Summary

From Jennifer Scott—author of the New York Times bestselling Madame Chic series and founder of the Daily Connoisseur blog—comes this playful take on manners and being a good global citizen. Parents and younger children work together to read about a wide range of topics: communication, table manners, tidiness, thinking of others, grooming, and health. Activities, learning games, fill-in-the-blanks, letter-writing exercises, recipes (for food and for slime!), and some fun songs and rhymes help kids learn concepts and practice good behaviors. Featuring charming illustrations and go-to advice from a trusted source, this is a timely guide for raising well-mannered, neat, and gracious children for parents, grandparents, and children of reading age.

    Lord of the Flies, written by Nobel Prize-winner William Golding, is a story about a group of boys stranded on a deserted island, who must establish order amongst themselves. Shortly after crashing onto a deserted island, a group of  pre-adolescent boys form a community, electing Ralph to be their leader. As his first act, Ralph proclaims the boys will have fun and keep the signal fire going. All is well until thirst for power draws one boy to form his own tribe of "savages". Armed with the fear of a fictitious beast, this group of boys descend into further savagery with sacrifice and death. The story reaches its climax as the beast is revealed to be within each boy's heart, and Ralph is forced to flee for his survival.

    Hidden Secrets To Restore Natural Hearing Ability
     
    Do you have trouble hearing? Do you make people repeat what they say? Does your ear get sensitive to loud noises or do you still hear sounds even when it’s silent - having these common hearing disorders known as “hyperacusis” and “tinnitus,” respectively?
     
    Then you are one of the 466 millions of people around the world, according to the World Health Organization, who suffer from hearing loss.
     
    Fret not, many people go about their days without realizing that they have some kinds of hearing impairment, so aren’t aware of how much they are actually hampered when it comes to common daily tasks nor living the full productive life that they could be due to the limitation of poor hearing.
     
    The problem is only going to get worse with our increasing use of audio electronic devices and an exploding population, where everything within our immediate surroundings seems to be getting louder and louder. We no longer have the peace and quiet we need to avoid the danger of loud noises; thus, trying to put ourselves out of harm’s way for hearing damage is ever becoming impossible. Simply put, more people are slowly becoming deaf every day.
     
    What can one do against this growing noisy epidemic? You can fight back by discovering ways to protect your ears, as well as even improve your hearing conditions by combining western and eastern alternative approaches.
     
    “Better Hearing” will show you how to strengthen your hearing and prevent hearing loss naturally:
     
    * The ear exercises that you can perform to hear multiple sounds more distinctly.
     
    * The habitual adaptations to incorporate to increase your hearing ability range.
     
    * The best nutrition and supplements your body needs to sustain healthy hearing.
     
    * The frequency level of sounds to determine what noises you can and can’t hear.
     
    * The advanced methods to relieving common hearing symptoms, like tinnitus.
     
    ...plus many more secrets that very few know about for hearing improvement.
     
    If you are already using a hearing aid, you can strive to rely less on it. Even if you don’t have any hearing issue, you should start taking better care of your hearing now before it’s too late. Better your hearing today!
