Between the Lions: Paper Vowels

On April 15th PBS will be releasing Between the Lions: Paper Vowel on DVD.


Series Information: BETWEEN THE LIONS is designed to help kids ages 3 to 7 learn
to read. Unique among the hundreds of programs aimed at children, this puppet, animated, and live-action show is curriculum based – a lively, educational blend of phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, and other teaching methods for preschool, kindergarten, and first grade students. Independent studies show that kids who regularly watch BETWEEN THE LIONS learn key reading skills faster than kids who don’t watch. (Taken from the Press Release).

Run Time on this DVD is about 125 minutes, contains 5 episodes, and has extras such as printable activities, coloring pages and practice sheets. 

What I love about Between the Lions is that it gets children excited about reading at a young age. The main characters are a lion family. The lion family is so cute and they do a great job and gaining and holding the children's attention. Look for this DVD on April 15th on  Between the Lions: Paper Vowels . You can also pre-order now on the same link. The DVD costs $9.99.

*Disclosure: The Momma Blogger may have received a screener copy of the above mentioned DVD. No other compensation was received. All opinions in the post are that of my own and not persuaded in any way.*

Glassic Water Bottles

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.


What they have to say:
  • The Glasstic Glass Water Bottle is perfect for all of your favorite beverages for the following key reasons but are greatly preferred by Essential Oil and Alkaline Water drinkers due to the glass water bottle insert that contains their infused water products.  These users demand Glass!
  • Shatterproof: Designed with a glass insert on the inside of a durable plastic outer casing that helps protect from breakage while providing containment and shatter proofing even if the glass does break.  Our customers love that we offer glass insert replacements for the life of the product for just the cost of shipping.  This encourages reuse. Competitors don’t provide this safety or reusability!
  • Safe & Pure: contains a 16oz pure glass insert on the inside where your liquids are and a BPA Free Plastic outer shell around the glass to provide durability and containment.  No risk of bad chemicals leaching into your water or beverage.  For users of Essential Oils or Alkaline Water this is mandatory!
  • Clean: Product can be easily disassembled and cleaned manually or in the top rack of a dishwasher.  Essential oil users required this ability and we provided it. No more worrying if the plastic straw is full of bacteria or not...
  • Temperate: Double layered protection with a space between the glass and plastic which provides for total condensation protection and some additional insulation for your beverage.  Won’t make a mess on your wood table!
  • Easy to Use: Leak-proof flip cap lid to “drink on the go” and a safety lock to prevent  accidental opening & leakage.  Essential oil users love this because it is a far better solution than using a mason jar or less safe glass water bottle for their citrus based essential oils.
  • Portable: The easy to carry handle & protective casing makes it perfect for...Pools & Waterparks, Beaches & Lakes, The Golf Course & Other Sporting Events, Gyms & Yoga Studios, Schools
  • Essential oil users require a glass bottle that they can confidently carry their citrus essential oil infused waters with them everywhere they go...Glasstic delivers!
 
What I have to say: 



I love a lot of things about the Glassic water bottles. First thing I noticed about this water bottle was that this is a glass bottle and has an coating of plastic on top. This plastic protects it from breaking if dropped. Which I did. Just for review purposes, I dropped my very nice Glassic water bottle from about 4 feet up. Just let go and let it fall. The bottle did a little bounce but did not break. I am so glad when they said it was shatterproof they meant it. I would have been sad if my bottle would have shattered. Another bonus is the bottle doesn't sweat. Meaning that you can lay it on a surface that would usually leave a ring from a cup sweating and be fine.

Then you wonder why both plastic and glass. If you infuse water or put a fluid in a plastic bottle that is bright in color, the color and oil absorb into the plastic. This is eliminated by the bottle being glass on the inside. Glass will not absorb essential oils. This is great for those who love to infuse their water.



The bottle also has a hook on the side of the lid that locks into the down position. This hook is great if you want to hook it to your bike or belt or whatever. Again, a very useful feature.



The bottle also has a locking lid. It locks with a slide lock. I love this feature because it means that lid only opens when you want that lid to open. Spill prevention for adults. When you do want it open it has a flip top lid. I love how brightly colored the lid is as well. Very vibrant.


The bottle has a decent size opening. It isn't too big and isn't too small. It seems like they thought of everything when the produced the Glassic Bottle.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Campbell's Heart Healthy

Sometimes it's easy forget to eat right and exercise and overall stay heart healthy especially if you're a busy parent. But it is very important to remember to be heart healthy and to eat right and get proper exercise so that we can stay healthy. I like to do yoga with my kids as part of our exercise. We don't even know the proper names of the poses. Some names were made up to appeal to children and other name poses we made up. But we have so much fun doing it anyways. And when the weather is nice it's so much fun to get outside and run around with the kids. Sometimes, in the evening it is nice to take leisurely walks. How do you stay active?

Eating right is an important part of being heart healthy as well. But I don't mean eating bland food that is tasteless. Today I am going to share with you five of my favorite tasty American Heart Association Certified Recipes, just click on each one to download:
