I get products sent to me daily to try out. I unfortunately don’t have time to do a post for each item that I get to review. So I want to make sure these items get seen and learned about. The only other solution I could see to do is to do a November’s DVD and Book Product Roundup 2018 on the products I like and want my readers to know about. I hope you enjoy these as much as I and my other reviewers did.
It’s up, up and away as Elmo, Abby, and friends take to the skies above Sesame Street in colorful hot-air balloons in this exciting special. When a playful bird, voiced by Elizabeth Banks, snatches Abby’s magic wand, the pleasant ride becomes a high-stakes adventure through the streets of New York City. Between making new friends and learning about different cultures, our heroes must recover the wand in order to return home to Sesame Street!
When Abby and the gang visit new neighborhoods throughout The Magical Wand Chase, they discover new foods, music, and languages. Best of all, they make new friends who help them on their quest to find the missing wand. The Magical Wand Chase is deeply connected to Sesame Street’s mutual respect and understanding curriculum, using the tapestry of the city to show kids that kindness is universal and new friends can be found anywhere.
Bonus features include the full-length feature Elmo’s Alphabet Challenge and another exciting adventure, the full-length episode The Golden Triangle of Destiny.

While growing up has never been easy, today’s world undeniably presents kids and their parents with unprecedented challenges. The upside, cites Maureen Healy, is a widespread acknowledgment that emotional health, resilience, and equilibrium can be learned and strengthened. Healy, who was a “wild child,” the kind, she writes who left babysitters “wondering if they wanted children” knows her subject. She has become an expert on teaching skills that address the high sensitivity, big emotions, and hyper energy she herself experienced. Three simple steps are key ― Stop, Calm, and Make a Smart Choice. While not always easy, these steps are powerful and Healy shows readers exactly how to implement them. Children move from acting out or shutting down, experiencing frequent physical symptoms such as head and stomach aches or hurting themselves or others, to recognizing they are being triggered, feeling their emotions, and using strategies to respond from a calmer place. As adults learn to model these skills, both adults and children become freer to do and be their best.
