The 39 Clues - PKTR 41

It's here! The exciting adventure series we told you about last December, "The 39 Clues" has been released and is now in stores. We received our copy just moments before the show was taped, so bear with us as we try to make sense of it.

You'll notice a gap in the show at the 10 minute mark - but stay with us - we return within two minutes. Technical difficulties...

Think of this show as our initial impression of the hot-off-the-press first book, "The Maze of Bones" in what will ultimately be a ten book series. Rick Riordan, author of "The Lightning Thief" and all of the books in the Percy Jackson series, wrote the story arc for The 39 Clues as well as this first book.

On our next show we will have much more information for our listeners when we do a full show about The 39 Clues, so tune in again on October 4 to Parents and Kids Talk Radio.

Thanks for listening!

Success in School: Tips for Parents and Kids - PKTR 40

Summer is over and we managed to get the kids back in school - what have we learned in the process?


Today's show will provide oodles of tips and ideas to smooth the transition from summer to school time. If things are still a bit bumpy in your household, listen to this show. We'll have helpful hints that have worked for us.

From school supplies and stocking your own homework/office area to the clothes that the kids love to wear. PKTR hosts share what's worked for them, what they've learned and other things they've observed.

Listen to the last 15 minutes when we'll give you updates on the latest iPhone apps, too, including these:

Hanoi, Hanoi Plus, Lumen lite, iDoodle2 lite, Etch-a-Sketch, Enigmo, Audi A4, KoiPond, TiltSnake, Bubble Wrap, iChoose, Coin Toss, Cradle and Labyrinth LE.

Thanks for listening!

Join us again next week on Parents and Kids Talk Radio.
