Hi Everyone,

With the Christmas Holiday approaching, I begin to hear the insistent beat of reindeer hooves on my roof.... OK, just kidding. In this busy holiday season, your email inbox  (not to mention your plate) will be overflowing. So,  I have decided to give you a break, while also giving myself a break as a publisher. Therefore, this issue will be the last issue of the year 2003 (i.e. no issue on Dec 26). I'll be back on the regular publishing schedule next year! 

If you want to donate to a very good cause this Christmas,  I would suggest you to take a serious look at "The 3rd Annual Internet Toy Drive". They haven't nearly as many toys as they need for all of the children participating, so please see how you can help at Internet Toy Drive. Alternatively, you can choose to help the Orphans at Aid For Orphans

Have a great holiday!

Einstein Never Used Flash Cards
By Dr. Roberta Michnick Golinkoff, Dr. Kathy Hirsh-Pasek
Average Customer Review - 5 Stars

Parents are told that we have the power to make our children smarter by playing certain music, or buying specific toys, or signing them up for special activities. Unfortunately, in our quest to help our kids be successful, we are running ourselves - and our kids - ragged. 

Psychologist Kathy Hirsh-Pasek has some good news for exhausted parents: allowing your kids free time to play may be the best thing you'll ever do for them. With Roberta Michnick Golinkoff, she has written a book called, "Einstein Never Used Flash Cards: How our Children REALLY Learn - And Why They Need to Play More and Memorize Less."
