Here are three books from DK Canada that will help children build exciting computer projects, including games, music, and designs on the computer, or learn to draw, or do science experiments.

The Role of Hydration in our Day-to-Day Activities and Fitness Routine

We have all heard how important water is for our bodies since we were little, but I am sure despite knowing the positive influence of water for our bodily functions, we don't pay as much attention as we should to how much water we in-take.  In our family, we have come to a mutual agreement that water makes us feel better, helps prevent headaches and keeps our mood positive. Since we started monitoring our hydration levels, we've found that water is the best source of hydration throughout the day, and it makes a big difference in our lives.

Have you ever cheated on your binge-partner after agreeing to watch the shows together? While we would not want to always admit, I am sure many of us have occasionally cheated and watched an episode, two or all of the shows without waiting for our binge-partner. This has definitely happened in our home between the adults and children on more than one occasion!
