Potentially Catastrophic SciencePotentially Catastrophic Science: It's never been more important to engage a child's scientific curiosity, and Sean Connolly knows just how to do it - with lively, hands-on, seemingly "dangerous" experiments that pop, ooze, crash, and teach! Now, the author of The Book of Totally Irresponsible Science, takes it one step further: He leads kids through the history of science, and then creates amazing yet simple experiments that demonstrate key scientific principles.

Tame fire just like a Neanderthal with the Fahrenheit 451 experiment. Round up all your friends and track the spread of "disease" using body glitter with an experiment inspired by Edward Jenner, the vaccination pioneer who's credited with saving more lives than any other person in history. Rediscover the wheel and axle with the ancient Sumerians, and perform an astounding experiment demonstrating the theory of angular momentum. Build a simple telescope (just like Galileo's) and find the four moons he discovered orbiting Jupiter (an act that helped land him in prison). Take a less potentially catastrophic approach to electricity than Ben Franklin did with the Lightning Mouth experiment. Re-create the Hadron Collider in a microwave with marshmallows, calculator, and a ruler - it won't jeopardize Earth with a simulated Big Bang, but will demonstrate the speed of light. And it's tasty!

With a smart mouth and a swagger to match, Michael Tayler is a problem for Jenna from the very first day. His school record screams troublemaker, and Jenna wonders if the new year is already doomed. But when she reads Michael’s first poetry assignment, she recognizes it for what it truly is: a cry for help. Michael’s presence sets into motion a chain of events that turns Jenna’s perfect life upside-down and threatens to destroy her career. Faced with a challenge unlike anything she’s ever known, Jenna commits to doing what no one has done for Michael Tayler before.

Celebrate! Songs for American Holidays - Recipient of multiple Adding Wisdom Awards and The National Parenting Center "Seal of Approval", this CD sets a new standard in educational songs. Performed by top Los Angeles musicians and produced by award-winning composer Richard Geere, these songs make holiday projects or presentations all the more special. Children singing these well-crafted songs can learn about Martin Luther King Jr., Mount Rushmore (Presidents' Day), Old Glory and more - including fun, catchy songs for Valentine's and Mother's Day.

Producer Richard Geere worked closely with experienced teachers to find songs that they needed but could not find. The result was "Celebrate!" which has subsequently been endorsed by teachers, parents, organizations and - most importantly - children across the country. A timeless album that you will use throughout the year. Buy it on Amazon!

 

 

Music of the Masters vol. 1 "Soothing Classics" - Another multi-award winning CD by producer Richard Geere. The album stems from his belief that "there's so much wonderful music in the classical world that remains largely undiscovered by many children. Their fresh, impressionable ears deserve some quality music - not just rock, rap & pop."

This widely acclaimed album features relaxing music by 12 of the world's greatest composers. Parents of young children use it for lullabies, teachers use it during quiet time or art classes and even teenagers use it when studying! GeereMusic Inc. received a sponsorship to reduce the price in an effort to make it more affordable. So go ahead - give your children some quality music. See details here.

Scene It? Deluxe Disney 2nd Edition

The popular board game that has players watching video clips and shouting out answers is now available in an upgraded Disney theme. This second edition of Screen life's Scene It? Disney game is chock full of questions, characters, and clips from both new and classic films from the family-friendly giant. >From older films like Alice in Wonderland and The Little Mermaid to new favorites such as The Incredibles and Ratatouille, the game asks questions about unforgettable characters, songs, and scenes.

Pop the game�s DVD into your player to start the magic and mayhem. Loaded with new clips and puzzles, this updated version touches on elephants that fly to cursed pirates and all things in between. There are over 1,000 questions on the 160 trivia cards, so even if you see the same snippet from the 180 on the DVD during the same game, the question about that scene will be different. Special technology randomizes the order of the clips to ensure fresh fun each time the game is played.

The themed, interactive game board can be spread out for longer games, or folded when you don�t have a lot of time (or players). To help you move around the board there are four metal player tokens (Nemo, Ariel, Tinkerbell, and Lightning McQueen), one six-sided die to determine how many spaces to move, and one eight-sided die that determines the category to be played. Once the dice have been rolled, clips are watched, questions are asked, and it�s revealed just how much you know. Use observation, memory, wordplay, and puzzle-solving to answer various challenges about the imaginative characters, celebrated songs, and timeless storytelling you see on-screen. Categories range from Take Three and Songs to Mousellaneous and more.

Not a longtime watcher of Disney and Pixar films? Don�t worry. This game is easy enough to learn and fun enough to play even for those who are not overly familiar with the plots. The trivia cards include questions for adults with separate ones for children, and some questions can be answered simply by paying close attention to the movie clips. There are also 30 Buzz cards available to help (or occasionally hinder) your progress. If these reasons aren�t enough to tempt you into a game on your own, then co-captain the Black Pearl with a friend or family member and play a few rounds in team mode first.

There are hundreds of animated clues on the DVD, and the game offers two play levels. When younger children are included, level one uses classic Disney animation. Level two features more recent Disney movies as well as Pixar animation for an added challenge. Also on the DVD are live action clips and snippets of animated movies for total family enjoyment.

About this game:

The curse of the Ruby Rhino dates back to the 16th century when King Maximus Gluttonus IV stole the jewel from the tomb of the great Pharaoh Andaway in a desperate attempt to find a belated anniversary gift for his wife, Queen Beatrice. Little did the king know that the Pharaoh placed a curse on the rhino so that anyone who took it would have all of their riches turned into worthless counterfeits. Disgraced by the curse (and abandoned by the queen), the penniless king eventually buried the Ruby Rhino along with his fake fortune in a secret cavern that was recently unearthed by brave adventurers. Little did they know that there is a simple way to break the curse...
