Our children are experiencing a serious health crisis. If we do not get educated about it and facilitate change it is estimated that our children will not even live to the current lifespan of adults today. In fact, cancer, diabetes, asthma, obesity, ADHD and degenerative diseases are more prevalent than ever. One in four children is obese and nearly 50% of children who remain obese as adolescents continue the trend as adults (Int'l Journal of Obesity 1999 & Pediatrics, 1998). By age 3, children have fatty deposits in their arteries and by age twelve, 70% have developed beginning stages of hardening of the arteries (Bogalusa Heart Study NHLBI, 2002). More than 8 million children have asthma. This statistic has increased 232% over the last 40 years (Archives of Pediatric/Adolescent Medicine, 2000) and 25% of all 12 year olds have higher than normal blood pressure (Berenson, 2004) Did you know that less than 7% of all school age kids get the recommended 2 servings of fruits and 3 servings of vegetables per day? (Archives of Pediatric/ Adolescent medicine, 1996). If ketchup and French fries were not considered the figure would be even less.

So, you're curious. You are on the road to becoming a young adult and it can be a bumpy ride. Your body and your thinking are changing. No doubt you have some questions about the process. I asked kids and their parents what they would like to know more about. Those questions turned into topics, which ultimately turned into this book. Birth of a Teenager: an owner's manual addresses subjects like body image, nutrition, hormones, vegetarianism, skin care and a whole lot more. Crack it open, you just might get YOUR questions answered. About Corie Goodson Having earned her Master's in Public Health in 1993, Corie has worked as a community health educator, teacher, and wellness speaker for over a decade. She has worked with kids and teens since the 1970's and has seen first hand how negative health trends have affected them into adulthood. "The media bombards us with over 40,000 negative health messages annually and it is having a profound effect on our youth. There's so much confusing information out there. It's enough to drive kids and their parents crazy." Corie's mission is to educate kids and adults alike so that they can make more informed decisions regarding their health, despite the media hype. "I want kids to be more secure in their knowledge so that when misinformation comes their way, they can ask better questions." Education has the power to change the future and small consistent changes in lifestyle can add up to big results over time. Change isn't always easy, but it is worth it if it tips the scale in the right direction and can offer a brighter future.

Every year, 6 million companies and more than 100,000 products are launched. They all need an awesome name, but many (such as Xobni, Svbtle, and Doostang) look like the results of a drunken Scrabble game. In this entertaining and engaging book, ace naming consultant Alexandra Watkins explains how anyone—even noncreative types—can create memorable and buzz-worthy brand names. No degree in linguistics required. The heart of the book is Watkins's proven SMILE and SCRATCH Test—two acronyms for what makes or breaks a name. She also provides up-to-date advice, like how to make sure that Siri spells your name correctly and how to nab an available domain name. And you'll see dozens of examples—the good, the bad, and the “so bad she gave them an award.” Alexandra Watkins is not afraid to name names.

“A briliant multicultual collection that reminds readers that stories about food are rarely just about the food alone.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review) A stunning collection of short stories about the intersection of family, culture, and food in the lives in teens, from bestselling and critically acclaimed authors, including Sandhya Menon, Anna-Marie McLemore, and Rin Chupeco. A shy teenager attempts to express how she really feels through the pastries she makes at her family’s pasteleria. A tourist from Montenegro desperately seeks a magic soup dumpling that can cure his fear of death. An aspiring chef realizes that butter and soul are the key ingredients to win a cooking competition that could win him the money to save his mother’s life. Welcome to Hungry Hearts Row, where the answers to most of life’s hard questions are kneaded, rolled, baked. Where a typical greeting is, “Have you had anything to eat?” Where magic and food and love are sometimes one in the same. Told in interconnected short stories, Hungry Hearts explores the many meanings food can take on beyond mere nourishment. It can symbolize love and despair, family and culture, belonging and home.
