Window on the World

March 30th, 2011 (No Comments)

It opens one’s eyes too the different cultures, religions, and (my personal favorite) ways to pray for them using beautiful graphics and helpful facts!

We purchased the Primary Science Set as a Christmas git for our 4 year old, and she has had a blast with it.  She is able to gather the supplies and do the experiments with help from us.  The goggles are perfect, and the big tweezers are easy for her to use.  I wish there […]
