Peter Pauper Press is one of America’s leading publishers of fine gift books, unique journals, quality stationery, and innovative children’s activity books. They publish approximately 100 books and ancillary products per year. With kids headed back to school we felt that we needed to share some back to school must haves to help kids stay organized. Student Planner 2017-2018 While a planner is beneficial for students from elementary school through college, we find the Student Planner 2017-2018 from Peter Pauper Press, Inc. to be very beneficial to to high school students as well as college students, when organization skills are vital to success. I love the weekly spread, which includes spaces for scheduling notes and to-do lists. The monthly spreads give students a bigger-picture view of their academic year — perfect for planning long-term assignments and far-off events! The planner also includes study tips and charts for assignment mapping. The assignment schedule is a really nice addition to the book, which I have not seen in other planners. Be sure to pick up some weekly planner stickers to go along with your student planner. INTERNET ADDRESS & PASSWORD LOG BOOK Are you tired of losing track of those login/usernames and passwords you create every time you visit a new website? Now you can keep important website addresses, usernames, and passwords in one convenient place with a personal internet address and password logbook. There is plenty of room in the book for website addresses, username and passwords. In the back of the book there is space to record additional useful information, such as your home network configuration, software license numbers, and other notes. THIS WEEK’S MENU NOTE PAD For students headed off to college or university is a handy tool. The pad allows you to plan your menus for the week on the left side of this handy pad. You then write down the ingredients you need on the right side — it’s a separate, perforated shopping list to take to the store. This would also be handy for busy parents and could be used for school lunches. There are 60 sheets to last the school year and beyond. Importance of reading September 8 is National Literacy Day. Reading is a fundamental tool in every aspect of the word. It is one of the skills children must master to succeed, just not in school, but in life. Sadly, Statistics Canada reports that 48 percent of adults do not have the literacy skills to cope with everyday life. Starting in junior kindergarten, if a student reads 20 minutes a day at home, they will hear 1.8 million words per year. According to a reading report done by Scholastic Canada, the country’s largest distributor of children’s books and educational materials, children, particularly those who are frequent readers, gain inspiration (76%) and a sense of accomplishment (90%) from reading. My reading logbook Journal for kids How do you motivate a child though that doesn’t like reading? Many teachers use reading logs and rewards to encourage kids to read. This school year help your child keep track of their books and reading progress with this helpful reading logbook by Peter Pauper Press, Inc. This handy booklet will help your children to monitor which books they have read and which ones they are currently reading. Each page in the book features a enough space to record the date, the title of the book, the name of the author, start and end page numbers, and the number of minutes read. There is also a place for parents’ initials in the book. In the back of the book there is a section to add titles of books completed. Motivate Kids to Read Motivate your child to read by purchasing them children books that they will enjoy. Make sure the reading material isn’t beyond your child’s reading abilities. As parents we are key players in our child’s academic and personal well-being One of the most important things you can do to help your child succeed at school is to read to them at home. Spend 20 mins a night reading together. Not only does reading together stimulate brain development and increase language and communication skill for early readers, but it is a time for child and parent bonding. If your child is older and already reading, take turns reading to one another. My now adult son can be quoted for saying “Growing up as a kid I use to write “reading” in my agenda. It wasn’t always homework, but I put it there anyway. It was my favourite part of the evening because for 30 minutes I would get to spend time with the man who taught me to love books.” How do you encourage your kids to read? We’d love to hear some of your tricks. Do you have any other tips for staying organized as kids head back to school. We would love to hear about them in the comments.

If you like listening to music in your door room, but don’t want to disturb your roommate CozyPhones headphones are a fantastic option. CozyPhones are a combination headband and headphone product. We find that CozyPhones do a respectable job with regards to sound isolation. I was unable to hear what my husband was listening to through the earphones. The balance of sound is pretty great with a nice range of volume. When sleeping the ear speakers do shift a little, but not enough to be annoying. If you are a side sleeper, you won’t have to worry about them pressing against your ear when you sleep as the speakers are thin and flat. They’re also safe for use in bed, so you won’t get tangled in the wires if you toss and turn. CozyPhones come with a braided cable to prevent tangles. The CozyPhones have a great stretchy lycra shell with an interior of polyester that wicks away sweat. They also come with a lightweight travel bag and are compatible with most devices. Keep in mind that the headbands are non adjustable, so if you have a large head they may be a tad snug. The Lycra Mesh Cozyphones are available in black with 4 trim choices: black, blue, white or pink. Aside from sleeping, it is also apparent that these headphones would be perfect for runners and adults like my adult daughter who suffers from tinnitus. Cozyphones contour series version comes in black, grey or violet and features a cool mesh lining and contour design that helps the speakers to stay in place, even if you toss and turn. Cozyphones also have a models for kids, which are kid friendly looking. CozyPhones for kids CozyPhones for kids are the perfect alternative in headphones for kids who dislike earbuds and parents who struggle with bulky over the ear headphones. We recommend CozyPhones headphones for toddlers and preschoolers or children that have any sort of autism, or sensory disorder. When shopping for headphones for your kids, the safest option is a pair that limits the maximum volume. Medical professionals suggest children’s head sets not be set above 85 decibles (dB). CozyPhones headphones have a sound limit of 85 decibels. The sound pressure isn’t very loud, so it is safe for my daughter’s young ears. The headphones have a standard 3.5mm audio jack that fits my daughter’s Leapfrog LeapPad Platinum Kids Learning Tablet and her portable DVD player, therefore making them perfect for travel. CozyPhones have a long, soft wire that allows my daughter to move quite freely while wearing them. The fabric on the headband is super soft and the headphones come out of the headband for easy washing. The headbands have 2 opening at the very back inside of the band. Place your finger in and slide the ‘speaker,’ so they are at the right position for your child and then press down to secure. The headphones fit my daughter’s head perfectly (she’s four) and according to her they are comfortable. They stay in place, with no slipping and they don’t press on her ears or irritate her. They’re great to use around the house or when we’re traveling in the car. They are nice and compact, so I can easily store them in her tablet case. CozyPhones are certainly kid-friendly with their fun animal design. We own a cute panda, but there are also unicorns, foxes, monsters and frogs. Overall we love our CozyPhones and would highly recommend them to any parents looking for the perfect children’s headphones. CozyPhones headphones, are available in both kid and adult sizes.

With children returning to school next week there will be many children starting their first year of school. When a child starts school, reading becomes a primary way of learning. Personalized books, can be a fun way to get your child interested in reading. Fun personalized books such as the “If My Dog Could Talk” book from “I See Me” makes reading attractive and fun for young page-turners like my daughter. We recently added the “If My Dog Could Talk” personalized book to my daughter’s ever growing book collection. Ever wondered what your dog is saying when he gives you “that look”? If My Dog Could Talk is a rhyming storybook, which is narrated from the dog’s perspective. Company President and Co-Founder Maia Haag of I See Me is the author of this fun book. Customizing the book is super easy. Select among 12 dog styles to create the dog that most closely resembles your pet. There are 5 colors to choose from. The dog’s name and the names of up to four family member’s names can be included. You also have the option of adding two photos of your dog to the book. Like other books from I See Me! you can add a dedication to the book. My thoughts When choosing how I wanted Maxi to look in the book, I unfortunately didn’t see a Shihtzu dog style. I decided to choose a dog that resembled Maxi. I am still satisfied with the results even though technically he doesn’t quite resemble a Shihtzu. Once you are done personalizing everything, you are able to preview the book, which is a nice feature. My daughter absolutely loves all of the illustrations in the book, which include her name. The rhyming makes the story fun and our dog Maxi would say “why don’t you shake when you’re wet”, that’s if he could talk. My daughter delighted when she saw a photo of our dog Maxi and herself in the book. She also loves Maxi’s new bandana. If you order the gift set is includes a copy of the book, a personalized bandana for your dog and a dog food place-mat! We own a number of other personalized books from I See Me!, so I know that “If your dog really could talk” is a high quality book that will withstand years of use. Whether your kids are heading off to school for the very first time or are old pros at navigating the hallways, a personalized book is a great gift to start off a new school year. In addition to this personalized book for dogs, I See Me also offers other personalized children’s books, lunch boxes, coloring books, growth charts, stickers, and more!

A backpack is an essential part of back-to-school attire, and there are a number of factors to consider when choosing the right backpack for your child. Make sure the backpack you purchase your child isn’t too large. To ensure your child has a proper fitting backpack check that: The bottom of the pack does not sit more than 4 inches below their waistline. The point where the bag and the straps meet should be 1-2” below the tops of their shoulders. In addition, the weight of a backpack should not exceed 10% of your child’s own body weight. Kids want their backpacks to be trendy and fun, but of course as parents we want something that will be comfortable and offer enough support while being able to last them through the school year. Obersee Kids Backpacks boast a blend of creativity, functionality and style. The Obersee Kids PreSchool All-in-One Backpack with Cooler is one of the best selling backpacks on the market for back to school 2017. Looking for a kindergarten sized durable backpack for my daughter was what originally led me to Obersee, but the insulated outer pocket was the selling point for me. The bag features a front pocket that doubles as a lunch cooler, so I don’t need to purchase a separate lunch bag. While the bag is titled pre-school, I find the bag to be the perfect size for junior kindergarten, senior kindergarten and grade one. For ultimate comfort, the back features a padded breathable mesh lumbar section and the straps are constructed with the same padded breathable mesh. Two added bonuses that I love is the chest strap, which helps distribute the weight, and the side pocket which is perfect for carrying a water bottle. The interior of the main compartment features an organizer with pockets for supplies and slots for pen and pencil storage. My daughter loves the cool star design of her backpack, but Obersee Kids PreSchool All-in-One Backpack with Cooler also comes in 18 other cool designs.
