Marty's Nut Free Party

Marty is a small monkey who loves to party. He is the first to arrive at a party and the last to leave.

To Marty's disgust and distress, he discovers that he is really allergic to peanuts, so allergic to them that he ends up in hospital - several times.
He discovers that if he eats a lot of peanuts, only one peanut, or a cake that used to have peanuts on it, he still ends up in hospital.
What can be done? Not going to parties can't possibly be the solution.
When it's Marty's birthday party, he has a no nut party. What a great idea. Marty waits anxiously to see if his friends will like his style of party. They love it and decided that they would all have their parties without nuts from now on.
A party just isn't the same without Marty.
This book is a 'must have' item. It's a great book for children who are anaphylactic, and also a wonderful tool for helping children who don't have any allergies to understand what it is like for those people who do have them.

A Moving Child is a Learning Child: How the Body Teaches the Brain to Think (Birth to Age 7)

By Gill Connell and Cheryl McCarthy
Just as kids’ bodies need specific nutrients for good health, they also need a balanced diet of physical activity to help them reach their potential. This book explains the learning link between the body and the brain and what early childhood educators, parents and caregivers can do to guide it. Writing in a down-to-earth style accompanied by lively colour photographs, the authors reveal the truths behind children’s movement and unveil the Kinetic Scale: a visual map of the active learning needs—such as balance, coordination, and control—of infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and primary children (from “snugglers” to “skedaddlers”). Throughout are actionable tips and activities that will keep kids moving, growing, and learning. Digital content includes parent handouts and customizable forms.
