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

Then?the world.<BR> <BR>Compiled from his baby book, family photos, and report cards, <I>Santa from Cincinnati </I>provides a full-spectrum view of the boy who grew to be the man who grew to be Santa.

Word Roots and affixes, Book 2, is for students in grades 6 and 8. It is designed for kids to learn and apply the way root words, ...prefixes, and suffixes are used to create a living language. The goal is to ignite an interest in and fascination about words for students so they may decode unfamiliar words as they read and create new ones as they make language their own! Why should a teacher and his or her students spend time studying affixes (prefixes and suffixes) and roots of words? It makes perfect sense when one considers that a great number of words in the common English vocabulary are combinations of various roots and prefixes and/or suffixes. Rather than having to go to a dictionary each time an unfamiliar word is encountered, a student who has learned these three basic components can arrive at a logical meaning on his or her own. Traditionally, the only way used to improve vocabulary is to locate unfamiliar words as they are encountered in some form of dictionary and then to commit the new words to memory. This method is cumbersome, discouraging and time consuming at least. Research indicates that this method is not as effective in improving vocabulary strength as does learning affixes and roots and the many ways they can and do work in combinations to build words. The purpose and intent of teaching word parts and the ways words are put together is to give students another option for decoding and understanding unfamiliar words and for building new ones. By examining how and why prefixes and suffixes affect simple word roots and already complex words, students can more readily expand their vocabulary. All affixes or roots need not be learned at once; however, by learning to analyze, use and manipulate a number of basic components, students will develop a more efficient and effective set of tools to use when meeting unfamiliar words or inventing their own. This method and strategy will help to reduce the mass of vocabulary that students must learn as single, seemingly isolated words. Students will be able to analyze new words by using this knowledge and the context in which the word appears. How satisfying it will be for the student each time he or she can figure out the meaning of a word using these new skills! It is the puzzle solved. Read More
