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!

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.

Like all good stories, Guy the Beagle’s begins lost in the woods of Kentucky. But his fortunes change when he’s rescued by none other than Princess…er, Duchess-to-be Meghan Markle. Practically overnight, Guy goes from wags to riches. But does this backwoods beagle have what it takes to be welcomed into the royal family?
For the first time ever, Guy reveals how he went from pawper to proper, with help from Emmy award-winning writer and producer of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Mike Brumm and publishing veteran (and devoted Anglophile) Camille March, beautifully illustrated by EG Keller (illustrator of the New York Times bestselling A Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo).

There’s trouble at the North Pole. With Faith and Hope at perilously low levels, it looks like Christmas may have to be cancelled this year. Now, Yuletide’s only chance lies with Jing Els and Hollee – the Glimmers – in THE GLIMMERS SAVE CHRISTMAS (On The Lamb Productions; October 2018), the third book in the series by award-winning writer Robert Agnello and illustrator Nick Meola.
The situation in Christmastown is grim. All the reindeer are sick with “can’tflyitis” and in the toy workroom, the other elves are feeling dim and weak. Despite the dismal outlook, Elf Extraordinaire Roger keeps working away, making presents for girls and boys all over the world so that Santa can deliver them on time. It’s his hope and faith that brings some unexpected assistance just in time to save Christmas.
Meet the Glimmers. Glimmers are tiny beings of light that make everything good glow. When we make bad choices, our Glimmer lights fade and turn into Dimmers, but when we start making good choices again, our Glimmers will glow all the brighter. Jing Els is a Glimmer of Hope and Hollee is a Glimmer of Faith. Roger’s certainty that Santa will deliver his presents to good little girls and boys, and working feverishly to get all the toys ready, makes Jing Els and Hollee shine brilliantly. Roger’s belief also enables them to recruit other Glimmers and help Santa’s sleigh fly once more. Together, the Glimmers show that the spirit of Christmas can glow brightly even in the darkest of times.
