If you are considering this book, you already know how important it is for your child to get a good start in learning math. This book will assist you in teaching your child fundamental number concepts at an early age. Given the importance of early learning, Marshmallow Math begins with number concepts that young children can master before they learn to read and write numbers. The book follows a natural progression of skills that begins with simple counting. Addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and other mathematical concepts are introduced gradually with each new skill building upon mastered skills. The book also explores other important concepts including sorting and comparing, telling time, spatial awareness, pattern recognition, geometry, measurement, and reasoning. Marshmallow Math provides many quick, simple, and fun activities for you and your child to do together. Hands on learning and mental math are emphasized over written work and traditional exercises. Many of the activities involve the use of counting objects such as marshmallows, pennies, or jellybeans. Having physical objects to look at, pickup, and count helps to make abstract concepts more real for your child. The unique approach set out in Marshmallow Math will help to ensure that your child truly comprehends fundamental number concepts and masters basic math skills. This will give your child both the ability and the confidence to excel in math.

Perfect for anyone in transition, this book explains how to apply the principles of success to changing circumstances. In our go-go culture, "wait" has become the most offensive of four-letter words, but patience is not the same as self-sacrifice, and holding out for something you really want is far more satisfying than settling for whatever is available.

Join bestselling author Sheila Roberts for the holidays in Icicle Falls, where life’s full of surprises, and happiness is just around the corner! Together for the first time in one box set, all the Christmas stories from her popular Life in Icicle Falls series: Merry Ex-Mas Cass Wilkes, owner of the Gingerbread Haus bakery, was looking forward to her daughter Danielle’s wedding—until Dani announced that she wants her father, Cass’s ex, to walk her down the aisle. Her friend Charlene Albach arrives at their weekly chick-flick night in shock. She’s just seen the ghost of Christmas past: her ex-husband, Richard, who left a year ago when he ran off with the hostess from her restaurant, Zelda’s. Now the hostess is history and he wants to kiss and make up. Hide the mistletoe! And bring out the hot buttered rum, because the holidays aren’t easy for Ella O’Brien, either. Ella, newly divorced, is still sharing the house with her ex while they wait for the place to sell. The love is gone. Isn’t it? But watch as Christmas brings all kinds of surprises…. Originally published in 2013 Christmas on Candy Cane Lane Everyone’s getting ready for Christmas in Icicle Falls, especially on Candy Cane Lane, where holiday decorating is taken very seriously. But this year, someone’s destroying the precious decorations! Thank goodness for the cop in their neighborhood. And while some town residents are excited to host their families for the holidays, others can sum up the holiday in two words: Bah, humbug. But despite family disasters, irritating ex-husbands and kitchen catastrophes, three women are going to find out that Christmas really is the most wonderful time of the year! Originally published in 2015 Christmas in Icicle Falls When Muriel Sterling released her new book, A Guide to Happy Holidays, she felt like the queen of Christmas. She’s thrilled when the new tree she ordered online arrives and is eager to show it off—until she gets it out of the box and realizes it’s a mangy dud. But rather than give up on the ugly tree, Muriel decides to make a project out of it. As she pretties up her tree, she realizes there’s a lesson to be learned: everything and everyone has potential. Maybe even her old friend Arnie, who’s loved her for years. Except, she’s not the only one seeing Arnie’s potential… Meanwhile, Muriel’s ugly-tree project has also inspired her friends. Sienna Moreno is trying to bring out the best in the grouchy man next door, who hates noise, hates kids and hates his new neighbors. And while Olivia Claussen would love to send her obnoxious new daughter-in-law packing, she’s adjusting her attitude and trying to discover what her son sees in the girl. If these women can learn to see the beauty in the “ugly trees” in their lives, perhaps this might turn out to be the happiest holiday yet. Originally published in 2018

WATERSTONES NON-FICTION BOOK OF THE MONTH A child is presented with a marshmallow and given a choice: Eat this one now, or wait and enjoy two later. What will she do? And what are the implications for her behaviour later in life? 'A book that can show you how to change your behaviour . . . explores human nature, neuroscience and genetics, enlivened by a sprinkling of anecdotes' Evening Standard 'A genial, optimistic book and a rather soothing read' The Sunday Times 'A brilliant book' Daniel Kahneman, author of Thinking, Fast and Slow Walter Mischel’s now iconic 'marshmallow test,' one of the most famous experiments in the history of psychology, proved that the ability to delay gratification is critical to living a successful and fulfilling life: self-control not only predicts higher marks in school, better social and cognitive functioning, and a greater sense of self-worth; it also helps us manage stress, pursue goals more effectively, and cope with painful emotions. But is willpower prewired, or can it be taught? In his groundbreaking new book, Dr. Mischel draws on decades of compelling research and life examples to explore the nature of willpower, identifying the cognitive skills and mental mechanisms that enable it and showing how these can be applied to challenges in everyday life--from weight control to quitting smoking, overcoming heartbreak, making major decisions, and planning for retirement. With profound implications for the choices we make in parenting, education, public policy and self-care, The Marshmallow Test will change the way we think about who we are and what we can be. And since, as Mischel argues, a life with too much self-control can be as unfulfilling as one with too little, this book will also teach you when it’s time to ring the bell and enjoy that marshmallow.
