Boys will be boys and girls will be girls - or so the meaningless saying goes. Because what if you're a girl and you like cage fighting? Or you're a boy and you love ballet?

This is the book for children who want to know about the lives of those heroes who have led the way, changing the world for the better as they go.

There is so much dietary advice out there, much of it conflicting, that it can be difficult for busy parents to make sense of it all.

The result, Superfood for Superchildren, challenges many ingrained dietary beliefs and advocates a real-food diet for children - from toddlers to teens - that is low in sugar and refined carbohydrates. Their advice is solidly underpinned by a critical, scientific interrogation of the the children's food industry.
By combining the latest peer-reviewed scientific evidence with straightforward, mouthwatering recipes, most of them for the whole family, Superfood for Superchildren shows clearly how to provide your children with the best possible nutrition to help them to grow up healthy and happy.
The good, the bad, and the lovely about having a sibling. Little sisters and little brothers all long for the same few things when it comes to their older siblings: a turn to play, a place on the team, a chance to shine. This book starts with four pairs of siblings in and around an apartment complex, each expressing through play and daily life the many gripes and pitfalls of younger siblings. Subtly, the narrative shifts to reflect the good things that come with having an older sibling: a helping hand, a partner in crime, a friend for life. The book ends on a high note - when it comes to brothers and sisters, the good outweighs the bad, and both big and little siblings have a special place in each others' hearts. Minimal text paired with impressionistic, full-spread illustrations creates weight and emotion in this lovely book that will help kids feel understood in all the pains and joys of siblinghood.
