<p>A <em>Wall Street Journal</em> writer’s conversation-changing look at how reading aloud makes adults and children smarter, happier, healthier, more successful and more closely attached, even as technology pulls in the other direction.<br /><br />A miraculous alchemy occurs when one person reads to another, transforming the simple stuff of a book, a voice, and a bit of time into complex and powerful fuel for the heart, brain, and imagination. Grounded in the latest neuroscience and behavioral research, and drawing widely from literature, <em>The Enchanted Hour</em> explains the dazzling cognitive and social-emotional benefits that await children, whatever their class, nationality or family background. But it’s not just about bedtime stories for little kids: Reading aloud consoles, uplifts and invigorates at every age, deepening the intellectual lives and emotional well-being of teenagers and adults, too.</p><p>Meghan Cox Gurdon argues that this ancient practice is a fast-working antidote to the fractured attention spans, atomized families and unfulfilling ephemera of the tech era, helping to replenish what our devices are leaching away. For everyone, reading aloud engages the mind in complex narratives; for children, it’s an irreplaceable gift that builds vocabulary, fosters imagination, and kindles a lifelong appreciation of language, stories and pictures.</p><p>Bringing together the latest scientific research, practical tips, and reading recommendations, <em>The Enchanted Hour</em> will both charm and galvanize, inspiring readers to share this invaluable, life-altering tradition with the people they love most. </p>

<b>A healthy cookbook to share with a partner, featuring more than 100 recipes designed to nourish your bodies and souls.</b><br /><b> </b><br /><b>An <i>Epicurious</i> Best Cookbook for Spring</b> • <b>“<i>Healthier Together</i> focuses on real whole foods and bringing community together.”—Kelly LeVeque, celebrity nutritionist and bestselling author of <i>Body Love</i></b><br /><br />Food writer and health blogger Liz Moody once followed trendy diets and ate solely for fuel, not for flavor. That changed when she met her soon-to-be-boyfriend and they started cooking nutrient- and vegetable-rich meals. She not only fell in love with food again, but she also discovered that setting goals and sticking to them is easier and more gratifying when paired with someone else. Mincing garlic and sautéing onions together eventually led the couple to marriage—proving that good food really is the universal connector!<br /><br /> These 100+ flavor-packed recipes are designed to be cooked and enjoyed by two people, plus they’re all gluten-free, dairy-free, and plant-centered. They include homemade alternatives for all the foods you love to share, such as brunch, takeout, and sweet treats. Indulge in Cardamom Banana Bread Pancakes with Candied Coffee Walnuts, Cornflake “Fried” Chicken, General Tso’s Cauliflower, and Chocolate Tahini Brownie Bites.

<DIV><P><I>Art Workshop for Children</I> is not just another book of straightforward art projects. The book's unique child-led approach provides a framework for cultivating creative thinking and encourages the wonder that comes when children are allowed to freely explore the creative process and their materials.<BR /><BR /> As children work through these open-ended workshops, adults are guided on how to be facilitators who provide questions, encourage deep thinking, and help spark an excitement for discovery.<BR /><BR /> Children explore basic materials and workshops that use minimal supplies, and then gradually add new materials to fill the art cabinets as well as new skills and more complex workshops. Most workshops are suitable to preschool-aged children, and each contains ideas for explorations and new twists to engage older or more experienced artists. </P><P>Interspersed throughout are sidebar essays that introduce perspectives on mess-making, imperfection, the role of adult, collaborative art, and thoughts on the Reggio Emilia method, a self-guided teaching philosophy.<BR /><BR /> These pieces underscore the value of art-making with children, and support the parent/teacher/care-giver on how to successfully lead, question, and navigate their children through the workshops to result in the fullest experiences.</P></DIV>

<p><b>LEARNING THROUGH PLAY</b></p> <p>One of the best ways for children with autism, Asperger's, and sensory processing disorders to learn is through play.

In <i>101 Games and Activities for Children with Autism, Asperger's, and Sensory Processing Disorders,</i> she shows you how to teach your children by moving their bodies through play. These interactive games are quick to learn but will provide hours of fun and learning for your child. And many of the games can be played indoors or outdoors, so your child can enjoy them at home, outside, or on field trips.</p> <p>More than one hundred games that help your child:</p> <ul> <li>make eye-contact, stay focused, and strengthen his or her motor skills</li> <li>associate words with objects and improve language and numerical skills</li> <li>learn how to interact with others, how to take turns, and other social skills needed for attending preschool and school</li> </ul>
