BODY, MIND, & SPIRIT COSMO’S TRUTH OR DARE Our Naughtiest Sex Games Yet!

THE LANGUAGE OF ZEN: Heart Speaking to Heart

In a recent issue, Cosmo put a naughty twist on the classic Truth or Dare game, featuring perforated tear-out cards. Readers went wild, and we knew we had a winner! With the ultra-sexy new Cosmo’s Truth or Dare, couples simply take turns picking from a set of 120 cards and choosing a spicy “Truth” or an edgy “Dare.”

“God,” “Zazen,” “Void,” “Koan”: We may think we understand these words. But what exactly do they mean in the world of Zen Buddhism? Westerners can have difficulty grasping the language in the way the original Zen writers intended. This lyrical inquiry examines the complexity of these terms, expanding your mind and opening it to the possibilities of Zen.

BEGIN SMART is not just another book program. It addresses children’s needs to engage on many levels. Early childhood research shows that children learn through different modalities. In order to learn about the world, kids need to take in information through all of their senses—eyes, ears, fingers, mouths, and noses—and they need to manipulate objects. All the books are designed to be interactive. By structuring a program developmentally, Begin Smart helps them make sense of the disordered array of reading choices they often face in the marketplace. Begin Smart is a gift of learning—not only for children under three, but also for their parents. Author: HARRIET ZIEFERT began her career as a teacher, then entered the publishing field where she developed a curriculum for kindergarteners. For the past 25 years she has been writing books for young children. As an author, her main focus has been to create age-appropriate content, in an age-appropriate format—content that considers kids’ emotional and intellectual development together. In the past five years Harriet has focused on the question: What is age-appropriate content for babies? Begin Smart™ books are the result of many years of experience with young children, including the study of infant development at the Psychoanalytic Institute of New York.

THE CASE OF THE MOSSY LAKE MONSTER

Peek-a-boo isn’t a baby’s favorite game by chance: After a first birthday, a baby begins to understand that even when something isn’t in sight, it still exists. This charming book, with flaps to lift and see-through die cuts, will help little ones solidify object permanence.

Would-be scientists and detectives will want to slip into their coats, dust off their test tubes, and get on the case with Drake Doyle and Nell Fossey. Hint: to find the answers, kids will have to use such scientific principles as buoyancy and static electricity.

Cause and effect is a concept that children learn slowly over time. One of the first instances a baby learns is that a pushed button usually produces a sound. Gradually, they will also learn: a bee flies and it buzzes, a propeller goes around and it whirrs, water is turned on and it whooshes, a jack-in-the-box pops up and everyone expresses surprise.

In Constance and Tiny the irrepressible scamp ran away only to get dragged back home. Now her scheming parents are sending her off to a terrible, horrible place: a BOARDING SCHOOL! There, the rules are strict, the bathwater’s cold, and the food’s horrid. Worst of all, her beloved cat Tiny can’t come along. But canny Constance has a plan!

Now, these two new books make it easy for solvers to test their knowledge of entertainment and sports even when they’re alone. It’s simple: just read the question, scratch off the circle next to what you think is the right answer, and see how you did.

Master the ripple effect! The Ripple Effect diagram is divided into areas called rooms. If a room contains two squares, they must be filled with the numbers 1 and 2. If there are three squares, it’s 1, 2, and 3, and so on. But the “ripple effect” rule dictates that any two 1s in the same row or column must have at least one square between them…any two 2s must have at least two squares between them…and so on. 978-1-4027-5754-9 CONCEALED SPIRAL-BOUND PAPER $6.95 • 6 X 9 • 160 PAGES PUZZLEWRIGHT • RIGHTS: WENG • JANUARY 2010

CANYON OF DREAMS

HOW TO PLAY THE KAZOO

The Magic and the Music of Laurel Canyon Harvey Kubernik, foreword by Ray Manzarek, afterword by Lou Adler

This funky, funny, and kitschy kit has everything you need to start jamming with the kazoo. It contains the kazoo, a CD with music to play along with, and a 64-page book that offers easy lessons for beginniners—including easy-to-follow riffs. Plus, the book offers fun kazoo tidbits and pop culture references.

A lavishly illustrated insider’s look at 80 years of music and culture in Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon is a zip code with its own play list: to name just a few, Sonny & Cher; The Doors; The Turtles; Canned Heat; Monkees; Byrds; Buffalo Springfield; Joni Mitchell; Jackson Browne; Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young; Eagles; and Carole King all cultivated their immortal sounds in this L.A.-based musical fraternity. Written by a long-time Canyon resident who knows them all, Canyon of Dreams traces the history of the community and its enduring legacy. Taking a deeply personal approach, it uses a multiple-voice narration based on exclusive interviews with the area’s musical elite. Because of their close and long-time connection with Kubernik, some of these stars are speaking openly for the first time.
