Pass the time on those long summer days—and keep your kiddos learning during their time off from school—by cracking open a great book. From hilarious stories to heartfelt coming-of-age tales, these are some of the best children's books out there right now for elementary and middle school kids.
How do you know if your tween or child is ready for her first bra? It depends — companies make training bras for girls ages 5 or 6 up to teenage sizes. All girls develop at different rates, and it's up to each girl and her family to decide when it's time to go first-bra shopping. Some good indicators that your girl has reached training bra age is that she's expressing interest in getting one. Beginning with lightly lined bras is an easy way to introduce girls to the basics of dressing as an adult, and it's OK to let her practice (or "train") even if she isn't quite ready for the real thing. Even if your girl hasn't let you know she's in the market for a bra, it might be time to buy her first bra if she's noticeably developing, experiencing pain from lack of support or starting to be active in sports. We've rounded up great training bras for tweens, from sports bras to bralettes, from retailers like Walmart, Target, Justice and Yellowberry.
It's about that time: Ice, ice baby! There's a chill in the air, the winter months are upon us and ice skating rinks across the country are opening their gates. This, of course, keeps kids busy outside with friends while parents are bustling around buying holiday gifts, readying the house for guests and more. Ice skating is not only a great sport but also one of the best outdoor activities and winter weather pastimes for families. Whether your kid is a beginner or a star athlete, a boy or a girl, a figure skater or a hockey player, or just having fun with friends at the local frozen pond, here are the coolest ice skate styles from Amazon, Target, L.L. Bean and Urban Outfitters that any kid will covet.
Still sorting out how to balance your new bun in the oven with an old workout routine? Well, the timing is perfect to put high-tech fitness trackers to the test to monitor safe prenatal exercises, heart rates and sleep patterns while staying healthy and fit for the next nine months (and beyond, of course!). New moms must keep moving for optimal well-being, suggests G. Thomas Ruiz, MD, OB/GYN Lead at MemorialCare Orange Coast Medical Center in Fountain Valley, California. "We encourage expectant women to engage in exercise or physical activity on a regular basis throughout their pregnancy," he advises. "Women who are physically active during pregnancy tend to have smaller babies, which most women who are pushing out a kid don't mind." But what about the anxieties of pregnant moms who fear the harmful effects of radiation from such devices? "There has never been a study to demonstrate that background radiation from a cell phone or a Bluetooth device has had a deleterious effect on the outcome of pregnancy," says Dr. Ruiz. "There has been no data to determine it. We do ultrasounds on a regular basis, which is sending sound energy to the baby so we can do diagnostic work, and that is at a much higher level of energy than a cell phone. It's never been shown to demonstrate harmful effects towards the baby or the pregnancy. So moms can use their trackers to their heart's content." So stay strong and count on, Mama! From Fitbit to Bellabeat, here are are our best picks to keep new moms stepping out in style.
What parent isn't totally on board with finding the perfect train set to support their baby and big kid in building a love of locomotives, steam engines and freight cars? If your cute little conductor is driven by spending hours constructing and running rail cars while stimulating their imagination and improving cognitive skills, then we have the inside track on the best trains to entertain budding engineers of all ages. From stacking trains for toddlers to battery operated, electric and magnetic engines for more mature railroad enthusiasts (with many compatible tracks that can be expanded as your little one grows), there's something fun for every young train fan.
Whether your kid is trying to master the art of comedy or just needs a break from the electronics, a joke book can be a great way to get them reading. Reading jokes books can help your kids build vocabulary, improve social skills and develop problem-solving skills by figuring out silly riddles. Check out these cool, clean and kid-approved joke books from retailers like Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Walmart.
Sometimes it's best to think outside of the box. Unfortunately, cleanup time is not one of them. As all parents know, kiddos believe the perfect spot for storing their toys is on the floor. While this might be convenient for all of those dolls and dinosaurs to swiftly spring into action when it's time to play, the massive mess probably isn't a good look for mom. Luckily, for everyone's sake, there are super cool storage solutions that are not only functional, they're also fun and perfect for bedrooms and playrooms. Parents can even turn tidying up into a teachable moment. "Introducing kids early on to organizing will set them up for success later in life," says Tracy McCubbin, decluttering expert and author of This Book Will Set You Free: The 7 Emotional Clutter Blocks and How to Finally Conquer Them. "Organizing their toys when they are little will teach kids how to keep their future homes neat and even manage their schedules." Time to round up the best storage solutions for keeping your kid's play space looking spick-and-span! Check out our these awesome picks to give those games and gadgets a stylish home while making mom and dad happy. Toys in the bin or bust!

Check out these great infant toothbrushes from stores like Amazon, Target and Walmart.
