The First Dog Book Review

The First Dog Book Review

A Book Review by Elijah This is Elijah’s book review of the book The First Dog, by Jan Brett (32 pages, 1992) * Parent’s note – This is a really cute book and I used it during my native people study for homeschool. Obviously it isn’t fact BUT it is a fun story to accompany history lessons. This book was also a Reading Rainbow book, which is kinda cool to me!  

Interrupting Chicken

Interrupting Chicken

A Book Review By Landen This is Landen’s book review of the book Interrupting Chicken, by David Ezra Stein (40 pages, 2016) *Parent’s note – This book is true to fashion, the little guy wants a bedtime story, gets one… interrupts, gets another… interrupts and it ends with dad asleep before his son! How many nights have your little ones out-storied you? My kids loved this book and Landen enjoyed telling the joke he included in his review for quite awhile.

Leftover Halloween candy

Leftover Halloween candy

So What do you do with all of that leftover Halloween Candy? Another Halloween has come to a close and during the celebration, candy is always the highlight, and as Halloween brings in handfuls of candy, if not bag fulls, many parents worry about their children having too much. If you aren’t keen on the excess sugar, chemicals, calories, or you just have multiple children (and the multiple load of candy), what do you do? Here is a quick rundown of what you can do with that candy, of course…

Free-Range Kids, yay or nay?

Free-Range Kids, yay or nay?

Free-range Kids… is it for you? While walking out of the library the other day, a book, Free-Range Kids, caught my eye and I grabbed it, which is a bit unusual for me because unless a book is about crock pot recipes or gardening, I usually don’t check out books for myself (library trips are usually for the kids), and it isn’t that I don’t like books, I love books, I have shelves full of books… I’ve just become that busy mom with too many excuses! After a day of homeschooling,…

Pirate Girl Book Review

Pirate Girl Book Review

A Book Review by Emmy This is Emmy’s book review for the book Pirate Girl, by Cornelia Funke (32 pages, 2005) *Parents note- The book Pirate Girl brings the concept of pirates to girls but does start with a girl getting kidnapped by pirates. My daughter thought it was both sad for a bit, then happy at the end, and enjoyed the Pirate theme. My only wish, and this is me being a bit feminist I guess, is that Molly would have done more to help her situation, rather then wait…

Something Extraordinary Book Review

Something Extraordinary Book Review

A Book Review By Elijah This is Elijah’s book review for the book Something Extraordinary, by Ben Clanton (40 pages, 2015) *Parent’s note- This is a cute book that helps kids use their imaginations along with the little guy in the book… wishing for things, even crazy things, can be fun, but it’s often the small things that are awesome. This is a great bedtime story for little ones and the illustrations are very sweet.

How to Make a Lung

How to Make a Lung

How Does a Lung work? We recently purchased the Magic School Bus Human Body Lab, shown at the left and which I will be reviewing when we are completely done with the projects. One of the experiments showcased the Respiratory System and showed how to build a lung, however, this experiment is easy to whip up and I thought I would share how the kids enjoyed it! You will need a 2 liter bottle, tape, cling wrap, scissors, a balloon and a small strip of paper. To build the lung…

I told my kids the truth about Santa

I told my kids the truth about Santa

Yup, I told my kids the truth about Santa! I can just see the hate mail now but it’s true, the weekend before Thanksgiving, I told my kids the truth about Santa, and really it was a long time coming! Honestly, I had never wanted to go the Santa route, because it felt like a lie and as a Christian it bothered me, but my husband talked me into it, and after years of watching my children and other children obsess over Santa, I decided to tell my kids, who…

The Mermaid and the Shoe Book Review

The Mermaid and the Shoe Book Review

A Book Review by Emmy  This is Emmy’s book review for the book The Mermaid and the Shoe by K. G. Campbell (32 pages, 2014) *Parent’s note – This book is in sync with The Little Mermaid, though different, it showcases the youngest mermaid, who runs off to find herself. I liked the message of everyone having talent and of course Emmy thought it was a great read!
