I'm passionate about kids building safe, strong relationships with family and trustworthy friends and neighbours. If you would like your children, grand children, nieces, nephews, or other kids in your care to build these relationships and develop strong social skills in a world surrounded by technology, this book is a great tool.
You can get their calls - even if they can't read and don't know their numbers, yet. They can even learn to dial 911, if you want them to. How? Through pictures and pattern recognition. Why this book?
“Ack! Do I need to go gluten free,” you might think in despair. Don't worry. Living gluten free or having celiac disease doesn't mean you have to suffer or miss out. It just means changing the food you eat and planning ahead. There are lots of great blogs and informational websites out there that can make eating gluten free a healthy pleasure. There are absolutely fantastic recipes (yes, and many poor ones, too). Sure, you still end up taking food along to potlucks, but you may just be the envy of the party!

What has made a really positive difference in our school day is the draw box system, complete with a materials' writing box, that I created to help make writing more fun and to help my son to overcome his resistance to writing. We have gone from essentially making him do his work (tension, frustration, time-consuming), to him looking forward to what we are going to do!
