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

We often think that people from a thousand years ago were living in the Dark Ages. But from the 7th century onward in Muslim civil...ization there were amazing advances and inventions that still influence our everyday lives. People living in the Muslim world saw what the Egyptians, Chinese, Indians, Greek, and Romans had discovered and spent the next one thousand years adding new developments and ideas. Inventors created marvels like the elephant water clock, explorers drew detailed maps of the world, women made scientific breakthroughs and founded universities, architects built huge domes larger than anywhere else on earth, astronomers mapped the stars and so much more! This book takes the wining formula of facts, photos, and fun, and applies it to this companion book to the 1001 Inventions exhibit from the Foundation for Science, Technology, and Civilization.

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. His meticulously detailed pieces of artwork range from tractors to bulldozers; barns to baskets;lighthouses to schoolhouses. Richard holds a bachelors degree in advertising design and a master's degree in art graphics with a minor in business. His corporate career was based in the publishing and advertising industry. 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. His success is attributed to the combination of his artistic talent with a broad background in product development, marketing and a high utilization of technology. Richard uses traditional media combined with digital technology to provide artwork ready for use in printing, web publishing and product manufacturing. The popularity of his work is worldwide with private patrons in dozens of countries. Disney, Hallmark and Cracker Barrel have marketed his art. Clients include General Electric, KOA, Longaberger Basket Company, HealthNet, Biogen Idec, John Deere Company and Creative Memories. Images from his collection of over 400 images have been licensed to a variety of manufacturers and businesses. Read More
