(It was an accident, accidents happen). What happens next? What will I see when I visit Mommy? What about me? Will things be the same? Will things change? Does Mommy still love me? I'm a helper, what can I do? <p>Wrenchworks specializes in the writing of social stories and social tools for children of all ages and with all sorts of needs. These books are designed to serve as a launch point for a three-pronged approach to interacting with kids and tackling the complex issues of childhood: "Talk WITH Me, Play WITH Me, Read WITH Me." <p><b>Proceeds from the sale of this book will go towards making it available, at no cost, to families struggling through similar events. </b> <p> For those who wish to buy a copy of the book and have it donated directly, you can have books shipped directly to Wrenchworks' Studio at: 8101 Duluth Street, Golden Valley MN, 55427.

<div><p><B>For the Most Delicious—and Healthiest—Pregnancy Fuel!</B><BR><p>As a trained chef, Tara Mataraza Desmond knows how to c...ook—and eat. But when she became pregnant, all bets were off, and seemingly all food was suspect. Deli meat, raw milk cheese, and alcohol were out, but what is in? Lists of “verboten? foods were easy to find, but healthful, doable meals that would appeal to a pregnant woman?s finicky appetite and also feed her baby in the best way were not. Relying on prenatal vitamins didn?t sound very satisfying for this ambitious cook, who is most at ease in front of the stove. So with registered dietitian Shirley Fan, Desmond put together delicious, healthy recipes with the baby bump in mind.<br><BR>Sections include "What to Eat When You Don't Want to Eat," for that queasy and crucial first trimester, while the six chapters of recipes are accompanied by nutritional facts and bonus info to take you through all nine months (and beyond). An Iced Coffee Thickshake and a slice of Nectarine Pecan Baked Oatmeal can start the morning off right, while the Trail Mix Bars are perfect for a pick-me-up snack. Options like Cranberry Pistachio Salad with Chive Vinaigrette, Pork and Peanut Noodles, and Butternut Ragù Lasagna (which does double-duty as a great freezer-friendly meal for after the baby arrives) fill out lunch and dinner. All of the recipes even benefit the post-pregnancy bod (and feed the rest of the family) by focusing on whole foods that deliver flavor without too much fat, sugar, and empty calories that make baby weight hard to shed. Full Belly is a cookbook designed to foster a healthy, happy pregnancy—but you?ll be coming back to the delicious recipes long after baby arrives! <br></div> Read More

The transition from nursing to weaning is a rite of passage. It can either be a time full of stress, regret and confusion, or a jo...yous celebration of growth. Ready to Wean is for mothers and nursing children, to help them both communicate their deep love and respect for one another. The author believes that it is never too early for moms and dads to talk to their baby with tenderness and dignity, and to explain that nursing together is a cherished and special time. Yet, when mother no longer chooses this mutual task, or for health or other reasons cannot continue, then it is better for parent and child to begin the weaning. There is no other book like this, although many adult books are devoted to the process of weaning, in depth. Ready to Wean is a children?s picture book, designed to empower mothers in the weaning process. The friendly text reassures and prepares the child, in a confident way, for this new stage of growth, and bolsters mother?s confidence that she will continue to grow with her child, beyond this particular form Since the appearance of this book in English, national and state WIC (Women, Infants and Children) agencies are asking about release of this book in a bi-lingual (English-Spanish) edition, calling it a crucial addition to the literature. Without making any general statement about how long nursing should continue, the book cleverly and gently allows each mom to insert her own deadline date, and encourages her to start planning for this date with her child. The author knows that parents and children will be sharing this bonding experience differently, and so she suggests many lovely, nurturing alternatives that babies and young children can relate to, as the date approaches. The emotions a woman feels in pregnancy and mothering are powerful. And with nursing, these emotions are transmitted to the child, consciously or not. Many women are troubled as weaning approaches. They sometimes feel guilty, holding themselves to an unrealistic standard of perfection. They know that generally their child loves to nurse. Preparing the child for weaning is an invaluable means to avoid any shock or trauma to either mother or child. The warm and playful illustrations of master artist Diane Iverson convey a mood of joyfulness and new experience for the child, and support to any mom. Read More

This is a book for young children who have been conceived by egg donation. Professional guidance dictates that the parents of egg...-donor children may like to raise their child with the knowledge that they are from an egg-donor pregnancy. That way, the children can grow up with the knowledge of where they come from, and the fact will always be there, ready to be processed when they start to understand the facts of life. This book is intended to help parents with this task. It is targeted at very young children (aged 2 to 4 years), with lots of big pictures and few words. It explains how their parents fell in love but did not have a baby, so they went to the hospital and someone special gave them an egg. As with all books in the 'Your Story' series, there is a space for a picture of the child concerned on the last page. Read More

<b>Making Babies Book</b> is a fun, informational, artistic, and colorful pregnancy book. Follow Shoshanna through her pregnancy a...nd the birth of her daughter as she stays healthy and builds a baby. Making Babies Book covers information that is in the Making Babies DVDs volumes 1, 2, and 3, and includes many deliciously healthy recipes, wonderful gluten-free recipes, grandma s remedies, herbal concoctions, need-to-know facts, and a baby diary to learn and journal about your baby experience. Packed with 480 beautiful pages of research about fertility, conception, morning sickness, pregnancy, birth, nursing, postpartum issues, losing weight, and more!<P> I received my inspiration for the Making Babies series from the pregnancy and birth of my first child. I loved every stage of my pregnancy and birth! I enjoyed learning and researching when I had morning sickness and when I had indigestion. Every time I was faced with another bridge, I would research, study, learn, apply, and rise to new heights of excitement. I knew everything I did, and did not do, would make a difference with me and my growing baby. It is not always easy finding good food to eat, knowing what exercises to do, and asking the right questions to the right people, but I researched it step by step and enjoyed a healthy pregnancy and birth. <P> I grew up in an Amish community. Talk about making babies--whoa, they make a lot! No, I am not Amish, but I am a blood-bought child of God. Twenty-five years ago my parents were artists living in Memphis, Tennessee. They wanted to raise us five children in the country so we could learn the dying art of homemaking and the skills of country living. Hard work, herbal remedies, nutritional health, home births, and common sense were all part of the lifestyle in the Amish community. In November 2004, my husband James and I found out we were pregnant with our first child. I knew I wanted to have my baby in the soothing warmth of my own home, so I went to talk to a midwife. I had assisted in two births before I got married, and knew I wanted my children's births to be better. With good food, the right exercises, and relaxation, the birth of Jeremiah James was WONDERFUL! The midwife that attended had been to over 350 births and said it was the best she had ever attended. Since my firstborn, I never stopped researching the wonderful world of making babies. <P> I have been asked many questions about healthy foods, recipes, exercises, and herbal remedies from family, friends, and customers of Bulk Herb Store. In November 2009, we got pregnant with our second child. I was so excited about my pregnancy journey. I was going to have another baby! I thought about all the horrible births I had heard about, and wanted to show women across the world how beautiful pregnancy and birth can be, so I started the Making Babies series. <P> Making Babies is a fresh, organic look at the simplistic beauty of pregnancy and birth. From delectable recipes, superb remedies, must-have tips, birthing exercises, and resources, to relaxing techniques, this is a fun, energetic video and book series. Follow me through my pregnancy and the birth of Penelope Jane Easling. Read More

A simple story to explain the concept of egg donation to a young child. There are several books that explain the specific deta...ils of egg donation and refer to biological fertilization, eggs, sperm, donors, pregnancy, etc, etc. Tabitha and Timothy Grow a Flower is for a much younger child. It is a starter book on the subject of third party reproduction. It was written to introduce the idea of egg donation, and to provide a conceptual reference for later conversations. Since many people choose to keep their circumstances private and not share with anyone that their child was conceived via third party reproduction, this book does not mention egg donation either within its pages or on its cover. The story is very simple... Tabitha and Timothy want to grow a flower, but it doesn't happen as easily as they expect. After many unsuccessful attempts with their own seeds, they find out about a kind lady who can help them. With her assistance, they achieve their dreams and grow a beautiful flower. Read More
