 Jimmy Milks a Cow - Early Reader - Children's Picture Books 
Your child will love reading this book, or you will enjoy reading it to your child. This book is a really fun book about a young man's desire to accomplish something that all of his friends and classmates don't believe he can do. He believes in his dream and is able to accomplish his goal. An easy reading book with colorful graphics. 

Jimmy's whole class was going to Mr. Redman's Farm to see all of his animals. 

Jimmy couldn't wait! His mom didn't even have to rush him to eat breakfast or tell him to brush his teeth. 

"I will pet a chicken, I will see the pigs!" Jimmy exclaimed to his mom while she cooked breakfast for Jimmy. 

Then a new thought came to Jimmy, "I will milk a cow!" Jimmy exclaimed. 

Jimmy's mom laughed and hurried Jimmy to eat so that he could catch the bus. 

Jimmy wondered if the bus would ever get to school as he dreamed of his field trip to Mr. Redman's Farm. 

Finally, Jimmy and his class were on their way! 

Jimmy told all his friends that he was going to milk a cow and they all laughed. 

Jimmy wondered why everyone laughed and didn't believe him. 

It seemed like it took forever to get to the farm but everyone said it was only 30 minutes away. 

Then Jimmy saw it, Mr. Redman's Farm! 

All the children screamed and yelled in joy! 

A man with a straw hat and overalls met the bus. The man was smiling and waving. He looked as excited as Jimmy was! 

The children got off the bus one by one and Jimmy was careful to stay in a straight line like the teacher said. 

Mr. Redman started talking to the 2nd grade class and telling them all about his farm. 

They walked from barn to barn. 

Jimmy got to pet a chicken, Jimmy saw the pigs. 

Now, all he had to do was find the cows! 

Jimmy kept reminding everyone he was going to milk a cow. Billy, one of Jimmy's friends, laughed really loud and said "You can't milk a cow!" 

Jimmy frowned and said "Why not?" Billy said "Duh, why would they let you and not us?" 

Jimmy didn't know the answer; he just knew he was going to milk a cow. 

As they all got closer to the cow barn, Jimmy grew more and 
more excited. 

Mr. Redman showed them around the barn. He explained and pointed to the stalls and the feed troughs. 

Then, he showed them the cows behind the barn! Jimmy was in awe. They were black and white and so big! 

He'd rode by a field of cows before but he'd never been this close to one before! 

"WOW!" Jimmy said.

Rock gardens have been part of landscaping and gardening lore for millenniums. In the East Japanese rock gardens or Zen gardens have been places where people could meditate in serene and harmonious surroundings. 

Why are more people designing their own gardens incorporating at least one rock garden in the design? Even if the rock garden is quite small, it is going to add a touch of distinction to the landscaping of your garden. 

In Japan, rock gardens were normally built as dry landscape gardens, where a number of landscapes were made up of natural compositions made from natural products incorporated into a landscape. These natural items included bushes, trees, Moss, water, rocks and sand. One believes that the concept of rock gardening originated in China, especially when the ancient religion of Shintoism spoke about places of harmony where one could commune with nature and the spirit in serenity. These were normally made in monasteries, where they could be seen from one focal point, like say the porch of the head priest of the monastery. 

These dry Landscape gardens which you call a Zen garden in Japan were built to be seen from one viewpoint, with the walling closed around it in ancient times. Nowadays they stretch on for miles incorporating all the natural features available and present in the area to make up harmonious surroundings. 

Japanese Zen gardens go back to 784 BC. Chinese gardens have been around for even longer. The incorporation of gravel and white sand in a Zen or rock garden was an important feature. These were the symbol of distance, emptiness, purity, white space and water. All these symbols were supposed to aid in meditation. White sand and gravel used harmoniously together were also used around temples, shrines and palaces.

For all those people who want to know more about diabetes, this book is going to give you plenty of information about how people have been surviving with natural remedies down the ages to help cure diabetes. Also, state-of-the-art methods of controlling diabetes appeared only in the 20th and 21st century. Nobody knew about insulin until the early 20th century. 

Most of these modern methods of trying to cure diabetes are still being followed by people all over the world, because they are too scared to look at natural remedies. Nevertheless, for centuries, natural remedies have been used to control and even cure this ages old disease. 

If you are suffering from hyperglycemia – increase of glucose in your blood – or you are suffering from glucosuria/glycosuria-presence of glucose in urine – it means you are suffering from diabetes. 

Diabetes can be genetically inherited, or can even be caused due to infection or high blood pressure, obesity, age, heart problems and even mental tension. 

If you are genetically inclined to diabetes, alas, there is no cure for this dread disease, in scientifically manufactured allopathic medicines. They have just one remedy for it, insulin injections. 

But you can try for cures in our natural remedies which have proven beneficial down the centuries. Also, people doing plenty of physical exercise have been known not to suffer from diabetes. That is why in olden days it was said to rise up early in the morning with the sun, go out in the fresh air and bask in the rays of the sun. This, along with physical exercise throughout the day would keep you healthy and happy. 

The logic behind this mantra is common sense. Forget about basking in the sun, and all that jazz. Concentrate on the term “physical exercise”. In ancient times, the populace worked hard to gather food. That is why any carbohydrates and starchy foods they ate were assimilated by the body really quickly. The people suffering from diabetes in these days were those who just lazed about in a very sedentary lifestyle, with absolutely no physical exercise. 
And soon they began to feel very thirsty, wanted to drink lots of water, and needed to empty their urinary bladder, very often. They felt very hungry, and even though they ate and ate, they lost weight fast. That was because all the sugar content in their body kept being eliminated whenever they emptied their bladders. They also began to get more and more lethargic. Well, they were now victims of diabetes.
