The technique offers a foolproof method of disciplining children ages two through 12 without arguing, yelling, or spanking.

Ten strategies for building a child’s self-esteem and the six types of testing and manipulation a parent can expect from the child are discussed, as well as tips on how to prevent homework arguments, make mealtimes more enjoyable, conduct effective family meetings, and encourage children to start doing their household chores. New advice about kids and technology and new illustrations bring this essential parenting companion completely up-to-date.
Now available for the first time: all three novels from the amazing Magnus Chase series, collected in one stunning digital edition. My name is Magnus Chase. I'm orphaned and living rough on the streets of Boston. And things are about to get much worse. My day started out normally enough. I was sleeping under a bridge when some guy kicked me awake and said, 'They're after you.' Next thing I know, I'm reunited with my obnoxious uncle, who casually informs me that my long-lost father is a Norse god. And it turns out the gods of Asgard are preparing for war. Apparently, if I can't find the sword my father lost two thousand years ago, there will be doom. Doomsday, to be precise. But first I'm going to die. This is the story of how my life goes downhill from there... Magnus Chase: The Complete Series includes all three novels in the action-packed, electrifying series from Rick Riordan: The Sword of Summer, The Hammer of Thor and The Ship of the Dead

Singing Body and Soul is for the young singer, to help you discover how your voice, body and mind work together. There are great books about the links between science and music - but most are written for adults with strong music backgrounds, and college degrees. Young singers need a streamlined version so your voice can express your inner life - right now! The voice has the most exciting sound when a singer is between 20 to 25 years old. That's when desire starts to ride on the sound, and helps you stand out at an audition. By then, you already need years of singing experience - to make the most of your opportunities. That means learning about your voice early - at 14 years old or younger. Singing - Body and Soul offers new guidance for developing your singing. It includes artistic and scientific descriptions, and uses song lyrics to illustrate states of mind. Musical Theater plots, characters, and songs fill the book, so the text is more storytelling than classroom lecture. With quotes and references from Charlie Brown, Albert Einstein, and Dr. Seuss, Singing - Body and Soul can help you understand your voice in new ways, and make the world hear what you have to say.
