Fairy Tales Every Child Should Know

1 Jul

Here’s what your little one is looking for (and just doesn’t know it yet) – personally I think bed time stories are a great way to help children wind down from the day and go to sleep. So feel free after washing faces, brushing teeth follow it with a lavender bath and then go ahead have your little one put on their pajamas and read them one of these classic fairy tales while laying in bed. Reading together at night will allow for more bonding time with your child and less stimulation form the television or other distractions. I recommend this book whether its for your child, grandchildren or a gift.

This book includes the following: Enchanted Stag; Twelve Brothers; Puss in Boots; Jack and the Beanstalk; Princess on the Pea; Ugly Duckling; Light Princess; Beauty and the Beast; Hansel and Gretel; Jack the Giant Killer; Second Voyage of Sinbad the Sailor; Story of Aladdin, or the Wonderful Lamp. Illustrated with 8 engravings by Mary Hamilton Frye. Hamilton Wright Mabie (1846-1916) was an American essayist, editor, critic, and lecturer.

Are you looking for some great resources to help teach your child outside of their present curriculum?

Maybe your looking for a more in-depth learning or perhaps just to have some additional resources to pull from. These books are perfect for both the home schooled child or school educated child. Many parents have found these books easy enough to use at home for children that might have struggled with classroom instruction.

The Blue Back Speller by Noah Webster – for  5 generations this book was used in schools to help teach children to read & write

McGuffey’s Eclectic Readers by William McGuffey – many parents have used these books to help teach their children to read when they were struggling learning in class room techniques

Math Fables by Greg Tang – helps children learn beyond just counting



Books on Finances (for beginners)

7 May

Finances can be stressful especially when mismanaged and that can lead to  problems both in a marriage or between parents and children in single parent households. I wanted to provide you with some resource listings to help encourage you to get better control of your family’s finances:

Dave Ramsey’s Total Money Makeover

Suze Orman’s The Money Class

I think either one of these books is a great place to start without being overwhelmed.

Conceiving and Fertility

15 Apr

Today I am featuring some books about conception, it can be very hard for couples trying to conceive that really need and want to have a child and yet they are having trouble getting pregnant. Also, many women are having children later in life which can play an important role as well. Whatever the reason here are a books you should read whether your having a hard time conceiving your first child or another child I hope these books will help you.The first step to helping yourself though is to REDUCE STRESS. This may seem overly simple but I personally knew someone who had a daughter who was my age and waited 15 years before she had  her second child and no she didn’t have IVF or a surrogate she was able to conceive naturally, carry full term and deliver (why you ask well she had a high stress job, she went from one miscarriage to another and its was all very tolling on her both physically and emotionally eventually she switched jobs and reduced her stress and she did get pregnant and delivered a healthy baby girl.) Stress is a real problem it can affect ones ability to get pregnant, also make sure to be eating healthy, taking proper nutritional supplements, and consider alternative medicine (be open minded and see an acupuncturist.)  All the books below I posted are available via Amazon.com some stores like Barnes and Nobles may carry them as well however I felt you should be able to read reviews and check the prices to see which ones interest you.

Making Babies

The Infertility Cure

Taking Charge of Your Fertility

Restoring Fertility

The Fertility Diet

Not only will these books possibly help you but also read about FertiliTea (which is good for women trying to conceive) Read this blogger’s post about conception here
