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

It tells the story of how children and animals strive to surprise a special mom on Mother's Day. <br>This May bedside story and all the stories are written to further the imagination of children and to strengthen the parent and child bond through the sharing of heartwarming, silly, absurd and believably impossible tales. <br>Watch for June's bedside collection story <i>Memories in Five Balloons</i> that follows the story of how a family survives with the death of their father and how they keep his memories alive each Father's Day. <p><b><u>About the Author</u>:</b> <br>As a doctorate level practitioner serving school children for more than 35 years, Edward Galluzzi became keenly aware that children and their parents often had in short supply what families needed the most: open communication and sharing time together. The <i>Bedside Story Collection Series</i> was written to provide families a moment here and a moment there to come together and share heart warming, silly and believably unbelievable tales. <br>The stories are tied typically to the main holiday or theme of each month, more or less. The characters in the stories are based on what children relate to the most... animals and other children. There are also over 100 colored drawings sketched by children ranging from 7 months to 12 years of age. The stories from Mr. Galluzzi's imagination and the drawings from theirs come together to stimulate the imaginations of children and open a whole new world for parents and their children to share. <br>That is his gift to your family. Time for sharing... time for laughing... time for talking... time for each other. Not once upon a time, but Twelve Upon A Time.... Read More

Lines of the Times<br> Why are we here?<br> How did we get here<br> Who created us if we do, in fact, have a creator?<br> Where do... we go when we die?<br> <p>Aren't you glad they don't ask those questions on job applications? Chances are, you and your friends have probably sat around on a Saturday night with a bag of cheese puffs and pondered such dilemmas. A. Mohit's book, <I>One God in You and Me</i>, is just like one of those conversations, though a lot less fattening. <P>Without doubt, Mr. Mohit is a brave soul, putting religion, a firecracker of controversy, in your face, and dissecting the concept more throughly than your first unfortunate frog in biology class. It s well researched, inquisitive, and gutsy. Like a child who s just asked his flustered parents about the birds and the bees, the book explores the mysteries of the universe while stomping on any taboo topics which may arise. <P>For some people, there may be a gasp on every page, as the author exhibits a blatant disregard for conventional attitudes. He does the unthinkable, challenging the notion that different religions are, in fact, really different. If that isn't enough, he has the audacity to suggest that while rituals may vary, all religions share a common core, reflecting the basic human need for hope. <P>Perhaps the most eyebrow-raising goal of the book is to merge science and religion. Of course, I would advise you not to try this at home, unless you've practiced first with oil and water. Mohit uses philosophy, physics, ideologies of ancient cultures, and anything else he can get his hands on while trying to logically reason so many ambiguities of the world. Though the subject matter is nothing less than intriguing, the author at times, throws too many cookies into the jar, making it impossible to digest everything at once. <P>Math phobics may wince at the extensive discussion of physics, and I must admit my hair curled at first sight of the frequency wave chart, but I guarantee, as you read, light bulb will continuously flash above your head. You'll go on mental treasure hunt, where ideas are presented in such a way that you'll feel compelled to hang in there, see where it s going, and then decide if it makes sense to you. <P>When the fat lady sung, does the book succeed in making sense of it all? Like a never-ending puzzle or one of those awful Rubik's Cubes, there may never be a definite solution. Unfortunately, we are still frustrated gerbils running on wheels that go nowhere. But this book is perfect for contemplative moods, like those times when the rain is pouring, and you have one of those umbrellas that never opens, and you are feeling so small in the universe. Or when you re sitting in rush hour traffic, and you find yourself wondering if you could just slam into the car in front of you, and would such an impulsive action be the result of fate, free will, or excessive irritability? <P>Granted, while reading this work, I often felt as though I was participating in brain Olympics, but at the same time, I found it challenging. If you are looking for light, coffee table reading, stick with TV Guide, but if you enjoy trying to solve a baffling mystery, this book will leave you spell bound. -- Renee Lukas Read More

For her piece about soccer, she told me that she knew she needed to include more details because she didn't want the reader to be confused. We had already read Ralph's "Squirming Wizards of Recycling," so we looked at the Writer's Notes. Ralph said he had brainstormed questions that readers may have had as they read about worm composting, and he then tried to include the answers to those questions in the piece. Suzy decided that she would write down questions that she thought her reader might still have about soccer and then make sure those questions were answered in her writing.

Some of us are lucky enough to be born into this world and catch all the breaks. Then there are those of us who don't catch very m...any, or any at all. Here is the story of a young man who barely made it into the world-who got a rough deal right out of the gate. From the time he was born there always seemed to be some setback or health issue facing him. With each issue, each hurdle, he found the courage within himself to face every obstacle that came his way. There were many times during his life that things looked pretty bleak. Whether it was the surgeries he had to endure or being a little bit behind and underdeveloped compared to other kids his age, he still managed to persevere and grow up to be the bright young man that he is today. He is now in the seventh grade and on the verge of becoming a teenager. He loves movies, swimming, baseball, and playing video games-just the same as any other kid his age. This is the story of my son Thomas. A story of how a boy found the courage and strength within himself and along the way taught his parents about finding that same strength to overcome great odds.

I have spent the majority of my career traveling. Pursuing a career I loved wasn't always easy because the trade-off was leaving K...atie, my young daughter. I searched and searched for a book to read to Katie to let her know how much I loved her, even when I wasn't home. But it seems that book didn't exist so I decided to write one for all the parents and children in my same situation. Long Distance Goodnight Kisses shares the story of a working mom traveling across the country for a job she loves but struggling to let her young daughter know her first choice was being at home with her. This is a story of how long distance goodnight kisses helped bridge the gap that distance created. My hope is that other traveling parents can read this book to their children to let them know that no matter how far away they are, love is always present. By parents sharing their careers with their children, they are setting an example that their children are loved dearly and can be anything they want to be when they grow up. And from this book, I want kids to understand that they are not alone in getting long distance goodnight kisses. Read More
