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

Going through the boiler room, they?re amazed to find to a secret backyard with a garden, a porch, and a statue of a cat. And they?re even more amazed when that cat starts to talk. . . . Welcome to the world of Mrs. Noodlekugel, where felines converse and serve cookies and tea, vision-impaired mice join the party (but may put crumbs up their noses), and children in search of funny adventures are drawn by the warm smell of gingerbread and the promise of magical surprises.

Richard and Rosco is a story about two friends who spend the day chasing rainbows. "Rumble Rumble Rappity Flap, Oh my goodness what was that?" Throughout the book, Richard and Rosco uses audio bombardment and predictable text to encourage interaction ---which provides opportunity to model correct speech. By audio bombardment and predictable text, a subconscious awareness is created that may help avoid bad speech habits later of the phonic sound 'r'. By highlighting the letter 'r' in the written word, attention is called to where the 'r' sound is in the word. This helps correct speech problems of the 'r' sound not only at the beginning of a word, but in the middle and at the end as well. At the end of the story of Richard and Rosco there are several activity pages to encourage further awareness of the 'r' sound in spelling and reading. Speech therapists, parents and teachers all agree, Richard and Rosco is a delightful and 'must have' addition to any home or professional library. Read More

<i>Wish you could find more children?s books written in French?</i> <br> <i>On the lookout for French books for kids who enjoy rea...ding early chapter books on their own? <br> Then try...</i> <br> <h1>Pyjamazoo</h1> Evelyn only wants one thing: To get through 6th grade at her new school without everyone finding out that her family is crazy?and there?s a zoo in their basement. When the most popular girl in school insists that Evelyn have a sleepover, it looks like Evelyn?s dream of being normal is about to be smashed. Evelyn tries to get her new friend, Florence, to help?but Florence?s first visit to Evelyn?s home ends badly, thanks to a surprise encounter with frozen mice. Then a missing snake and bossy parrot only make things worse. If Evelyn can?t get out of this sleepover, the whole school will find out her family is not normal. This wacky tale is packed with fun, feathers and friendship?and a sleepover that no one will ever forget. <br> <br> En Francais! Évelyne a un seul but en tête : terminer la classe de sixième de sa nouvelle école avant que tout le monde découvre que sa famille est bizarre et qu?il y a un zoo dans leur sous-sol. Quand la fille la plus populaire de l?école insiste pour qu?Évelyne invite un groupe d?élèves à passer la nuit chez elle, il semble que le rêve d?Évelyne d?être normale soit en passe de n?être qu?un rêve après tout. Évelyne demande à sa nouvelle amie Florence de l?aider, mais la première visite de Florence chez Evelyne se termine mal, d?abord à cause d?une rencontre avec des souris congelées, ensuite parce que la découverte d?un serpent égaré et les méfaits d?un perroquet chapardeur n?ont fait qu?aggraver la situation. Si Évelyne n?arrive pas à annuler cette soirée pyjama, l?école entière découvrira que sa famille n?est pas normale. Cette histoire dingue est celle d?une famille « différente » dans laquelle parents, enfants et animaux partagent une série d?aventures inénarrables qui se terminent par une soirée pyjama inoubliable. <br> <br> <h3><b>A Personal Note From The Author:</b></h3><br> The idea for this novel came from a real-life wild bird care center that I worked in for several years. It was run by a kind-hearted family who took in any bird (and animal) that people found on the streets?and, wow, they found a lot! Like Evelyn?s family, we cared for a one-legged goose, a hawk with a broken wing, sparrows, owls, baby pigeons, snakes, abandoned kittens and more. During the two years that I worked there, I lost dozens of cups of coffee because their caffeine-addicted parrot would perch on my mug as soon as my head was turned, and then would NOT let me have it back until he?d drunk it all or tipped it over. Like Léonie, I lost a pretty gold earring when their parrot decided it was a tick and chewed it off before I could stop him. I spent many lunches trying to keep my food away from their always-hungry Great Dane and, like Evelyn, I finally got used to opening up the big basement freezer and seeing bags of dead mice beside the ice cream! The one thing I never quite got used to? Being chased out of their bathroom every day by a very annoyed one-legged goose who was CONVINCED that the tub was his (despite the fact that it was the only bathroom in the house, so we all had to use it). Taking care of injured birds is a ton of work, but it was the most fun job I?ve ever had, and I learned more about wildlife than I could have ever imagined. I had a blast writing this story and reliving all of those wonderful memories, and I?m glad I can now share them with kids.??<i><b>If you?d love to find more fun French kids books?or childrens French chapter books are on your wish list?then PYJAMAZOO is for you!</b></i> <br> <h1>Want to read more?

Any parent knows that getting a child to eat a healthy diet can be a challenge, and sometimes a young one might decide meat is no ...longer on his personal menu. If this happens, don't panic. A simple understanding that meat-free children can get their daily recommended intake of protein on a vegetarian diet is quite easily grasped and fun to implement in a household. Keep in mind that children have very specific nutritional needs. They require high levels of protein, calcium, iron and dietary fat for healthy development. You may want to consult with your pediatrician to be sure that you're meeting all your child's nutritional needs. He might recommend a nutritional supplement or have other useful suggestions on healthy vegetarian eating for kids. Vegetarian meals for kids can be healthy, nutritious, delicious, and quick and easy to prepare. According to a 2009 American Dietetic Association position paper posted on the VRG website, children who are raised on vegetarian diets tend to establish lifelong healthy eating patterns. Compared with nonvegetarian kids, vegetarian kids tend to be leaner; have lower serum cholesterol levels; take in less cholesterol, saturated fats and total fat; and have a higher intake of fruits, vegetables, and fiber.
