Contents Volume 19 • Number 7 Dear Reader, What an exciting time! School is letting out, there are parties to attend and very energetic kids ready to play in the sun. This was always my favorite time of year. Our family loved taking vacations to the beach. Our favorite destination was always Santa Cruz and the Beach Boardwalk. When we weren’t off to the beach, summer was filled with sports. We had practices, tournaments and team parties. There was also the occasional birthday party or week at a sleep-away camp. It was certainly a busy time of year, but summer holds so many special memories. I hope yours gets off to a wonderful start! This month we are excited to present the 2012 National Parenting Publications Award (NAPPA) award-winning products. Specifically highlighted are child-rearing tools and the many resources available for parents. I encourage you to see what is featured. The NAPPA awards are a great insight into modern learning and childrearing tools that can be cutting-edge. Also featured this month are our Family Favorite Awards. You voted and now we are proud to present the Eighth Annual Readers Choice Awards! Take a look and see what local businesses were recognized by fellow parents as great family-friendly businesses to frequent. As summer gets underway, see our Summer Activity Listing for ideas on fun activities for children of all ages!
