If you have read a few baby books or searched the Internet for
parenting tips you have most likely stumbled across the mythical
Unicorn Baby. This is the baby who feeds every four hours and sleeps
through the night, sits at six months, pees pure gold and poops
Each of these ten myths is explored and then debunked, helping parents to understand biologically why their baby may not be behaving as they were told they would. Acknowledging that every baby is unique, this book helps new parents navigate the first year, explaining the latest neuroscience in understandable, practical terms, before sharing some fascinating stories of other real-life babies.
April 2017 marks 20 years since Robert Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad Poor Dad first made waves in the Personal Finance arena.
It has since become the #1 Personal Finance book of all time... translated into dozens of languages and sold around the world.
Rich Dad Poor Dad is Robert's story of growing up with two dads — his real father and the father of his best friend, his rich dad — and the ways in which both men shaped his thoughts about money and investing. The book explodes the myth that you need to earn a high income to be rich and explains the difference between working for money and having your money work for you.
20 Years... 20/20 Hindsight
In the 20th Anniversary Edition of this classic, Robert offers an update on what we’ve seen over the past 20 years related to money, investing, and the global economy. Sidebars throughout the book will take readers “fast forward” — from 1997 to today — as Robert assesses how the principles taught by his rich dad have stood the test of time.
In many ways, the messages of Rich Dad Poor Dad, messages that were criticized and challenged two decades ago, are more meaningful, relevant and important today than they were 20 years ago.
As always, readers can expect that Robert will be candid, insightful... and continue to rock more than a few boats in his retrospective.
Will there be a few surprises? Count on it.

Whether we're big or small, it can be hard to get away from our screens. Most children spend between five and seven hours a day looking at some form of screen - and most grown-ups spend twice as much time. Screens promise endless entertainment, but the more time we spend with them, the more we lose sight of all that is strange, fascinating and delightful in the world around us. Even when we're stuck indoors, there are infinite possibilities for banishing boredom and having fun so long as we use our imagination. All we need are a few helpful suggestions.... No-tech Fun contains 80 of the weirdest and most wonderful activities children can do at home , all without using a screen. Rather than scrolling or tapping, you'll be invited to draw, make, write, invent, dress up, hide, seek and discover. You can paint like Picasso or meditate like Buddha; become an indoor entomologist or a home Olympian; make up a new language or a mythical creature; and even find the fun in some household chores. Inventive and irreverent, this book is the perfect companion for humdrum days and wet weekends. It is a compendium of the world's strangest, silliest and most stimulating activities.
In this age of screens much is discussed about how even 5 minutes of time a day outside can considerably enhance a child's emotional and physical wellbeing. With that in mind, this book looks to enhance this time spent outside and show children how nature can be fun, uplifting, consoling and even offer companionship. This is a book about how nature can touch us all and help us with our lives (especially when we might be feeling bored, sad or lonely). Children learn about the ways in which they can come to love and be inspired by varied examples of nature like: - a flowing river - a cow in a field - clouds in the sky - rabbits in their burrows - stars at night - or a cuddle with a favourite puppy. This is an inspirational book, not just educating children about the natural world, but teaching them to love and connect with it. Beautiful illustrations and a tone that is encouraging, warm and accessible makes it easy for children, and their favourite adults, to relate to.
Their bellies may stretch their spandex beyond saving and their capes
may only fly after a large ominous-sounding fart, but - make no mistake
- dads are superheroes. Well, half the time, at least. Because, let's
not forget, when it comes to cocking things up, dads are also
incredibly self-sufficient. Ignored by mums everywhere and taken
advantage by babies of all ages, being a dad is arguably the world's
toughest job (after motherhood, of course). Overworked, underpaid and
constantly in need of feeding, dads deserve just as
much attention, validation and an equal share of the duvet as
mums, and yet often have to settle for second best. From taxi-ing
teenagers to funding fun, juggling jobs to half-arsing house chores,
dads simply are the best. Even at their hungover worst.

A mother of small children trusts her 'gut feelings' and it saves her
Die eerste drie jaar van 'n kind se lewe is verreweg die belangrikste onwikkelingsjare omdat dit grondliggend is aan alle verdere ontwikkeling. Hierdie titel fokus op stimulering gedurende hierdie kritieke tydperk, en dek onder andere die volgende: Die leerproses volgens jou kind se potensiaal; 'n Stimulerende omgewing; brein-, sensoriese en motoriese ontwikkeling; liggaamsbeeld en selfbeeld; die ontwikkeling van spel; spraak- en taalontwikkeling; perseptuele en kognitiewe ontwikkeling; emosies; dissipline en probleemoplossing.
In hierdie boek gee Anne Cawood, ouerskapkenner en self 'n ouma van etlike kleinkinders, wyse raad aan grootouers wat hierdie wonderlike lewensfase betree of reeds daar is, met haar uitgebreide praktyknotas as basis. Oupas en oumas speel 'n geweldige groot rol in die lewens van die nuwe generasie - hulle eie kinders sowel as hulle kleinkinders s'n. Selfs in die hedendaagse wereld van tegnologiese ontwikkeling, oombliklike kommunikasie en blitsreise, is daar eenvoudig niks wat die sorg, liefde en ondersteuning van die uitgebreide gesin kan vervang in die lewensiklus waar grootouers die allerbelangrike skakel tussen die verlede en die toekoms vergestalt nie. Hierdie boek is gemik op alle grootouers, of enigiemand wat hierdie uiters belangrike rol in 'n kind se lewe vervul. Dit bied leiding en ondersteuning om grootouers insig te gee in die lewens van kinders in die 21ste eeu, en bevat talle wenke en inligting oor waardevolle vaardighede en positiewe strategiee om hulle kleinkinders te hanteer en geniet. So kan hulle steeds betekenisvolle lewens lei wat aan hul eie behoeftes voldoen, en hulle welverdiende vryheid en onafhanklikheid koester.
