Book Spotlight: PECK – A LONELY, LITTLE LOVEBIRD DOWN UNDER: Remi Nicole


SYNOPSIS: “A little lovebird named Peck lives happily in Australia with his animal friends until he starts to feel like he is the only one without someone to share his life with. Peck decides he must travel to a faraway land to find what he seeks, but he learns through his many adventures that there is so much fun in the journey along the way.”

MY THOUGHTS: What’s NOT to love about Peck? From his adorable, heart-shaped face to his determination, Peck really is a lovebird. But, his beauty isn’t just skin deep. Peck comes to us with a message of friendship & love. Messages like this are timeless. Every child can comprehend Peck’s feelings of loneliness and wanting to connect with someone like them. As Peck follows through with his journey, we see a character with a mindset to never give up and one who achieves his goals. Perhaps millennials need to read Peck too! Bottom line: Peck is a fantastic, beautifully-illustrated 4 star book!

DVD Spotlight: ‘Sweatin’ to the Oldies: 30th Anniversary Addition”

SYNOPSIS:FAIRFAX, VA — For thirty years, the inimitable Richard Simmons has been helping people lose weight (more than 3,000,000 pounds and counting) and get healthy with his unique enthusiasm, charm and encouragement.  Since opening his first aerobics studio in Beverly Hills in 1974, he has cemented himself in America’s pop-culture psyche with 65 fitness videos (selling over 20 million copies), dozens of infomercials, nine best-selling books, myriad parodies of his over-the-top persona, and seemingly endless TV and film appearances.  And, on October 31, Time Life celebrates the iconic weight loss guru with a landmark DVD release: RICHARD SIMMONS: SWEATIN’ TO THE OLDIES: 30TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION.  The set will be available for $39.95srp, exclusively from Amazon.com.

“So many sparkly tank tops – so many memories.”
— Richard Simmons

The energetic 6-disc set includes the complete collection of Simmons’ best-selling Sweatin’ to the Oldies workout programs.  Pairing lively classics from the ’50s and ’60s with rockin’ low impact routines and Simmons’ humorous banter, encouragement and sparkly tank tops, SWEATIN’ TO THE OLDIES: 30TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION offers fun for the entire family.  Across five discs, home exercisers will find forty-one exercise routines set to rock n’ roll classics such as “It’s My Party,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Gimme Some Lovin’,” “Oh, Pretty Woman,” and more.

Loaded with extras, this special anniversary set also includes 100 minutes of bonus programming featuring an exclusive interview with Richard, testimonials and success stories from Simmons’  students, a full-color 20-page album of rare personal photos and memories personally selected by Richard and a bonus disc of “Love Yourself and Win — Six Steps to Self-Esteem & Permanent Weight Loss.”

Says Simmons’ “I can’t believe it has been 30 years since the beginning! For the first time ever, I have compiled the complete “Sweatin’ to the Oldies” collection…It’s the original and still the best way to get your heart racing and your blood pumping!”

Delivering a serious message with his trademark humor, Simmons has helped millions of overweight men and women lose millions of pounds by adopting sensible balanced eating programs and exercise regimes that are energetic, fun and motivating.  And, since the early ’70s, when he established his innovative weight loss facility where the overweight of the world were welcome with open arms, Simmons has become a pop culture fixture with numerous local and national television and radio appearances including a four-year run on “General Hospital,” followed by his own nationally syndicated, Emmy Award-winning series, “The Richard Simmons Show.”

With the overstuffed holidays coming potentially adding on unwanted pounds, there’s never been a better time to become re-acquainted with one of the best-selling home entertainment fitness series in history with RICHARD SIMMONS: SWEATIN’ TO THE OLDIES: 30TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION.

MY THOUGHTS: My mom & I were always big fans of Richard Simmons. From the ‘Deal-A-Meal’ Program to ‘Sweatin’ To The Oldies’, we’ve made weight loss a priority with Richard. Besides his shining smile and award-winning personality, what always stuck with me was how sincere he came across. Every guest, every participant received his 100% attention and he was never afraid to reach out to hug people. His loving guidance is what sets Richard apart from the countless fitness instructors that have come along.

He never put his name on anything that didn’t work. Committing to helping people was his goal and not just his job. He had fun, that’s for sure, but it was always with a purpose. He endured the ribbing from comedians and imitators for a greater good. I wonder how many of them are platinum-selling stars? No matter how many how-to videos you purchase, it’s impossible to have MORE fun than you do when you’re ‘Sweatin’ to the Oldies’. These DVDs are simply timeless. You will get a great workout. You will have fun and you will never forget Richard Simmons.

Thankfully, Time Life has offered all 6 DVDs in one awesome collection so that a whole new generation can experience his unique, effective workouts. Thank you, Richard Simmons, for all you’ve done for all your fans!
