Praise for Overloaded and Underprepared Parents, teachers, and administrators are all concerned that America s kids are stressed out, checked out, or both but many have no idea where to begin when it comes to solving the problem. That s why the work of Challenge Success is so urgent. It has created a model for creating change in our schools that is based on research and solid foundational principles like communication, creativity, and compassion. If your community wants to build better schools and a brighter future, this book is the place to start. Daniel H.

Filled with practical suggestions and exercises that can be implemented easily, as well as advice on how to approach long-term change, Overloaded and Underprepared is a clear and compelling roadmap for teachers, school administrators and parents who believe that we owe our children a better education.

Big Kids Coloring Book: Fairy Houses and Fairy Doors: Single Sided for Wet Media – Markers and Paints (Big Kids Coloring Books)

Product rating: 5.0 with 2 reviews


Coloring books will never lose their appeal – whether you are a pre-kindergarten toddler to the mature adult who is looking for something simple to play with for a solitary pursuit that provides artistic pleasure. This coloring book has an intensity of design in the illustrations of Fairy Houses and Doors, that allows the reader (and budding artist) to chose their favorite coloring illustration, and then use colored pencils, markers, acrylics, paints, or even crayons to add their own brilliant color combinations.
Coloring can be cathartic for those needing something that doesn’t take a lot of analysis or thought, while allowing them to pick and chose their personal colors to create an artistic masterpiece. The pages of delightful Fairy abodes allows relaxation while you wile away the hours or the day in your own mind.
There is no judgment here. Have fun. Use the baseline designs and sketches to play and have fun. If there are blank spaces, along the borders or inside the design, add your own lines and patterns.
