Editor's Note


Bamboo has a lot to celebrate!

This issue marks our one-year anniversary! I would like to thank each and every one of you for your support over this past year. Our readership has been steadily increasing and so much of that has been through word-of-mouth. Heartfelt gratitude to you all!

Spring is not only a time for celebration but for renewal as well. That is why I am excited to share with you the newly-formatted Bamboo! Listening to so many of our readers’ requests and feedback regarding the flip-through element of the magazine, we have decided to shift into a more user-friendly format. This will cover the bases on the technical/marketing mumbo-jumbo side of things as well as give you, the reader, easier access to the magazine. You will now have the option to comment on articles, bookmark and share, share, share to your heart’s content without having to email us for technical support! Plus, we will still have the same content and beautiful images that have been Bamboo staples!

I’d also like to thank our wonderful writers, photographers and designers for the Spring 2012 edition. We have some veteran Bamboo contributors as well as some freshmen (and women!). In this issue we celebrate spring with The Joys of Asparagus Season with the Gluten-Free Girl, Grandmother Wisdom and the Spring Within, Gardening with Children as well as a delightful Spring Pictorial. Celebrate motherhood with the Myth of Perfection, a birth story from behind the lens and a mother’s journey toward a healthier diet. Also, Marcy Axness, PhD lends her insight on Parenting for Peace, we have an interview with Mayim Bialik about her new book on Attachment Parenting, and you’ll find a wonderful answer to timeouts and ideas for baby’s first year. Learn about your dreams, feng shui, chemicals to avoid at home, how to adapt to your child’s developmental changes and more!

And as always we have our Show + Tell product pages and Bamboo Book Recommendations, as well as a Conscious Close-Up with Kids for Saving Earth and a lovely, simple wooden stacker tutorial for the wood-crafter in you!

So sit back, relax and enjoy perusing the newly-formatted pages of the Spring 2012 edition of Bamboo Magazine :: Whole Family Living! And if you are so inspired, please help spread the word by sharing what you may find in our pages that speaks to you.


Wishing you and your family peace and joy,
