before my Grandparents were born. How was that going to help me in my future? Anyway, when mum and I start arguing we really fire up. We are both quite stubborn and opinionated so world war two, three and four happen in our house quite regularly. We never seem to be able to meet a compromise. This time was no different. History was totally tiresome. It was so tedious that I nearly always fell asleep in every lesson. If I didn?t mess about I would doze off. Which would Mr Butler prefer for goodness sake? ?How will knowing about world war two benefit me in getting a job?? I had argued back, forgetting my nanny?s frequent words of wisdom. ?Don?t argue with your mum, Megan. It takes more energy to argue than it does to say yes and mum?s always know best and tell you for your own good.? She had said this to me many times. She was right of course but I loved winding mum up so for me it took no energy whatsoever! I didn?t know how learning about some old war would be for my own good though. Well not until I sat in Grandpa?s chair that is. Read More

<div>Some 111 million years ago, deep in the heart of Texas, a herd of twenty-ton dinosaurs sauntered across a wet mud flat. Their... footprints eventually became frozen in stone, leaving a sign of one fleeting moment of a particular day in the lives of these magnificent creatures.<br><br>Today, after mountains of time have passed, the story of dinosaurs in what is now Texas is being reconstructed, footprint by footprint, bone by bone. <i>Lone Star Dinosaurs</i> tells that story, along with the exciting tale of the discoveries that have opened a peephole into the past. Behind each fossil find, there is not just a dinosaur but a person-- sometimes a child--whose spark of curiosity lights the picture of prehistory. This is a thrilling story, engagingly written and beautifully illustrated, through which young and old alike can enter the world of the dinosaurs and the world of the dinosaur hunters.<br><br>Dinosaurs are a Texas legacy from worlds long past. <i>Pleurocoelus</i><i>, </i><i>Alamosaurus</i><i>, </i><i>Acrocanthosaurus</i><i>, </i><i>Chasmosaurus</i><i>, Tyrannosaurus,</i> and <i>Tenontosaurus</i> are among the representatives Texas boasts of every basic group of dinosaurs--a remarkable diversity that samples nearly the entire range of dinosaurian development over an immense expanse of time. In fact, the three dinosaur-bearing areas within the state--the Panhandle, Central Texas, and Big Bend--yield treasures of vastly different ages, from the beginning of the Mesozoic Era more than 200 million years ago to the time of the big extinction some 66 million years ago. These dinosaurs lived in such different arrangements of the continents and oceans that they may as well have lived in different worlds. Their stories offer a compelling picture of the history of life on our planet.</div> 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.

Lindsay Scott hit the big time at age five, when she became the star of the television show "Just Me and the Kids." It seemed like... she was set for life--until she had a nervous breakdown when she was eleven, because Lindsay had suddenly developed a very dangerous sense of ESP--the ability to hear what anyone was thinking about here, at any time, anywhere in the world. Lindsay's father whisked her away to her long-gone mother's house in small town Springdale, and Lindsay was amazed to discover that within the four walls of the house, she can't hear anything out of the ordinary. And so Lindsay has stayed hidden in the house, safe from other people's thoughts, doing her best to stay out of sight and let the world forget her. <BR><BR>When the tabloids print a "where are they now" story about her, claiming that Lindsay's maniacal father has kept her imprisoned in her house for the past five years, a couple of well-meaning teens attempt to "rescue" Lindsay. For the first time in five years, Lindsay is outside the protective quiet of her house. And that's when she hears the one voice she never expected to hear: her mother's. <BR><BR>When she discovers that perhaps her mother didn't leave voluntarily, she has a choice to make: will she risk everything to find the truth about her past--and the source of her ability?

Sir James Matthew Barrie, (1860 ? 19 June 1937) was a Scottish author and dramatist, best remembered today as the creator of Peter... Pan. The child of a family of small-town weavers, he was educated in Scotland. He moved to London, where he developed a career as a novelist and playwright. There he met the Llewelyn Davies boys who inspired him in writing about a baby boy who has magical adventures in Kensington Gardens (included in The Little White Bird), then to write Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up, a "fairy play" about this ageless boy and an ordinary girl named Wendy who have adventures in the fantasy setting of Neverland. This play quickly overshadowed his previous work and although he continued to write successfully, it became his best-known work, credited with popularising the name Wendy, which was very uncommon previously. Barrie unofficially adopted the Davies boys following the deaths of their parents.
