Life's Work: Confessions of an Unbalanced Mom [Paperback]

lifeswork.jpg

In a time when most parents feel lucky to just have a job, the concept of work/life balance seems like wishful thinking. As parents, we feel pulled in so many directions. Sometimes you are a better worker than mother. Sometimes you are a better mother than worker. You are not alone. Life's Work: Confessions of an Unbalanced Mom is one mother's perspective on keeping all those balls in the air. It's also reassuring to know that if one of those balls falls, that's okay too.

Coloring Outside Autism's Lines: 50+ Activities, Adventures, and Celebrations for Families with Children with Autism

autismbook.jpg

As a parent of a child on the autism spectrum, I was so excited to have a chance to review this book. I had so many mixed emotions about this topic. After all, autism is about predictability and routine. It makes things like spontaneous road trips and day trips to stimulating places almost impossible. Or does it? Coloring Outside Autism's Lines: 50+ Activities, Adventures, and Celebrations for Families with Children with Autism really opened my eyes to ways a family can enjoy time together with just a few simple adjustments. Advanced preparation such as bringing your own food or planned breaks can open up whole new experiences. These experiences will not only benefit the family, but they just might open up a little bit more of the world to your child.

What to Expect When You're Expecting

whattoexpect.jpg

If you are pregnant and have questions, turn to a resource new moms have been trusting for years. The What to Expect series of books has become a must have for any expectant parent. The latest edition of What to Expect When You're Expecting has been completely updated since it was first released about a quarter of a century ago. It still has the same reader friendly style, but there is a greater focus on the importance of nutrition before and during pregnancy. There is even a chapter dedicated to multiples since they are more common now than 24 years ago. This is a version a modern mom can relate to.

Saferforyourbabyrevisededition.jpg


It seems that everyone has a story about their child or a child they know that has been impacted by allergies, asthma or autism. Many people believe these increases in childhood illnesses can be traced to pesticides and other chemicals our children are exposed to early in life. If you have a concern about the environment and how it impacts your child's life, there are plenty of resources you can check. Safer for your baby is one of those resources. This book will make you aware of potentially harmful chemicals that may be found in household items. It's printed on recycled paper and printed using soy ink. It's a great tool for you and eco friendly too, that's serious multi tasking.

My Quiet Book

quietbook.gif

This is the season for summer reading. If you think your infant is too young to learn to love reading, think again. Now is the best time to introduce your child to books and learning. There is no shortage of books to choose from, but a great place to start is My Quiet Book. This brightly colored book will introduce your child to shapes, sizes and textures that will be the foundation for later learning. It's called the quiet book because it is so soft in case your child drops it. That's a feature any parent can appreciate.

eBooks for kids

story-book-incolor.jpg

As the saying goes, "Times, they are a changin." Move over big hard board books, and make room for the first eBook made for children. This eBook operates just like Kindle or other electronic book readers on the market, with a few changes to make it child friendly. For starters, it's in full color and has large buttons for smaller fingers. In addition, every twenty minutes a timer reminds the child to rest their eyes. Books can be downloaded from any PC via USB to ensure a wide selection for your child to choose from. One charge will allow the book to run for approximately 2 hours, assuming you can get your child to read that long. When not in use, the book doubles as a digital frame to show off all the pictures you will be taking of your child reading.
