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

His childhood friend Piper wrinkled her nose at him all the time, reminding him of that growing problem. It was bad enough that she was already two inches taller than him.</p> <p>Oh, she has wings too, and smells better. And is getting her magic first. Not fair.</p> <p>When the wing hunter surprises everyone and corners Austin and Piper on a remote Montana reservation, they run away from their wingless families to protect them and fly toward the last safe place they know, Monument Valley, seven hundred miles away. Getting there seemed like the hard part, but when the Valley falls to the hunter the real struggle begins to evade capture and find the fiery magic hidden within them. If Austin can control the magical outbursts his budding feelings for Piper trigger, he can save their lives from the hunter and the deadly magic inside.</p> <p>Professionally edited.</p> Read More

<p>What happens when the mightiest of mortals take on the greatest of gods in an apocalyptic basketball showdown? </p><p>Zeus, Her...a, Poseidon, and the rest of the Gods' squad have all the powers of the universe at their disposal-which makes for a deadly defense and an unstoppable offense. But those "pesky Mortals" are always causing trouble, and with hunky Hercules at the top of his game and Achilles' heel healing nicely after his surgery, the Mortals manage to stay alive until halftime. Who knows what mythological magic the Gods will have to conjure up to win this Hellenic heart stopper?</p><p>Complete with toga-clad announcers and a halftime report on the wonders of ancient Greece, Kevin O'Malley's Mount Olympus Basketball makes learning about ancient Greek myths more exciting than March Madness.</p><p>As punishment for acting out in class, Kevin was often sent to the library for a "timeout". Resigned to his fate, he grudgingly started to leaf through a pile of picture books. There were pictures of cute little ponies, cute little puppies, and cute little children with smiling parents beaming behind them. Yuck, yuck, and double yuck! Then, just when he thought he would fall off his chair and die of cuteness, Kevin came upon a picture of a boy in a wolf suit who was threatening to eat his mother. In another picture he was chasing his dog with a fork. This was somebody Kevin could relate to. He kept reading as the boy cavorted through the forest with big hairy monsters. Kevin loved it! The book was, of course, Where the Wild Things Are. From then on, Kevin wanted to illustrate children's books. Not cute children's books, but books for kids like him.</p> Read More

As a young boy with a lot of new friends, Ray considers the empty lot as an exciting playground. But the tale behind the lot keeps the boy intrigued and frightened as he learns that the house that was once there was burned down years ago, leaving a girl dead amid the fire. The little girl, as the neighborhood kids say, comes out in the night to regain her life.

Ages 8-12 A child asking the question, "Is Santa real?" does not want to wait through a movie or a longer book to get their answer.... They are expecting a yes or a no right away. This book is a thoughtful way to expand on that answer, written and drawn to be understood and enjoyed by children who are eight to eleven or twelve. Every child gets older and has questions about Santa Claus. This time need not be one of sadness and disappointment?for the child or the adult. "The Real Magic of Santa Claus" is a lesson in love and sharing. The goal of the book is, in five or ten minutes, to turn what is sometimes a disappointing yes-or-no answer, into a cherished experience for both the child and parent or grand-parent. "The Real Magic of Santa Claus" answers a child's questions honestly in such a way that the reader will come to their own conclusion as to whether or not Santa is a man in a red suit. They go on to discover that they are now part of the story, and that the heart of a generous orphan boy from Turkey can live on in them, as it has in millions for over a thousand years. They'll discover that this is much more magical than flying reindeer. (c) 2009 Canamucio Read More

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
