Can-Do Kids Series Books By Kayla J. W. Marnach

I enjoyed reading books especially when they teaches kids lessons in life. Kids can be spoiled when they did not learn any manners. The Can Do Kids Series by Ms. Kayla J. W. Marnach is a very fun but very helpful books for kids and parents as well.
The Can Do Kids series books are My Body's Mine, I Can Do That and My Actions Matter. My daughter and I both enjoyed reading these series. I am sure that you do too. We both rated all the books 5 *****'s.
The power to say no This is my favorite book from the I Can Do series. It is very helpful as always. The illustration is so fun. The series are very short read but your kids will enjoy reading them. They might be short but very informative not only for kids but parents as well. When situations happen, this book is the best for the kids to say no and of course with parents teaching too. Kids should learn at a young age especially when they go to school and places like park that is surrounded with strangers.
The best way to calm down This book is so helpful especially for kids that has tantrums. As a parent, sometimes it is frustrating when they have tantrums. I Can Do That is very helpful for both parents and kids. It is a very short book but very fun to read. I loved the illustrations too. I remember those days when my son had tantrums, this book is an amazing help.
Kindness and respect always goes together Kids nowadays are different when I was raised. Some needs to teach about respect. Luckily, I taught my kids about respect and being kind. There are times they forget those important manners and remind them. This book is another very informative from the series. I loved the suggestions on the last page. Those are very helpful. Kids need to learn respect at a very young age. Parents play a big role for that. You can grab these books in Amazon, Goodreads and Barnes and Noble. You can also follow Ms. Kayla J.W. Marnach in Facebook and Twitter for updates and news about her amazing writings.

Meet the Author:


Andrea has always been an avid reader and that jumpstarted her imagination at a very early age. In fact she escaped to the Land of Make Believe more often than her mother liked.

She is a former marketing professional who is a mom to kids both with and without fur. Andrea says that it helps to have one foot planted firmly in reality while the other is foot loose and fancy-free in Imagination Land. She enjoys the best of both worlds.

In 2013, Andrea and her husband started About Something Good (ASG) as a vehicle to curate, inspire and share goodness in the world. In a world where negative images flood the media, and words like “hate” get tossed around so easily, Andrea felt she needed a space that encouraged and focused on the words like “love” and the beauty that is life.

Andrea is committed to finding the good in everything and believes: that a sense of belonging to someone's heart is what makes us feel complete, that kindness goes a long way, and that keeping your mind and heart open can help when things happen that you don't understand.

Andrea lives in New Jersey with her husband and children.

Q: What are you trying to say with your book?

A: I’m trying to say it’s okay to love even if you have been hurt in the past, or things haven’t

gone exactly the way you planned.

Keep your heart open and let it lead the way. I’m telling people to look for reasons to love.
Pets, especially dogs, show us how love, forgiveness, and living in the moment make our lives richer.
I’m hoping this book highlights that.


Q: The book is also about loss and death. How did it feel to write about that?

A: I had started writing this book many years ago, and as the years went by,

Ralphie was getting older and I knew I would have to say goodbye.
I knew that there were many people like me who have dealt with loss like this in their own lives.
It helped when I remembered how Ralphie dealt with the loss of Skipper—the dog
we already had when we brought Ralphie home.
He was sad; we saw it in his body language. She was his leader and he looked up to her,
and suddenly she was gone.
I saw him grieve and get over it, and I never saw him being anything but loving to the rest of us,
who were also left behind. Now that Ralphie has passed too,
I’d like to think that he and Skipper are together again and that she is bossing him
around and taking care of him all at the same time!


Q: What did you do after Ralphie passed?

A: I cried and cried. I still do, even a year and a half later.

But now with this book and his memories, I’m helping keep his legacy alive.
Ralphie has an Instagram account (https://www.instagram.com/ralphiealwaysloved/)
that is still active, and through it he is keeping love and hope alive inside me and his friends
and followers as well. On the day we got his ashes back,
our family made a memory box filled with things that reminded us of him.
We told Ralphie stories and laughed and cried. We made donations to dog charities.
Now we look for heart-shaped clouds. The book starts with Ralphie in heaven, painting clouds,
and I believe that he is up there again sending us messages of love.
We’re always excited to see these special signs from Ralphie.


Q: The book is not just about loss, right?

A: Ralphie, Always Loved is primarily a book about love and hope.

It also touches on how faith weaves into the fabric of our lives.
This book also helps us focus on finding reasons to stay positive and hopeful, just as Ralphie did.
We need more books like it: books that encourage young readers to keep believing
and striving to find the good in each other. Those qualities are very much needed in today’s world.


Q: How does the book reflect who you are and what your values are?

A: Ralphie, Always Loved is based on a true story about my dog, who was abandoned

not once but three times before we got him. He was hyper and misunderstood.

He just needed patience, understanding, and redirection. My family and I did not give up on him,

and we were rewarded by an amazing and loving relationship that lasted sixteen years.

I guess it wasn’t just Ralphie who had hope; I did too.



Q: What do you most want to be known for?

A: I’d love to be known as a storyteller who makes people think of something positive in today’s world,

and who gives them a reason to want to be kind. I want to be a champion of underdogs everywhere

and to leave a legacy of love.

Please Explain Terrorism to Me: A Story for Children, P-E-A-R-L-S of Wisdom for Their Parents by Book By Laurie Zelinger and Ann Israeli



A Story for Children, P-E-A-R-L-S of Wisdom for their Parents 

Complemented by exquisite, colorful artwork, Dr. Zelinger skillfully crafts an easily relatable children's story using everyday situations, around the oppressive concept of Terrorism in the news. With masterful understanding of the child's world, new and frightening concepts are introduced carefully and gently, with the child's perspective in mind. Dr. Zelinger provides parent coaching to further the dialogue in her P-E-A-R-L-S of Wisdom section (Prepare, Explain, Answer, Reassure, Listen, Safeguard) where caregivers are given scripts to guide them, as well room for individuality. This pioneer book helps children and parents face a critical, often avoided topic with reassurance and calm.
"This book provides the 'PEARLS' of wisdom for parents and children to discuss a scary topic like terrorism in ways that promote healthy and authentic parent-child conversations that yield to mutual respect and bonding." 
--Marc A. Brackett, PhD., Director, Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence

"Deep and yet accessible, her remarkable deciphering of the psychological factors that hinder the free communication between parents and children on terrorism is compelling. This fascinating guide amounts to a riveting lesson of clarity and to a masterpiece in bridging the unbridgeable." 
--Hon. Yehuda Lancry, Former Ambassador of Israel to the U.N.

"Please Explain 'Terrorism' to Me is a straightforward and down-to-earth treatment of a difficult subject. Dr. Zelinger uses common sense, a simple clarification of the basic issues, and reassurance to provide a deeper understanding of terrorism for kids--without a corresponding rise in anxiety." 
--Thomas W. Phelan, Ph.D., Psychologist/Author,

I rated this book 5 *****;s

This book is a wide opening for kids and parents about terrorism. The illustrations are so beautiful which kids will love to learn more about this delicate topic. My son who is 14 years old is  afraid to fly because he is terrified that the plane will crash. The last time he flew was when he was two years old. 
 
The step by step guidelines are very important and will help the kids understand about the terrorism. I know that in schools, both my kids have drills if something will happen and keep them safe. 
 
This book is so educational and fun to read. Every parents should have this book in their bookshelves. I really recommend it.
