It can take all of your powers of persuasion to get your little prince to take his rightful throne. Framing potty-training as a ti...me 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

Every day, loving parents and caregivers are taken from their families for the simple crime of possessing, selling, or growing a s...afe, non-toxic plant. The children who love them often face serious social stigma, both from their peers and adults who judge them and their loved ones harshly. These issues can lead to low self-esteem, real damage to their most important relationship, and possibly to the child internalizing the judgements of others (believing they must be bad if their loved one is bad) and thus to acting out. Although social attitudes about cannabis are changing rapidly, the laws are much slower to be reformed, leaving thousands of otherwise law-abiding citizens incarcerated and labeled as criminals, despite the fact that they never hurt anyone. Stinky Steve is here to help parents, guardians, and other grown-ups talk to kids about why someone they love is in prison for cannabis. By helping the children understand the injustice of cannabis prohibition, Stinky Steve wants to help them feel better about their situation and their loved one's incarceration so that they can begin to heal!

  <div>Today there is no such thing as a general education classroom - virtually every class contains learners with special needs.... Accommodating these children with stop-gap measures takes great effort and often ends with disappointing results. <i>The Inclusion Classroom Problem Solver</i> is a practical guide that helps you build a permanent, inclusive classroom structure that automatically helps diverse learners without resorting to short-term fixes - even if you have no training with special needs students.</div> <div> </div> <div><i>The Inclusion Classroom Problem Solver </i>begins with the simple premise that if children don't learn the way we teach, we must learn to teach the way they learn. Constance McGrath explains how to set up a classroom environment that supports special-needs students as well as their peers, prevents behavioral problems, and improves learning for everyone. Based on observations of more than a dozen teachers across multiple districts, <i>The Inclusion Classroom Problem Solver </i>provides proven ways to create a classroom that replaces frustrating temporary accommodations with an inclusive, joyous environment designed to work for every student. From the smallest tasks - such as explaining assignments, arranging children's seating, and establishing classroom transitions - to big ideas, McGrath shares:</div> <ul type="disc"> <li>organizational principles and lesson plans that work together to meet student needs </li> <li>curricular supports that are efficient, effective, and give students opportunities to succeed and be appropriately challenged</li> <li>assessment techniques, including whole-class and self-assessments, as well as guidelines on creating fair testing for all students</li> <li>classroom routines that promote inclusion, a positive culture, and friendships among all students</li> <li>experience-honed advice on working through behavioral issues, including interpreting what signal a child may be sending through undesirable behavior</li> <li>ideas for building and sustaining a strong special-education team</li> <li>methods for communicating effectively with parents.</li> </ul> <div> </div> <div>In addition, McGrath provides a summary of the most common disabilities teachers work with. This invaluable resource provides a working definition of each condition, typical symptoms that teachers and parents might see, likely parent concerns and expectations, assignments that work well with the disability, and numerous ideas for supporting students at both the individual and whole-class levels.</div> <div> </div> <div>Inclusion is a fact of life, but you don't have to struggle with it. Read <i>The Inclusion Classroom Problem Solver</i> and change your perspective. You'll not only find out how to provide diverse learners with what they need by making accommodations a part of your classroom structure, but also discover a teaching life that's less stressful and more satisfying.</div> Read More

Alain Ducasse presents parents with the keys to giving young children healthy food. Alain Ducasse is one of France's best-known ch...efs and well known for his devotion to healthful eating, as demonstrated in his critically acclaimed and best-selling book <i>Alain Ducasse Nature.</i> Now the multi-Michelin-starred chef goes back to basics and rediscovers the pleasures of preparing simple, locally sourced, natural food for children, from ages 6 months to 3 years. The simple yet delicious dishes included here highlight a range of flavor combinations in which vegetables, fruits, and grains take pride of place, while animal protein is used sparingly.

Charts, sidebars, and asides containing useful snippets of Ducasse's experience and nutritionist Paule Neyrat's advice are peppered throughout the charmingly illustrated recipes, making for a book that is both useful and beautiful for every parent wishing to start their children out with good eating habits.
