Happy Weekend everyone !!!!

In our quest to find you the Top Books and Activities for your Family, we’d like to start by putting a little Awe into your children’s lives. This simple act can help them focus less on themselves, and more on others. Loved reading this article. “An Awesome Way to Make Kids Less Self-Absorbed” from Greater Good.

Lastly, many of you may have seen my book The Ultimate Guide to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory go to #1 on iTunes on the iBookstore Children’s Non-fiction list. We, Roscoe Welply and I, were beyond thrilled and completely ecstatic !!! There was a lot of hooping and hollering going on. Imagine seeing your book sitting next to the Hobbit, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, etc. It was totally surreal. As our way of saying a HUGE thank you for all your support we’ve decided to keep The Ultimate Guide to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory @ 3.99 through the month of December.
