Advances in pediatric dentistry are constantly taking place and for many parents, maneuvering their way through the world of dental care can be overwhelming. From sealants and flouride to estetic dentistry and beginning orthodontic care, knowing can sometimes get confusing, but not knowing about the importance of dental care in your children can be even more detrimental. That's why our February issue will discuss the variety of pediatric dental care tips and information in honor of Dental Health month. So pay attention to our new Pediatric Health section next month to find out more about dental health and your child.

Tutor Whisperer Re-Launches Web site to Assist Students

The highly sought after tutor and educational expert, Julie Kamins,

The Tutor Whisperer, has re-launched her site, www.thetutorwhisperer.com, the number one site bringing students, parents, educators, and curriculum together in an exclusive forum.

The site offers an extensive array of learning tools including a learning strategy of the week, where Kamins contributes her preferred tools and resources, such as favorite learning websites, new perspectives on learning, and at-home strategies. Not only can you "meet Julie," but you can also explore learning obstacles, visit the Student Lounge, read case studies, ask questions, and even buy some last minute school supplies.

By approaching learning holistically and using her degrees in English, Sociology and Law, Julie reaches children intuitively, allowing them to develop their skills interactively through her site. Her students range in grade levels from developmental kindergarten to graduate school-a wide range of educational levels. In addition, she has developed specialized, alternate programs for those struggling with standard teaching methods. Kamins also works as a mentor and guide to college-bound students, coaching them through the maze of applications and essays.

Local Writer and Illustrator Collaborate on New Children's Book

"Leelah loves spring because spring brings summer. And she really loves summer because then it's time to go to the lake!"

Both living and working in Indianapolis, writer Pamela Fettig and illustrator Darren Strecker teamed up to create the newly published children's book Leelah at the Lake, an adventure story that stars a mischievous little girl named Leelah.

Leelah loves the lake and can't wait to get there! The lakeshore is filled with all kinds of fun things just waiting to be discovered. Leelah meets a frog and a worm for the first time. She chases ducks and swims. And she looks for shooting stars. No matter what she's doing, Leelah always has fun at the lake and never fails to make readers chuckle. This book is a wonderful read for young children any time of year.

Leelah at the Lake is Pamela Fettig's first children's book. Dear to her heart, the book was inspired by her niece during a sunny weekend at a lake in northern Indiana.

Darren Strecker is a minimally known illustrator and graphic designer. See more of his work at www.darrenstrecker.blogspot.com. Book is available on Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com.
