A Tale of Two Daddies
$8.95

"A Tale of Two Daddies" is a playground conversation between two children. The boy says he heard that the girl has two dads. The girl says that is right--she has Daddy and Poppa. True to a child's curiosity, practical questions follow: "Which dad helps when your team needs a coach? / Which dad cooks you eggs and toast?" To which she answers: "Daddy is my soccer coach. / Poppa cooks me eggs and toast."


Intended for 4- to 8-year olds, this book introduces a type of family increasingly visible in modernm society. Neither favoring nor condemning, it reflects a child's practical and innocent look at the adults who nurture and love her. It becomes clear that the family bond is unburdened by any cultural discomforts.

There are math problems--Yoda is holding 7 lightsabers. 5 of the lightsabers are blue. The rest are green. How many green lightsabers is he holding? And Language Arts--Circle the correct homophone in this sentence: Luke is a Jedi knight/night.

Parenting Without the Power Struggles

product image
$2.99
Through the miracle of birth, parents are given a tiny, defenseless babe totally dependent on them for every physical need. They have a mere eighteen years at most to ready that suckling for a world that can be cruel and heartless. That child's success in the real world hinges in large part on the parents. Just thinking about raising responsible, well-rounded kids sends a sobering shiver of responsibility right up the old parental spine.

But all is not so bleak. There's hope, shining beacon-bright, at the end of the tunnel of parental frustration. Parenting doesn't have to be drudgery. Children can grow to be thinking, responsible adults. This booklet, excerpted and adapted from the best-selling Parenting with Love and Logic, was designed to help parents and kids establish a rewarding relationship built on love and trust. What a deal! By parenting with Love and Logic, mothers and fathers can do away with the power struggles and put the fun back into parenting.

Trees are a valuable natural resource. People depend on trees for food, and animals depend on trees for food and shelter. But most important, we depend on trees because they add oxygen, a gas we all need, to the air. While trees give us many wonderful products, we must also protect them because we can't live without them.
