ON NEWSSTANDS NOW
In the November issue of Parents, on sale now, FD has an item on the Dads page (not available online) enlightening pops on how to carve the turkey this Thanksgiving. It was an eye-opening lesson for FD, who had never carved a bird and typically lets Loving Mother do such things here at headquarters. But as we read the item in print now, we wonder where our mind truly was as we crafted our text. Here's a sweaty excerpt:
Pull a leg away with a carving fork, then work the tip of a sharp, eight- to ten-inch knife into the crease between the leg and carcass . . .Whew. Anyone else need some cranberry sauce?
THEY'RE BACK AND, UM, GOLDER THAN EVER
Golden Books famously came close to going out of business a few years back, though they came close enough to cost some of FD's colleagues their jobs. Now a tiny unit of Random House, we're pleased to see Golden making a major marketing push of its back catalog. We continue to be pleasantly surprised at how well such decades old books play with the home audience here. Golden's new ad campaign asks, "Everyone has a favorite Golden Book. What's yours?" Well, while you may be partial to "The Poky Little Puppy" or "The Saggy Baggy Elephant" (which was, ironically, FD's nickname back in high school), we say this is the greatest Golden of all.
IN OTHER GOLDEN BOOKS NEWS . . . (HAS ANYONE EVER SAID THAT BEFORE?)
New York City parents looking for some retro family time should amble over to the Donnell Library on 53rd Street from November 1-9 for an exhibit of original artwork from Golden Books classics.
IN CONCLUSION, SCIENTISTS DISCOVERED, NURSING MOMS WHO GO BACK TO WORK DON'T FEEL GUILTY ENOUGH
According to researchers at New Jersey's Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, when breast milk is kept refrigerated for more than 48 hours, its antioxidant levels drop - and freezing milk makes the anti-antioxidant effect even more pronounced. Fresh breast milk has the highest antioxidant levels. Enjoy your commute, breast-pumping moms!
