April 1, 2006
"God designed parenthood to be an enormous character-building exercise," says frazzled dad Dave Meurer. In The Hair-Raising Joys of Raising Boys, he explores the meaningful reflections (a.k.a. the laugh-out-loud occurrences and been-there-done-that moments) that only dads can truly understand. From the seemingly impossible task of imparting moral guidance to getting boys to take their cold medicine, this insightful book brings out the humor in the practical challenges of raising sons. Yes, bringing up boys is a monumental, multiyear battle--and that's just trying to get them to eat their vegetables! But with Dave Meurer's help, readers will learn to value each moment with a little style, humor, and grace.

Girls will have all kinds of fun as they begin to understand that God has a greater purpose for their lives—even at this age.

Rush Hour
Honk! Honk! It's gridlock and the little red car can't move. The player is a traffic cop in the Rush Hour Traffic Jam Puzzle where the objective is to get the red car off the road. To play, pick one of 40 challenge cards; solutions are printed on the back of each card. Then set up the cars and buses in a specified pattern on the 6-inch-square road grid. Move the vehicles one by one (obey those traffic laws!) until the red car can escape the traffic jam. There are four levels of difficulty. Kids can alternate turns with another player or just "play in traffic" alone. The game from Binary Arts received a national award from Mensa and is used in elementary school math classes. The design includes clear instructions printed on the sturdy box, which can be used both as a playing tray and for storage. The game cards stow away in a drawer in the road grid. This is a 1999 Parents' Choice recommended toy.
