May 31st, 2010 (No Comments)

We are a family of readers, but I noticed that two of our children did not seem to enjoy reading as much as the others.  After trying out one volume of Tintin with great reviews, we purchased the whole set last Christmas (yes, this means we have a duplicate, but in our family this doesn’t […]

Wrap-Ups Addition

May 21st, 2010 (No Comments)

Wrap-Ups Addition (or any of the math sets) 3 of our 4 boys liked them – easy to take anywhere, no loose parts to get lost, quick and simple to use, no pencil and paper required. The odd-man-out? Not a big fan of Wrap-Ups because he’d much rather flip through flash cards or fill out […]

Tell Me About Heaven

May 20th, 2010 (No Comments)

My favorite book for grieving children When my youngest son Christian passed away, I was searching for a book that would be appropriate to read with my two older boys (7 and 9yo at the time).  This book fit perfectly!

My kids loved doing the Space Exploration projects. Even though their ages are from 6-11 there was something for all of them. It was very easy for them to read the directions and figure out the projects. Marusa Northern Cambria I am a mother if three. I have been home schooling for almost five years […]

Charlotte Mason Companion

An inspiring vision! The Charlotte Mason Companion is my favorite homeschooling book ever, not just because it gave me a sense of direction, but because it inspired me with a vision of a happily humming homeschool in which parents and children can truly love learning and have a marvelously well-rounded education.  This book was a […]

My First Book of Mazes

May 12th, 2010 (No Comments)

This is a great book (My First Book of Mazes) for beginning fine motor skills, holding a pencil/crayon and great price for a consumable. Great for ages 2-4. Can pull it out anywhere to keep kids busy and since the mazes increase in difficulty it makes them even more interesting. Buy the set because they […]
