My hunch would be that like me, you have heard about Ayurveda, but thought this was too involved, to launch into cooking following its principles. That’s exactly why the author decided to write The 30-Minute Ayurvedic Cookbook, to show you can actually prepare simple Ayurvedic meals in 30 minutes or less. Though she does admit that to reach that goal, you may have to use canned food or make large batches of food that will last the whole week.

After reviewing a book for preschoolers and first graders, here is Word Detective:
130 Games and Puzzles to Improve Spelling for second graders, ages 7 to 8.

To help enhance the young students’ vocabulary, the author has put together a list of 200 spelling words, through 130 engaging games and puzzles.
They are organized in the following chapters: Family, Friends, School, Animals, Park, Colors and Numbers, Feelings, Home, everyday words, fun words, and putting it all together.
As a fun extra thing, the book starts with a mystery. As the students find letters with a magnifying glass throughout the book, they can solve this mystery! Hence the title, Word Detective.
