Get Your Hands on a Good Book!



Need some help getting little Tommy or little Susie to use the toilet? Well, maybe Dr. Todd Spector can help! As a family physician, Dr. Spector presents a fresh and outrageously fun way to encourage little boys and girls to give up their diapers. And he presents these ideas in "How to Pee: potty training for boys," and "How to Pee: potty training for girls." They can try it fresh-air style (in the backyard!), or use the potty with the help of a few props and plenty of imagination.  Inspired by Dr. Spector's own experiences potty training his children, this combination of laugh-out-loud scenarios and useful advice turns the dreaded potty-training process into an exciting adventure for all.  Arree Chung provides the delightful illustrations!

Is your child facing the battle of food allergies? Katrina Jorgensen offers neat new cookbooks for kids facing such restrictions. In "Beat the Wheat," you'll find easy and delicious wheat-free recipes for mac and cheese, cookies and other foods you thought were off limits. "No Peanuts, No Problem," presents nut-free recipes from breakfast to desert, using alternatives such as sunflower butter or flaxseed meal. Little helpers will soon learn that cooking can be fun and food choices not such a drudgery!

Have you got a little history buff eager to learn more? "America's First Ladies," by Kathleen Krulls introduces the Presidents' wives with fun anecdotes and personal information. Your budding historian will learn what our country's First Ladies thought, did, and advocated for as they moved into the White House.

And for the aspiring artist, who better to turn to for inspiration than Scooby-Doo! Yep, learn to doodle with Scooby teaching you all the tricks! This series includes "Monster Doodles with Scooby-Doo," "Food Doodles with Scooby-Doo," "Animal Doodles with Scooby-Doo," and "Vehicle Doodles with Scooby-Doo." Each volume  features step-by-step instructions and "raugh-out-roud" jokes!
