Try to come up a food starting with letter H, Hot-dog; How about letter P, Pizza; How about letter Q, U, and Z? As you already know, food is not simply the source of the energy for animals, human being included; it is the fundamental of the survivorship. When a baby is born, the first instinct is longing for food that takes the hunger away and brings in the comfort. Can you imagine what a situation could be if you lost the appetite? It might mean sad or illness. Food gives us the energy to enjoy life; eating gives use enjoyment and shows the spirit of a culture. This book includes handwriting, math and reading sections that are almost all food related. Let your children enjoy it. They may appreciate a little more of the food that you work hard to put it on the table every day.

For a left-handed child in a right-friendly world, tasks that should come easily can seem confusing and frustrating. Parents of the more than 400,000 lefties born annually in the United States have had no resource that deals seriously with the learning difficulties their children face -- until now. Loving Lefties is the first ever guide to address all the issues pertinent to left-handedness: the biology, the physiology, and the psychological and practical effects of being a left-handed child. An essential aid for parents, teachers, and professionals, it covers the history and mythology of the left-handed brain, and offers sound advice on: • recognizing left-handedness in a child • making your child's home and school lefty-friendly • giving your child appropriate direction and encouragement • identifying the advantages of being left-handed • helping your child learn the skills his right-handed parents, instructors, and siblings consider basic. Filled with resource lists, guidelines, quick tips, answers to frequently asked questions, case studies, and anecdotes, Loving Lefties is the essential guide for raising a happy, healthy southpaw.

This book presents an innovative approach for kids to form an elegant handwriting style subconsciously. With this book, kids read the famous story "How Toys Become Real" and, meanwhile, trace the story word by word. The sequential finger movements activate neural activities involving thinking, language, and memory. Their attention is on the story characters, like the rabbit, skin horse and fairy during practice. Subconsciously, the signals of fine motor movements in the hand pass from fingertips into brain. Gradually, a neat and elegant handwriting style forms. Forming a neat and elegant handwriting style is not the ultimate goal of this book. It is actually a byproduct of beginning writing practice. When kids are asked to, "trace the words like you are writing a story," it leads to a sense of writing a story; a fun and creative activity. It is well known that handwriting practice will improve idea composition and expression. This book enhances this educational approach and will get kids started on writing at early age. Recent studies have shown that children write more words, faster, and express more ideas when writing essays by hand, versus with a keyboard. This book provides a tool for kids who would like and stay ahead of the competition curve.

The Southern Reach Trilogy begins with this Nebula Award-winning novel that "reads as if Verne or Wellsian adventurers exploring a mysterious island had warped through into a Kafkaesque nightmare world" (Kim Stanley Robinson). Area X has been cut off from the rest of the continent for decades. Nature has reclaimed the last vestiges of human civilization. The first expedition returned with reports of a pristine, Edenic landscape; the second expedition ended in mass suicide; the third expedition in a hail of gunfire as its members turned on one another. The members of the eleventh expedition returned as shadows of their former selves, and within weeks, all had died of cancer. In Annihilation, the first volume of Jeff VanderMeer's Southern Reach trilogy, we join the twelfth expedition. The group is made up of four women: an anthropologist; a surveyor; a psychologist, the de facto leader; and our narrator, a biologist. Their mission is to map the terrain, record all observations of their surroundings and of one another, and, above all, avoid being contaminated by Area X itself. They arrive expecting the unexpected, and Area X delivers—they discover a massive topographic anomaly and life forms that surpass understanding—but it's the surprises that came across the border with them and the secrets the expedition members are keeping from one another that change everything.

The small business guru behind Duct Tape Marketing shares his most valuable lesson: how to get your customers to do your best marketing for you. The power of glitzy advertising and elaborate marketing campaigns is on the wane; word- of-mouth referrals are what drive business today. People trust the recommendation of a friend, family member, colleague, or even stranger with similar tastes over anything thrust at them by a faceless company. Most business owners believe that whether customers refer them is entirely out of their hands. But science shows that people can't help recommending products and services to their friends-it's an instinct wired deep in the brain. And smart businesses can tap into that hardwired desire. Marketing expert John Jantsch offers practical techniques for harnessing the power of referrals to ensure a steady flow of new customers. Keep those customers happy, and they will refer your business to even more customers. Some of Jantsch's strategies include: -Talk with your customers, not at them. Thanks to social networking sites, companies of any size have the opportunity to engage with their customers on their home turf as never before-but the key is listening. -The sales team is the most important part of your marketing team. Salespeople are the company's main link to customers, who are the main source of referrals. Getting them on board with your referral strategy is critical. -Educate your customers. Referrals are only helpful if they're given to the right people. Educate your customers about whom they should be talking to. The secret to generating referrals lies in understanding the "Customer Referral Cycle"-the way customers refer others to your company who, in turn, generate even more referrals. Businesses can ensure a healthy referral cycle by moving customers and prospects along the path of Know, Like, Trust, Try, Buy, Repeat, and Refer. If everyone in an organization keeps this sequence in mind, Jantsch argues, your business will generate referrals like a well-oiled machine. This practical, smart, and original guide is essential reading for any company looking to grow without a fat marketing budget.
