<DIV>Announcing <I>Eating Well When You're Expecting</I>, providing moms-to-be with a realistic approach to navigating healthily a...nd deliciously through the nine months of pregnancy?at home, in the office, over the holidays, in restaurants. Thorough chapters are devoted to nutrition, weight gain, food safety, the postpartum diet, and how to eat when trying to conceive again. And, very exciting, the book comes with 150 contemporary, tasty, and healthy recipes that feed mom and baby well, take little time to prepare, and are gentle on queasy tummies. <br><br> A departure from its predecessor, <I>What to Eat When You?re Expecting</I>, which has 976,000 copies in print, <I>Eating Well </I>loses the whole-wheatier-than-thou attitude, and comes with a light, reader-friendly tone while delivering the most up-to-date information. At the heart of the book are hundreds of pressing questions every mother-to-be has:<I> Is it true I shouldn?t eat any food cooked with alcohol? Will the caffeine in coffee cross into my baby?s bloodstream? Help!?I?m entering my second trimester, and I?m losing weight, not gaining. Is all sushi off limits? How do I get enough calcium if I?m lactose intolerant? I keep dreaming about a hot fudge sundae?can I indulge?</I> Guess what: the answer is yes.</DIV> Read More

<DIV>The first new idea in maze books since Egyptian times. Originally self- published, <I>Mummy Mazes</I> has won awards and seal...s of approval from Dr. Toy, The National Parenting Center, Independent Publishers, and <I>Creative Child Magazine</I>. <br><br>Written and drawn by Elizabeth Carpenter, <I>Mummy Mazes</I> is ingeniously designed to open up to 28 poster-size pages?these are deliciously big mazes, the kind kids will pore over for hours. There are mummies, monuments, and intricate murals, ancient gods and the Pharaoh?s mask, scarabs, an Egyptian night sky, and the Giant Sphinx who guards the pyramid complex at Giza. The meticulously drawn mazes lead kids through hieroglyphics, cracks in the limestone, detailed wall paintings, and more. Adding to the fun, each maze is linked by an adventure?the reader joins Professor Archie Ologist on an expedition from the Colossi of Memnon into the heart of long-lost tombs, learning along the way about the cat-goddess Bastet, why both men and women wore wigs, and how much linen it sometimes took to wrap an important mummy (three miles? worth!). Once all the mazes are completed, there?s a hieroglyphic puzzle to solve at the end?and then the whole doubles as a coloring book. The pages are perforated to tear, color, and then display on the wall. </DIV> Read More

It's impossible not to flip the page, and flip it again, and again, and again.<br><br> A first book of motion for kids, it shows a horse in full gallop and a turtle swimming up the page. A dog runs, a cat springs, an eagle soars, and a butterfly flutters.

It harkens back to the old magical days of the kinetoscope, and the effect is astonishing, like a Muybridge photo series springing into action?or, in terms kids can relate to, like a video without a screen. Complementing the art is a delightful rhyming text full of simple questions and fun, nonsense replies: <I>Can you gallop like a horse? giddyup-a-loo!

Robots and kids: a perfect combination. From R2-D2 to the Transformers to WALL-E, robots are a source of endless fascination. Now ...comes an irresistible book and kit that shows how to make ten different robots?that move?out of the most ordinary things from around the house. By delivering an experience that?s so much richer than putting together a model, this book gets to the essence of creativity and imaginative problem-solving and shows how to be an inventor, designer, and engineer all in one.<br /><br />Created by robot expert Robert Malone, chairman of the Automation Hall of Fame, the plans are ingenious and include a materials list (rounding it up is like a treasure hunt!) plus step-by-step directions illustrated with detailed, full-color photographs. The kit includes all the essential accessories: a battery-operated motor and two windup walkers, plus templates, dowels, beads, wire, mounting squares?and googly eyes.<br /><br />Transform a leftover action figure into Armorbot. Start with a few paper cups, and presto, Cupbot. Repurpose cardboard boxes and tubes into the endlessly adaptable Boxbot?it even has a rotating head. From the tiny Hopbot?put it on the floor and you?ll see how it got its name?to giant Styrobot, here are ten plans to make a roomful of robotic wonders. Read More

<DIV>What a big idea! And what big fun: A whopping oversize book of interactive paper models to appeal to every kid who loves big ...machines?which pretty much covers all of them.<BR /><BR /> These are the coolest big machines that kids love?each re-created in an oversize paper model that, once built, really moves. The book has everything the reader needs to pop out, fold, and create a full-color model of ten big machines: a dump truck, space shuttle, excavator, ladder truck, front loader, concrete mixer, steam locomotive, steamboat, dirigible, Chinook helicopter. Created by Phil Conigliaro, a gifted paper engineer and artist, the models are printed on sturdy card stock; perforated to pop out and fold; require only gluing (no tape or pins); and come with complete, easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions. And, worth repeating, each one moves: Wheels roll and the mixer turns, helicopter blades spin, and the excavator?s boom and bucket raises and lowers.<BR /><BR /> Additionally there?s the story of each machine?how it works, who invented it, what it?s used for. Kids will learn the history of the steam shovel?the smoking, hissing monster that dug the Panama Canal, the largest engineering feat of the 20th century; how astronauts in a space shuttle could withstand the 3,000 degrees of heat created when it returned to Earth; how the world?s largest dump truck can haul a million pounds. It?s big stuff!</DIV> Read More
