Now the multi-Michelin-starred chef goes back to basics and rediscovers the pleasures of preparing simple, locally sourced, natural food for children, from ages 6 months to 3 years. The simple yet delicious dishes included here highlight a range of flavor combinations in which vegetables, fruits, and grains take pride of place, while animal protein is used sparingly. Ducasse casts aside preconceived notions of baby food to reveal that its essence should be composed of the same essential ingredients used in food for adults-locally sourced, seasonal produce and fresh flavors based on a simplified repertoire of recipes without the additives and preservatives found in commercial baby food. Charts, sidebars, and asides containing useful snippets of Ducasse's experience and nutritionist Paule Neyrat's advice are peppered throughout the charmingly illustrated recipes, making for a book that is both useful and beautiful for every parent wishing to start their children out with good eating habits.

Updated for the 21st century, How to Speak Politely and Why is a picture book with a point: proper speech and good grammar without nagging. It aims to remove "ain't" and "uh-huh" and "gimme" and "got" and a score of unfortunate nuances by a simple, sure painless and humorous process. In his signature style of amusing stick figure drawings and captions, Leaf makes clear such things as the difference between can and may, and the reason why one does not say "he done it" or "she come."Exasperated parents (and grandparents) faced with the unpleasant task of dealing with grammatical lapses acquired by their children from (gasp!) their neighbor's children will be delighted (and relieved) by this veritable "grammar without tears." Teachers will find it an indispensable ally, and even the culprits themselves--the children--will discover that learning to speak politely and correctly isn't such a chore after all.
