“This 5 pack of Easter themed books is a great mix of stories focusing on different parts of the holiday.” Read More
“My 5-year-old daughter is not only hooked on the music, but she LOVES the story in the booklet and has made me read it to her several times since the CD arrived. Itâ€™s hard to tell which oneâ€™s her favorite song because theyâ€™re all different, but I think â€œBailar rÃ¡pido (Bailar tranquilo) is definitely up there. My son loves the salsa version of â€œOld MacDonald.â€ Just a couple of nights ago, we played the CD in my daughterâ€™s room and both kids burned a bunch of energy bailandoâ€¦ ok, I too. Itâ€™s that good!” Read More
“I had the pleasure of reviewing three books from the Letâ€™s-Read-And-Find-Out Science series, made available in the March SeeSaw flyer from Scholastic. This incredible series of books walks you and your child through a science related topic in a very straightforward and understandable way. I had used (and loved!) several of the books from this series in my kindergarten classroom, and was so excited to be able to share these with my own children. Each of these books presents a wealth of material in kid-friendly language. Many of the books provide additional information for families who want to extend their learning and discover more about the topic on their own. ” Read More
“ Laughter rocks. Especially when you get to enjoy laughter with kidsâ€¦ and my kids love to laugh, which makes me laugh even more. Even a dumb joke is funny, when you get in a silly moodâ€¦and that is what The Pocket Prank Star is all about. We giggled all the way through this thing, and now my son carries it around like a diary to record favorite jokes, pranks (it even allows him to â€œrank a prankâ€â€¦ based on how funny/successful it was!” Read More
“One thing I really loved about the book is how the boyâ€™s mom and dad help him find a way to feel like himself again and to enjoy their activities together. It is so nice to see parents being shown giving direction and help to their kids and how that can turn a difficult day around.” Read More
