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

Navy SEAL Dogs promises to teach your children all about how the navy trains these specialist dogs for combat, the breed used and ...expectations of these dog soldiers. They will understand the background of the navy SEAL dogs, the agility of the breed and their ability to locate people, explosives and weapons with their senses of smell and hearing. This educational publication opens up a world of action adventure for kids. The ebook explains everything about helping soldiers on their missions with vivid illustrations and captivating photographs. Read it in black and white or absorbing full color on your kindle. This is a perfect ebook for kids to explore and discover the history of war dogs and the link between Belgian Malinois, working dogs and SEAL dogs. It includes explanations of: what the military has used dogs for in warfare stretching as far back as 600 BC, saving over 10,000 lives in warzones and frontlines worldwide; the close bond between these dogs and their handlers and ?Cairo? the SEAL dog who was part of the team that helped capture the terrorist Osama bin Laden. For instance did you know that there are over 2,500 war dogs in service today with about 700 deployed and serving overseas or that a daring navy seal skydiver and his dog hold the record for the highest man-dog parachute jump at an altitude of 30,100 feet? The facts, pictures and explanations in the publication will keep your child fascinated and entertained, giving fun and enjoyment whilst improving understanding and knowledge. You will understand why most of the western world?s military and law enforcement sectors choose the Malinois, whether it be for sport work, search and rescue, personal protection, detection, police or army work and how SEAL dogs are capable of working in military missions at sea, in the air and on land. You will see why these dogs are trained to detect and engage in ways that soldiers can?t such as explosive detection, reconnaissance, tracking, guarding, engaging the enemy, etc. You will discover what it is like for a soldier to take on, handle and train what will become a best friend. You will also get an understanding of some of the incredible equipment which has been developed to help these dogs perform their work; for instance, I was amazed that special dog goggles have been developed to help dogs recognize that there are people on the other side of a wall. Combat canines are elite warriors, trained fearlessly to venture into our skies by parachute jumping or rappelling down enemy structures. Imagine your heart pounding in your chest while peering out over the edge of a plane 13,000 feet above ground with your best friend harnessed to you. This book will make you understand the close bond which develops between the trainer and dogs and how both are totally reliant on each other for survival. Loss of either party has a tremendous impact on the one remaining and stories of loyalty will bring tears to your eye If you are a little bit like me, your child will be enthralled by the facts, photographs and information contained in the book. They will look at these remarkable dogs in a different light and will want to learn more about them. "We want to be in a situation under maximum pressure, maximum intensity, and maximum danger. When it's shared with others, it provides a bond which is stronger than any tie that can exist." - SEAL Team Six Officer "Anyone can just go in there and kill someone, but you can't get information from a corpse." - SEAL Motto Go ahead and get this Kindle edition by Lionel Paxton. You need download it only once and read it anytime or anywhere on your Kindle device, phones, tablets or PC. Delve into astonishing ebook features like bookmarks, note taking and highlighting while reading all about these amazing adventures of working dogs that love to work and enjoy learning and keeping busy!

<DIV>With game consoles and the Internet, children are playing as much as they always have—but now, they sit still while doing it.... Kids spend as much time watching TV, using computers, and playing video games as they spend in school each week. One in every three kids in America is considered overweight or obese, and the number one concern that parents bring up to pediatricians is keeping kids fit. Half of all children are not physically active enough for the development of a healthy cardiovascular system.<br><BR><I>303 Kid-Approved Exercises and Active Games </I> helps 6-8 year old kids get off their chairs with fun and age-appropriate exercises. Exercise for children must be fun. These exercises have been used for personal training sessions, kids fitness classes, kids fitness camps, birthday parties and in schools; they have all been “Kid-Approved!?.<BR><BR>Kimberley Wechsler, a specialist in Kid?s Fitness, took into account the fundamental attributes of being a child while developing these exercises. Children have specific physiologic differences that make them unique. They grow, mature, and develop skills at different ages, so what may be skill appropriate for one child could be harmful for another child. These exercises reflect the emotional, social, physical level of this age group.<br><BR>At this age, children feel confident with the basic skill of fitness and are now ready to be challenged to more complex moves. They are now at the skill level in which physical challenges like balance, muscle building, hand-eye, hand-foot coordination, increasing challenges for their fine and gross motor skills, and functional training can be more added. They are growing in their intellectual and emotional processes as well, which now allows this age group to follow and understand simple rules of a sport. They are also introduced to the concept of friendly competition and sports fitness.<br><BR>Children also enjoy using their imagination and fantasy, so exercises require the use of their imagination. There are games and fitness challenges that require kids to take an active role in learning new skills, and there are introductions to new sports. Kids still enjoy outside participation so families, friends, educators and counselors can participate in all of the 303 activities.<BR> <br>Kids at this age can?t seem to sit still--their minds are always thinking and their bodies are always moving. Children have short attention spans, so most of the activities can be played within a 15 minute period of time and many choices are offered throughout the book. <I>303 Kid-Approved Exercises and Active Games</I> supports children?s energy and directs it in a positive way; the activities take advantage of a child's natural tendency to be active with unstructured or free play.<br><BR><I>303 Kid-Approved Exercises and Active Games</I> develops intellectual, emotional, and social skills for children, all the while promoting an active and healthy lifestyle.</div> Read More

The characters in the stories are based on what children relate to the most... animals and other children. There are also over 100 colored drawings sketched by children ranging from 7 months to 12 years of age.

<p>This Christmas Cassie is turning ten, old enough to have a sip of wine and take part in the dinner party talk about the univers...e. Cassie imagines the blazing birth of suns and moons and stars, but, when her father speaks of infinity and the folding of space, she decides that some things just won?t fit inside your mind. Shortly after she leaves the holiday table to nap with her cat by the fire, she notices snowflakes melting into her cocoa mug. When her cat disappears into the evergreen forest that has sprouted in the living room, Cassie?s magical journey begins.</p> <p>Searching for her cat, Cassie discovers the worlds-within-worlds that branch from her living room. She enters a frozen forest where she meets crystal sheep who echo her every word and a mad frog king who delights in silly games and rhymes but has developed a rather nasty habit of staring and something much worse. Then Cassie meets tiny Luma, who, unlike the other sheep, doesn?t repeat Cassie?s words. She is, in fact, quite brilliant and instructive in the strange physics of the forest universe. With the help of Luma and Sir Herring, a fatherly wizard of suns and moons and fish, Cassie must solve the mystery of her missing cat and the disappearing light that threatens the crystal creatures in this amazing universe of whispering flowers, talking swans, singing icicles and an indifferent French moon.</p> <p>Evoking the feeling of classic children?s literature, NIGHT LIGHTS is reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland and A Wrinkle in Time. Kids, especially girls nine to twelve years old, will relate to Cassie. If the story is read to younger children, they will enjoy the magical characters, whimsical rhymes and colorful imagery. But the narrative resonates on many levels, with cross-over appeal to older children and adults. Twenty-three dreamy, full color illustrations weave through this winter night?s tale about space and time, sense and nonsense, and the power of imagination.</p> Read More

The authors in this book use the metaphors of invisibility and visibility to explore the social and school lives of many children ...and young people in North America whose complexity, strengths, and vulnerabilities are largely unseen in the society and its schools. These ?invisible children? are socially devalued in the sense that alleviating the difficult conditions of their lives is not a priority?children who are subjected to derogatory stereotypes, who are educationally neglected in schools that respond inadequately if at all to their needs, and who receive relatively little attention from scholars in the field of education or writers in the popular press. <br> <br>The chapter authors, some of the most passionate and insightful scholars in the field of education today, detail oversights and assaults, visible and invisible, but also affirm the capacity of many of these young people to survive, flourish, and often educate others, despite the painful and even desperate circumstances of their lives. By sharing their voices, providing basic information about them, and offering thoughtful analysis of their social situation, this volume combines education and advocacy in an accessible volume responsive to some of the most pressing issues of our time. Although their research methodologies differ, all of the contributors aim to get the facts straight and to set them in a meaningful context. <br> <br><b>New in the Third Edition</b>: Chapters retained from the previous edition have been thoroughly revised and updated, and five totally new chapters have been added on the topics of:<br>*young people pushed into the ?school-to-prison? pipeline; <br>*the ?environmental landscape? of two out-of-school Mexican migrant teens in the rural Midwest;<br>*the perceptions and practices, in and outside schools, that construct African American boys as school failures;<br>*negative portrayals of blackness in the context of understanding the ?collateral damage of continued white privilege?; and <br>*working-class pregnant and parenting teens? efforts to create positive identities for themselves.<br> <br>Of interest to a broad range of researchers, students, and practitioners across the field of education, this compelling book is accessible to all readers. It is particularly appropriate as a text for courses that address the social context of education, cultural and political change, and public policy, including social foundations of education, sociology of education, multicultural education, curriculum studies, and educational policy.

<div>With game consoles and the Internet, children are playing as much as they always have—but now, they sit still while doing it.... Kids spend as much time watching TV, using computers, and playing video games as they spend in school each week. One in every three kids in America is considered overweight or obese, and the number one concern that parents bring up to pediatricians is keeping kids fit. Half of all children are not physically active enough for the development of a healthy cardiovascular system.<br><BR><I>303 Kid-Approved Exercises and Active Games </I> helps 6-8 year old kids get off their chairs with fun and age-appropriate exercises. Exercise for children must be fun. These exercises have been used for personal training sessions, kids fitness classes, kids fitness camps, birthday parties and in schools; they have all been “Kid-Approved!?.<BR><BR>Kimberley Wechsler, a specialist in Kid?s Fitness, took into account the fundamental attributes of being a child while developing these exercises. Children have specific physiologic differences that make them unique. They grow, mature, and develop skills at different ages, so what may be skill appropriate for one child could be harmful for another child. These exercises reflect the emotional, social, physical level of this age group.<br><BR>At this age, children feel confident with the basic skill of fitness and are now ready to be challenged to more complex moves. They are now at the skill level in which physical challenges like balance, muscle building, hand-eye, hand-foot coordination, increasing challenges for their fine and gross motor skills, and functional training can be more added. They are growing in their intellectual and emotional processes as well, which now allows this age group to follow and understand simple rules of a sport. They are also introduced to the concept of friendly competition and sports fitness.<br><BR>Children also enjoy using their imagination and fantasy, so exercises require the use of their imagination. There are games and fitness challenges that require kids to take an active role in learning new skills, and there are introductions to new sports. Kids still enjoy outside participation so families, friends, educators and counselors can participate in all of the 303 activities. <br>Kids at this age can?t seem to sit still--their minds are always thinking and their bodies are always moving. Children have short attention spans, so most of the activities can be played within a 15 minute period of time and many choices are offered throughout the book. <I>303 Kid-Approved Exercises and Active Games</I> supports children?s energy and directs it in a positive way; the activities take advantage of a child's natural tendency to be active with unstructured or free play.<br><BR><I>303 Kid-Approved Exercises and Active Games</I> develops intellectual, emotional, and social skills for children, all the while promoting an active and healthy lifestyle.</div> Read More
