#FREE read! 'The Farmer's Water Buckets' by A.M. Marcus

Teach your children to celebrate their differences.

Being different is not easy, especially for young children. Sharing a story wherein the main characters celebrate being different is a very powerful tool for any child. This book shows a great example of looking at the bright side of things and aims to inspire children to embrace who they are with all their unique differences.

This inspiring tale tells the story of The Farmer's Water Buckets in which one of the watering buckets unfortunately breaks. From then on, the broken bucket feels sad about not living to the expectations of others and not being able to help the farmer like he used to before he got broke.
  • Will the cracked bucket manage deal with his difference?
  • Will the cracked bucket still help the farmer after being broken?
  • Can both buckets still be friends?

This book will help you teach your children the value of tolerance, cooperation and acceptance while celebrating their differences. It may help boost a child's self-esteem and realize that being different isn't a negative trait.

It reinforces the view that being different is a positive thing and encourages children to accept the fact that everyone is different.

"Tell me a fact and I'll learn. Tell me a truth and I'll believe. But tell me a story and it will live in my heart forever."
Native American proverb

A. M. Marcus graduated from the Technion Israel Institute Of Technology with B.Sc. Cum Laude in Computer Engineering.

Throughout his studies, he has been teaching and helping children with math and through his work, he has helped them to discover their inner strength and motivation to continue studying and nurturing success in life.

He loves the challenge of early education, and especially enjoys working with children with learning difficulties. He has found great satisfaction in helping them conquer their fears and overcome the challenges associated with their education.

A. M. Marcus has read hundreds of self improvement books, and been influenced heavily by them. Through self-reflection, he found that his great dream was to share that wisdom, especially with kids.

A. M. Marcus left his computer engineering career in order to pursue his dream of becoming an author of children's books. Today, he continues to write these books, with the goal of teaching kids basic skills through his stories. He believes that a good story is an excellent way to communicate ideas to children.

Each and every story is based upon some deep issue, value, or virtue that can potentially make a huge impact on the lives of both children and adults. He has a vast collection of quotes, and usually bases his stories off of quotes he personally finds inspiring.

For example, the first book he published in English on amazon was, "The Peaceful Lion And The Nagging Crow."

The story can be summed up thusly:

"Don't Take Anything Personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won't be the victim of needless suffering."
--- Don Miguel Ruiz.

Dear parents, attend to A. M. Marcus' stories carefully, for there will always be a message for you

'Let's Visit the Farm!' by William A. Campbell, Jr.

Let's Visit the Farm! A Children's eBook with Pictures of Farm Animals and Baby Animals has been designed to be the first step in helping your child build their vocabulary. Included in each book is a number of high quality images of very cute farm animals and baby animals that your child will enjoy looking and reading about for months. In this book your child will be learning about which animals live on the farm and what job or role they have on the farm. 

My books use simple one or two sentence facts which is accompanied by a relevant picture of the animal. This makes the perfect first word book to share because young children will love reading along while being encouraged to start using their words to read along. This is an excellent and fun educational resource to start your child off with. 

Lets Visit the Farm! is a fun and entertaining journey for a young child to find out interesting facts about the world's most common farm animals along with baby animals.

From the author:

Hi! My name is William A. Campbell Jr from Windsor Ontario Canada. I'm a single father of two children with a very hectic job in the corperate audio video field. I often work very long hours of the day and find that I do not have alot of time for my other passion "cooking" while enjoying my family time. My daughter wants me to hold her and dance around the room while my son is asking me to fix his computer or to play against him on ps4. Both of which are very hard to do while trying to cook up a pot roast that takes 3 hours to cook. So naturally what happened was that we started eating out more, more boxed dinners and pizza deliveries. I knew that was not the kind of foods that I wanted my children to be eating. So I went out looking for a solution. I found one in adding a pressure cooker into our kitchen. Soon after buying my pressure cooker I started cooking everything from scratch again. I was able to shave hours off of cooking dinner and had that extra time to enjoy with my family. This is why I created the No Fuss pressure cooker series for simple clean eating and my Holiday Pressure cooker recipes series. I hope that my guides will help you as much as they have helped me and my family. My Let's Visit series was made by me for my daughter who I did not see for roughly six months of her life. I would often think about her and decided to write books so that once we were reunited that we would read them together. My prayers were answered and my daughter is now back in my life and we now read the books that I created for her. I hope you are your children enjoy the books as much as my daughter and I do.
