Storytime with Mr. Whiskers

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (December 3, 2018) - The new free Youtube Channel, Storytime With Mr. Whiskers, offers children a unique and engaging type of reading experience, allowing kids to hear stories read aloud and follow along by watching a video.

“We created this channel as a free resource to children, families, and teachers,” said Storytime with Mr. Whiskers founder, Ash Gilpin. “These video children’s books are a new way to entertain kids through the magic of storytelling.”

The channel, which launched in November 2018, features children's stories by a variety of authors read by the stuffed-animal character, Mr. Whiskers, and his friends. Each story posted on the Youtube channel includes a pleasant animation of the book as each page is read aloud by the furry character. The program airs weekly on YouTube where Mr. Whiskers and his friends read aloud some favorite children's books.

Children can listen to these books and follow along with the video alongside a parent, turning each story into a fun family activity. The wholesome children’s stories come alive through the warm voice of narrator Mr. Whiskers and cozy story illustrations.

“We know that storytime is an important part of being a kid,” Ash said. “We wanted to make that experience even more fun and meaningful.”

After the videos are aired, they remain on the channel and can be viewed at any time. The interactive tales can be used for home entertainment, bedtime stories, or even as an education tool for teachers.

Storytime not only entertains children, it also helps with their cognitive development. Children who are read to frequently are more likely to count to 20 or higher than those who are not, according to the National Education Association. Additionally, students who do more reading at home are better readers and have higher math scores, according to the nonprofit, Educational Testing Service.

Storytime with Mr. Whiskers brings a fun, unique and educational activity straight to your home or classroom. Authors who would like to submit their stories for review on the channel can visit Also visit the site to learn more about the free service and begin enjoying the magical wonder of storytime, today!

Top Baby Boy Names

Once you have tackled the hard part of how to get pregnant, now it’s time to focus on all that pregnancy has to offer. One such thing to do while pregnant is finding a baby name. Choosing a name for your baby is a big task. The last thing parents want to do is subject a child to ridicule due to the name they give the child. Kids can be cruel and will not hesitate to bully if the name gives them a reason for it. Think of it this way. The fact is their child will be stuck with a name for life, or until they are legally able to change their name if they hate it. Parents may choose to name their children after beloved family members who are living or deceased, depending on their culture of course.

People also assume that very odd names like North or Apple are going to end up in the top 20 names for boys or girls, but the fact of the matter is that it simply did not happen. Even though odd names may be trending, for the most part, they still will not end up in the top 20 names. In fact, either Biblical or names that have been popular for decades find themselves on this list.

So, based on the popularity of boys names from this year, listed below are the boy names that were trending.

1. Noah makes it to the top, and it is a Hebrew name which means peaceful. This name has been on the top spot for several of years. That means if you have a son or daughter in elementary school, you can bet he or she has several classmates with the name Noah. Your future kids will likely have classmates named Noah as well.

2. Liam comes second and it is an Irish name, which is short for William which means strong-willed warrior. This name will help the little guy make it well in life, but he could be a challenge during his childhood! Liam will certainly be quite strong-willed.

3. Mason comes third and is French for the stone worker, and it has a good hardworking feel to it. When you think of an industrious little boy, Mason is quite fitting! He won't be a slacker, that is for sure!

4. Jacob comes forth and has been popular for a very long time. In fact, it has been in the top 10 names for 14 years. It is Hebrew and an Old Testament name and it means supplanter. There is even a good chance that your parents may have had classmates named Jacob from back in the day.

5. William comes fifth and is of English and German origin, and means protector.  Certainly, a strong sounding name that has been always quite common.

6. Ethan comes in sixth place, and it is Hebrew for the firm and strong. Perhaps this is known to people even on an intuitive level, which explains why many of them use this name for their sons.

7. James comes in seventh place and is a New Testament name which is English for supplanter.

8. Alexander is a Greek name and it comes in eighth place which means defender of the mankind.

9. Michael comes in ninth place, and it's an Old Testament and Hebrew name which means who is like God. It is also a name of an ArchAngel who is known as the protector.

10. Benjamin comes in the tenth place, and it is Hebrew which means son of my right hand. It’s the name of Jacob and Rachel’s youngest son in the Old Testament. Boys with this name are usually called Ben or Benji.

11. Elijah comes in the eleventh place and it is a Hebrew name, it’s the name of a prophet who moved to heaven in a chariot of fire in the Old Testament.

12. Daniel comes in twelfth place and it is also Hebrew, which means God is my judge. Boys with this name are usually called Danny or Dan.      

13. Aiden comes into thirteenth place, and it is an Irish name which means fiery. You could have a little boy that truly is spirited that has this name.

14. Logan is an Irish name and it means meadow and became famous my Wolverine.    

15. Matthew is a Hebrew name and it has a smooth sound to it. It means gift of God.      

16. Lucas is of German and Irish origin which means bringer of light. It has been quite popular for a while, and it is still in the top 20 names for boys.

17. Jackson is an English name and it sounds super cool. Therefore, if you want your son to make a huge impression, you will want to name him Jackson.      

18. David is an Old Testament name, and it is Hebrew which means beloved. It is a name that will never go out of style since it is Biblical.

19. Oliver  is of Latin origin which literally means olive tree. It is a stylish and energetic name      

20. Jayden is a Hebrew name which is non-traditional but it means thankful.         

There you have it. The top 20 trending boy names. Therefore, if you are thinking of giving your future son, whether you are expecting or not, but something to keep in mind in case it happens, you have some ideas of names to use if you want to use something that is common and not so unique. Because names that are overly unique again can be magnets for bullying, and your child may end up hating it as a result.

Parenting the focus of Film Mode Entertainment’s “Monster” movie

Image result for champagne

Another amazing family film coming your way for November – and this one is further proof that you should never judge a book – or in this case, film art – by its cover!

Paulina Lagudi’s “Mail Order Monster”, due November 6 on iTunes, is wrapped in the shell of a fun and wacky family comedy about a little girl’s unlikely friendship with a robot but within it? Much much more. There’s some lovely, really deep themes of acceptance and the terrifying thought of ‘change’ here that will really hit home with many – particularly those moms who’ve recently found themselves to be new stepmothers.

Check the film out – starring everyone’s favorite Sunnydale high student Charisma Carpenter – on iTunes and other platforms from November 6.

Please keep in mind I cannot personally vouch for all of these companies. You will need to read ALL the fine print before signing up to be a consultant. There could always be “hidden” fees, so make sure you are fully aware of the all the details before you pay anything and register.
It's also a good idea to do some Googling first to see what other consultants and/or customers have to say about the company you're considering and their products.
If the company you want to join isn't affordable, keep tabs on them. Sometimes they'll offer special promotions for potential consultants so you can get started cheaper. You may also be able to find an existing rep who would be willing to sponsor you or help you earn your kit in some way, so that's another thing to think about.
