Apples, strawberries, and cherries
are red, red, and red.
Wait! How can they be just "RED"
when they are different kinds of RED?
Colors are a treasure worthy to be displayed in a museum! And they are in the Color Story. So many colorful hues with their shades, tines, and tones have been collected most passionately by the most unlikely friends...Shapes! Yes, Shapes! These are the most endearing outlines of geometric shapes you will ever meet. They can run, walk, and touch. They can think and feel. And with their big, large eyes, they can behold everything, even the beauty of colors. But they have a problem. They have found themselves stuck with an ever-present question mark. What are their names?
An award-winning author of The Number Story series, Miss Anna is happy to unveil to you one of her favorites--The Color Story. And as you may have already expected, Miss Anna's book on colors is again far from the typical and the ordinary. She always presents a subject in a different light. A dollop of cozy sweetness and a sprinkling of witty charm are her signature flavor. The Color Story is all-of-the-above and truly one-of-kind. An educational-fiction written in verse and rhyme, the Color Story is sure to delight. And it is actually two stories in one, back-to-back.
In the Color Story 1, children are the teacher. After guessing each colorful riddle, they are ushered in to name the colors in the beautiful exhibits of reds, oranges, yellows, and the like. These are no common and ordinary color exhibits, mind you. In the Color Story 1, red is not simply "red". There are pomegranate red, raspberry red, brick red, ruby red, candy apple red, blood red, and more "red". Since there are creative and imaginative ways to describe the color of red, why be satisfied with just RED? It sparks the imagination to know that colors can be described in childlike ways, hence heightening the keenness in observation and clarity in expression. Isn't it grand that the children themselves can be the 'teacher' teaching the names of colors?
In the Color Story 2, children are invited to explore the world of pigments and dyes. Children are surrounded by colors. Nature is a treasury of colors. Therefore, it is natural for children to love colors and love expressing what they feel and see with colors. This begs a question. How can children MAKE colors? How did people make colors in the olden days? Even the people who dwelt in caves long ago used hand-made colors. How did they make them? What did they use? The Shapes, in their own love of colors, have long studied the ancient arts of how colors have been made. To all children who are curious to know as well, they are more than happy to share story after story of this forgotten art. Blue from a plant, red from a bug, green from a rock, yellow from a flower... These stories touch upon histories, continents, and cultures of yesterday and today. And they are eye-opening and highly interesting. Children will go beyond liking colors. By reading the Color Story 2, children will be excited about the colors they see, for they can make them too! (with parental guidance, of course)
Miss Anna's Color Story is a colorful gem! Full of delightful pictures and told with a coziness of rhyme, the Color Story will warm the hearts and tickle the minds of parents and children alike. Buy the book and enter into the world COLORS!

The Numbers are on the move around the world! From monster-sized trucks in Canada to the zipping skidoos in Antarctica, Numbers are working hard in the transport sector to help us travel and move. Number Reporters have been sent out all over the seven continents to document their faithful and daring action at work. Indeed the achievements of Numbers 10-99 need to acknowledged and celebrated, and Anchor Zero has been preparing to do so with flair and flamboyance. Be ready to be dazzled as the Numbers broadcast and celebrate the behind-the-scenes works of Numbers everywhere! John is ready to see the Numbers in action. Are you?
Miss Anna has been working hard to present her next book, Number Story 5 and 6, the third sequel in The Number Story series. In The Number Story 5, children are invited to travel the continents with the Numbers as they are introduced to the greater family of Numbers. Counting by tens was never more entertaining, and counting through 11 to 99 never so fun! And best of all, the number 100 will delightfully light up the eyes of young boys and girls. Flip the book, and there is Number Story 6! In The Number Story 6, children will be escorted into the invisible world of chairs. Chairs One, with its friendly charm, guides them across the world of Numberland where the Chairs give each Number more meaning and value. The story captures the concept of place values (ones, tens, hundreds, and thousands), and learning the idea behind it has never been simpler! If your child enjoyed the Number Story series, The Number Story 5 and 6 will make him/her smile even more. Read with your child The Number Stories and show how fun learning numbers (both big and small) can be!
I love MIss Anna's Number Stories!

Translational research connects science and clinical medicine from "the bench to the bedside." In Sleep, Epilepsies and Cognitive Impairment, the authors look back from the bedside to the brain function underlying clinical symptoms and reveal mechanisms explored by contemporary neuroimaging and signal analysis in the overlapping fields of sleep and epilepsy. This book will help the reader to see epilepsy from a new viewpoint.
The common pathophysiology binding together the diverse manifestations of epilepsies is the exaggeration of plastic functions of the brain involving the hippocampus, the non-specific thalamocortical system and the perisylvian cognitive network. Epileptic derailment seems to be the price for the latest achievements of the mammal and human brain; namely the highly developed ability to change and learn. The contemporary results of sleep research provide new viewpoints to explain why sleep and epilepsy are bedfellows. Converging evidence supports the concept that one of the most important biological roles of NREM sleep is the renewal of synaptic balance ensuring learning ability from one day to the next and consolidation of new memories. Epilepsy and NREM sleep use overlapping structures and functions, therefore epilepsy beginning in early childhood may interfere with sleep plastic functions. NREM sleep, which affects original learning and memory, may become the hidden source of chronic cognitive impairment when epilepsy occurs during sleep and blocks the plastic processes.
Sleep, Epilepsies and Cognitive Impairment abandons the academic classification of epilepsy by following the system epilepsy concept, binding major epilepsies with structures and functions of physiological brain systems. It tries to show within this system the close interrelationship between sleep, epilepsy and cognition.
Neuroscientists, clinical epileptologists and neurologists interested in brain processes underlying brain plasticity, sleep and epilepsy will find this book thought provoking. It offers good "brain-gymnastics" for reconsidering the ideas on epilepsy.

The Numbers have done it again! Now there is something more than number charts! Number charts are useful, yes, to teach children the numbers that are beyond ten. But the Numbers did sense that little John found that rather uninspiring, colorless boring, not to mention dull. How about a story? The Numbers came up with not just one but several memorable stories to cheerfully introduce the greater family of Eleven to Twenty. With more warm and enchanting pictures to delight little eyes, with the warmth of poetry and rhymes, Numbers are happy to present Eleven to Twenty in their family tree. What could be the stories that made little John smile all the while learning numbers eleven to twenty?
Miss Anna is happy to unveil her next book - Number Story 3 and 4, the second sequel in The Number Story series. Children will be enthralled and enraptured by the stories and pictures found within as they are introduced to more numbers and, in The Number Story 4, as they travel on an airship to attend exciting and REAL games across the seven continents all the while learn about the ordinal number names. The pleasant stories, the exciting airship adventures, the warm and cozy pictures, and the friendly and fun spirit of the Numbers will leave a twinkle in the eyes of a child. If you like charming numbers with a joyful flair, if you like stories that teach as well as entertain, then you will like the nuggets of knowledge packaged and wrapped in child-friendly morsels in Miss Anna's The Number Story 3 and 4. Buy the book to share with your child the tasty forkfuls within. Your child will be smiling as he/she learns numbers 11-20!
