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

THIS IS VOLUME #2 OF A 3-VOLUME SET. Chicken, Turkey and Pork Dishes, Side Dishes, Pasta and Stories. Teresita Shelton was born In... Havana, Cuba in 1940 of Irish and Scottish ancestors. She attended the University of Villanova in Havana and received an Associate Degree in Business. When she was only 17 years of age she was emancipated (something very unusual at that time) by her father Dr. Raul M. Shelton, to allow her to open her own fabric store which she named ?Capricho?. She has worked almost every single day of her life since then. In 1961 she came to Miami as a newlywed to join her father and two sisters, Georgina ?Yoyi? and Susana who had arrived a couple of months earlier fleeing the Communist Revolution in Cuba. Her mother and the rest of the family joined them in exile later. In Miami she started working right away. Her first job was at the Miami laundry Company. She landed the job after answering an ad seeking an Addressograph machine expert, something she claimed she was even though she had never heard the word before. But her passion is cooking. She had been cooking for her family since her mentor in the kitchen, Caridad, the family cook, remained behind in Cuba. That passion is now 53 years old and still growing. Cooking for her siblings and parents first, then for her kids and husband, later for her kids and her friends and now for her grand kids is where she finds the peace and what relieves her from the stress of her business. Teresita has been a Realtor for 35 years in Miami, and is the co-owner along with her daughter, Tere Shelton Bernace, a Yale and Thunderbird graduate, and her well known partner Consuelo Stewart, of Shelton and Stewart Realtors, a highly reputable Real Estate Company on Sunset Drive in South Miami.

She is also a dreamer, and while she cooks her mind travels between her years as a youth in Cuba, and her life in Miami. Her family has always been her number one priority.

<p><i>The Keto Cookbook</i> is for those using the ketogenic diet to treat pediatric epilepsy and other neurologic conditions. Eac...h of the 96 recipes for breakfast and brunch, appetizers and snacks, lunch, dinner, and sweets and treats, are compliant with the Keto Calculator and therefore ingredient portions are provided in grams.</p> <p>The ketogenic diet, which is very high in fats and low in carbohydrates, was first developed almost 80 years ago. It makes the body burn fat for energy instead of glucose. When carefully monitored by a medical team familiar with its use, the diet helps two out of three children who are tried on it and may prevent seizures completely in one out of three. It is a strict diet, and takes a strong commitment from the whole family. The ketogenic diet is not a do-it-yourself diet. It is a serious form of treatment that, like other therapies for epilepsy, has some side effects that have to be watched for.</p> <p>The book includes a 16-page color insert illustrating each recipe. Since many children start the Keto Diet before they speak, the pictures of the meal and snack options allow children to choose what they want, helping overcome food refusal due to lack of variety of foods and/or child's loss of control over food options. This book provides parents and children with options that have been tested and are kid- and Registered Dietitian- approved.</p> <p>Features of <i>The Keto Cookbook</i> include:</p> <p><ul><li>96 kid and dietitian tested and approved recipes for the keto diet presented in full color <li>Recipes are coded by symbol to indicate personality type and cooking times <li>Allergy information for the eight most common allergens <li>Practical suggestions to help people "keto-proof" their life, from the kitchen, to the car, to the classroom. <li>Four sample shopping lists and vacation guidelines will help families prepare for the unexpected <li>Sample forms for the Transportation Safety Agency, School/Daycare Center, and Emergency Room/Primary Physician</ul></p> Read More

<P>Prisca Martens's most powerful teacher has been her daughter Sarah. When Sarah at age four responded "I already know how to rea...d" to the suggestion that this was something she would learn in kindergarten, Martens realized children's perceptions of literacy and of themselves as learners may differ from those of adults. Over the three years Martens observed and analyzed Sarah's reading and writing (ages two through five), Sarah helped Martens rethink her notions about literacy: what literacy is, how children learn literacy, and as Sarah entered kindergarten, what teachers can do to support and facilitate that learning in school. </P> <P>In <I>I Already Know How to Read</I> Martens documents how Sarah, through meaningful literacy experiences in her social community, understood literacy and invented reading and writing for herself. Numerous reading and writing samples, organized around broad research questions, present Sarah as an inquirer who actively constructs her understanding of literacy and ways to be literate. </P> <P>Martens recognizes that children's opportunities and experiences with print differ. But by looking closely at one child's literacy development, we learn how to see and understand the literacy development of others. The implications for the classroom are extraordinary-as Sarah taught her mother to see, her story will help practicing and preservice teachers to see as well. </P> Read More

Once upon a time there was a family, father, mother and 3 kids, who did not sleep well. They were the Sparrows. Everything went wr...ong in their lives. Sorrows, whispers, lapses, fights and discussions were frequent and unpleasant. In despair they called Granny, since she knew things from the good old days. Granny came with a smile, bringing with her the enchanted world of Mister Sleep and his friends. Mister Sleep knew lots of magic tricks. Along with him, there were also fairs that could tell the children the proper bedtime and make them grow while asleep, becoming smarter and stronger. With Mister Sleep there were also some amazing guys who balanced children bodies and minds so that they learned more, ate better, were keen at sports, and most of all were quieter and happier.
