Award-Winning Children's book — Nanit Plus Camera

Nanit Plus Camera

Nanit is the first baby-safe video monitor that can measure sleep — without a wearable device. Nanit, which has been featured on the TODAY Show, Fortune, BabyCenter, Forbes, and more, is the most advanced baby monitor ever created, using cutting-edge computer vision technology to deliver scientifically-backed insights designed to help babies and entire families sleep better.

Nanit’s founders worked in conjunction with doctors and sleep experts to determine the most important metrics to track using their technology. Not only does Nanit provide a high-resolution bird’s eye view of the crib, but its advanced camera sensors can actually measure and differentiate behaviors, distinguishing even the slightest changes (i.e. whether your baby is asleep or simply lying peacefully awake). What’s more, Nanit is the first and only monitor on the market that provides sleep insights, behavioral analysis, parenting tips, social sharing capabilities and nightly video summaries — all WITHOUT a wearable component.

Living in the Family Blender: 10 Principles of a Successful Blended Family
Written by Clark Rich Burbidge, Leah Dee Burbidge; Illustrated by Cover Design: Robin Black: Inspirio Design
Cover Illustrations: Karl C. Hepworth; Edited by Barbara J. Scott

Blended family issues impact the vast majority of Americans. Yet, even so, society often sidesteps the topic, while literature leaves a bleak landscape nearly void of practical advice from those who have lived in the trenches.

With over 68 combined years of direct blended family experience, including 14 years with their own family of 10 children, authors Clark and Leah Burbidge are uniquely qualified to fill this void. Their combined ‘Autobiographical/How-To’ guidebook weaves a humorous, tender, uplifting, and critically insightful fabric of 10 foundational principles upon which any family may confidently build.

Living in the Family Blender provides practical guidance upon which any family may build better relationships and a life filled with joy and purpose. Join them on their personal journey and discover glorious possibilities in your own family.

It’s Raining … Paisley Pancakes: (Book w/ Imagination Card Deck)
Written by Kim Maguire; Illustrated by Josie Yee

Can the children in It’s Raining…Paisley Pancakes really make a machine, or a thingamajig as Rosie calls it, to make it rain pancakes? And not just any pancakes, because anybody might be able to do that, but paisley pancakes. With the help of their cousins, Charlie and Rosie do, but there is a problem. It seems like they forgot to add a “stop” button on the machine. As the pancakes fall from the sky faster and faster and fill the neighborhood, how will they stop this, or can they? Who can they call before they are in serious pancake trouble?

This book is adorably illustrated and encourages our children to use their imagination and creativity. Brimming with ingenious quotes from brilliant people, you will be inspired to spark your child’s imagination.
