Book Review: Leo SuperHero - A Sunday Morning Adventure




This world sure is a lot different than when I was a kid. With social media all around us it seems harder to teach our little ones core values like selflessness and kindness.

I recently had the opportunity to read Leo SuperHero - A Sunday Morning Adventure  by The Brothers, a publishing company that was started by two married fathers.

I like this book because it shows that two dads want to teach their sons to be caring, helpful and how to solve problems. What great qualities to pass on to their children!!


The story is about a little boy named Leo who is woken up in the middle of the night by his cat. They embark on an adventure to help a lost little mouse return to him home.

With colorful illustrations and simple wording. This book is not only great for toddlers but also those learning to read.

Also available in Spanish and French!! 

    


From the Author

One night  while covering my kids to go to sleep, he asked me how can he become a superhero. 
I answer him the a superhero is not someone that climb on building (like spider man) or saving the world. A superhero can be even someone that make a good deed....
The same night I sat down and started to write this story. I created Leo, his sister and even milkshake in a away that every kid can say "Wowow.." he is a really superhero.
Enjoy.


About the Author

The Brothers is a publishing company that was established by two married fathers of young children.
"As parents we have encountered quite a few questions and our children's thirst for knowledge and their need to receive answers to their questions - right here and right now. We have put our experience in inventing stories and storytelling to use. We pour heaps of imagination into our stories and most importantly we provide the children with the correct tools to deal with the day-to-day issues of the world. This is the reason that we write these books, we want the children, ours and yours, to explore, to be able to cope and to make use of knowledge, tools and wisdom to solve problems and cope in our world."



Happy story time!

Book Review: Terry Treetop Finds New Friends

So, several months back I gave in and treated myself to a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition (16GB, White) and I'm loving all the Kindle Books I'm downloading not just for me but also my daughter and the toddlers I watch. We have a great time being able read so many different titles without making a huge mess by the bookshelf...

I used to let them pick their own books. Ranging from the ages 19 mo - 2.5 yrs old they tend to drop the ones they don't like on the floor.



But, I digress. The most recent book we read was Terry Treetop Finds New Friends. It is another cute book Tali Carmi featuring lots of animals, life lessons, and of course Terry Treetop.

Having read her previous book, Terry Treetop and the Lost Egg, they were familiar with the main character and colorful pictures. Being the cat lover my daughter is, she especially liked the kitty and her role in the story. 

We definitely enjoyed this little book and have already read it several times. We look forward to seeing what Tali will be writing next.

Warby Parker...How they're made



**This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links

Have you ever wondered how fellow socially-conscious company, Warby Parker glasses are made? How can they make such amazing designer frames and sell for such a low price? Well, just read on to find out exactly how your frames are made.
  • Inspiration & Perspiration
    The Warby Parker in-house design team gathers inspiration from around the globe. Then each frame is designed in-house from initial sketch to prototype testing to final design.
  • Innovation
    The Warby Parker designers cook up custom pattern variations and features, like their never-before-seen triple-gradient lenses
  • Sightseeing
    The Warby Parker lenses are impact-resistant and UV 400 protected. All optical lenses include super hydrophobic anti-reflective and anti-scratch coatings.
  • Materials (only the good stuff)
    From premium Japanese titanium to custom single-sheet cellulose acetate sourced from a family-run Italian factory, they only use the best materials.
  • Construction Work
    Acetate frames are hand-polished and tumbled for at least three days. An imported German polishing wax compound helps to achieve the highest shine.
  • Off they go! All frames are inspected at least twice before finding their way to you.

By circumventing traditional channels, designing glasses in-house, and engaging with customers directly, Warby Parker is able to provide higher-quality, better-looking eyewear at a fraction of the going price. Check out their Fall 2014 Collection - nine new shapes, two new colors. A little something for everyone.
