My son just ordered the Your Baby Can Read kit for my 6mth grandson. I will keep you posted on how it actually works.
Your Baby Can Read
A baby’s brain thrives on stimulation and develops at a phenomenal pace…nearly 90% during the first five years of life! The best and easiest time to learn a language is during the infant and toddler years…when the brain is creating thousands of synapses, or connections, allowing a child to learn both the written word and spoken word simultaneously.
Seize this small window of opportunity to enhance your child’s learning ability with the Your Baby Can Read Early Language Development System.

Makes about 50
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside. Trim about 1/2 inch from the perimeter of the cake. Working in batches, crumble cake into the bowl of a food processor; process until fine crumbs form. Transfer to a large bowl and add frosting; blend together using the back of a spoon, until well combined, 5 to 10 minutes.
- Roll mixture into 1 1/4- to 1 1/2-inch balls; transfer to prepared baking sheet. Cover with parchment-paper-lined aluminum foil. Transfer to refrigerator until chilled, about 2 hours or to a freezer for about 10 minutes.
- Begin to shape balls into cupcakes by rolling balls first into logs. Fit logs into a 1 1/4-by-3/4-inch flower-shaped cookie cutter. Push cake mixture into the cutter halfway so that some of the cake mixture extends beyond the top of the cutter. Shape extended cake mixture into a cupcake-shaped top. Push cake from cutter to remove. Transfer to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Transfer to freezer until chilled, 5 to 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, melt chocolate in heatproof bowl set over (but not touching) simmering water. Line another baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside. Remove cupcakes from freezer and dip the bottom of each cupcake into the chocolate; transfer, bottom-side up, to prepared baking sheet. To make lollipops, insert a lollipop stick into the bottom of each cupcake. Let chocolate set, 15 to 20 minutes.
- Melt white chocolate or pink candy melts in heatproof bowl set over (but not touching) simmering water. Dip the tops of the cupcakes into the chocolate and place right-side up on prepared baking sheet or stick lollipop sticks into a Styrofoam square. Place a candy-coated chocolate in the center of each and top with sprinkles. Let dry completely. Check out Bakerella's Blog http://bakerella.blogspot.com. As seen on:

The following are some of Kin's favorite freebies. But you can download them and explore the features yourself. You'll find download links at www.komando.com/news.
Create documents, spreadsheets and more...
Microsoft Office is the de facto standard office suite. You probably use it at work, but that doesn't mean you need it at home. The free OpenOffice includes a word processor, spreadsheet, database, presentation program and is compatible with Microsoft Office files formats.
Download e-mail - OpenOffice doesn't contain a Microsoft Outlook equivalent. You'll need to look elsewhere for a program to manage e-mail. Mozilla's free Thunderbird offers many of the same e-mail features as Outlook.
Manage appointments with a calendar - Lightning is a free calendar add-on for Thunderbird. Or download Sunbird. It provides the same features as Lightning in a free standalone program.
Lay out professional documents - Scribus is much like Microsoft Publisher or Adobe InDesign. You'll get professional-quality page layouts in a free easy-to-use program.
Edit photos - Photoshop is the Holy Grail for many photographers. However, the $600 price tag puts it out of reach of many. You don't need to settle for a lesser photo editor. The free GIMP rivals Photoshop in terms of features — and complexity!
Refine your drawing skills - Like Photoshop, illustration programs can be quite costly. You can spend hundreds of dollars on Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw. Inkscape lacks some advanced features, but is a worthy free contender. Inkscape is compatible with many different file types.
Be creative with graphics - Microsoft Paint is included with Windows. It isn't a serious graphics program, but many casual users rely on it. In contrast, the free Tux Paint is specifically designed for children. Large buttons make it easy to create drawings and graphics.
Edit digital videos - The professional-grade Adobe Premiere video-editing program is more powerful than most people need. Avidemux is free and ideal for home users. It simplifies the video-editing process and works with a variety of file formats.
Design Web pages - Do you want to create your own website? I recommend a WYSIWYG (what-you-see-is-what-you-get) HTML editor. You can design Web pages without learning any coding. Dreamweaver is a popular WYSIWYG editor, but you'll get the same features with the free Nvu.
Create PDF files - PDF files can be read on virtually any computer without formatting inconsistencies. Most people won't use Adobe Acrobat enough to justify its price. Enter the free PDFCreator. PDFCreator resides in your printer list. Install it and select it as a printer to convert a file to PDF. However, PDFCreator does not let you edit PDF files.
Manage your money - Every household and business needs an accounting program to manage finances. TurboCASH is much like QuickBooks.

Did you know that research has shown that children learn the Alphabet in a certain order. A child will learn the curved letters first, then the curved letters with a straight line, and last the letters with only straight lines. Following is the order in which I have taught the Alphabet letters: S, J, C, F, L, V, T, W, K, P, G, A, B, E, D, H, M, Z, N, R, O, I, Q, U, Y, X. Keep checking back I will be adding more each week. Have Fun!
