1-2-3 Moose - A Counting Book

Image
March is Reading Awareness month, so I thought it would be nice to share with you a few books that would be great to share with your children this year.  There is no age too young to read to them, so I thought this 1-2-3 book would be perfect for Savannah.  It is a counting book and an animal book.  Oh, did I mention it is a board book, too??  Like I said, perfect!

1-2-3 Moose  is a counting board book, but it is also a great photography book with different animals.

Book Synopsis:
Eminent photographer Art Wolfe's images of moose, cougars, mallards, and sea lions are a wonderful visual aid for children learning to count. Wolfe draws inspiration from his home region, the Pacific Northwest and Alaska, but the crisp photogr…

Odd Squad - The Movie

Image
Math is not my thing. I can do it, but I don't really enjoy it.  Now, my dad and my brother?  That is another thing... they love it and use it every day in their line of work.  I am happy to report that Broxton will be following along them, as he loves numbers and I can proudly say that is is good at it. Last year, I was so happy and excited when we got a report from his school saying that in the math portions of tests, he was considered Advanced!    Yay!!! I know it isn't from me, so I can thank The Odd Squad for showing him numbers are cool and that you do actually use them every day!  He loves this show and when he found out they made a movie, he was so excited!   Now, he can watch it whenever he wants to!!!

Word World - Let's Make Music

Image
There is no denying how much I love books.  I have loved books for as long as I can remember and I will tell you this, nothing sweeter than walking in a room seeing Broxton reading a book.  (Bonus points if he's reading to Savannah!)  He loves reading, ( Oh how I love saying that!)  and I hope Savannah loves it as she gets older too!
We recently had a conversation with my moms group about TV time and while some parents say NO TV, I have no shame in admitting that I will put the TV on when I need me time. You know ... BATHROOM ALONE, cooking, just a moment to think...  I do put on fun and educational shows, so give me some credit!  
Broxton grew up watching Word World and Super Why... and while I know that reading to / with him and him being in school helped, I can't help but think that him watching these shows helped to push him along too!!!  That being said, when I saw that Word World had "Let's Make Music" available, I knew I wanted Savannah to see it. Not only i…

Children and Smartphones. What age works for you?

I am not sure how it is in your house, but around here, Broxton has already started asking for a cellphone. The answer is NO, but I was curious... what age do you think is a good one to start considering purchasing one? The post below is a guest post on thoughts and tips to making a big decision like this.
WHEN SHOULD YOU BUY YOUR CHILD A SMARTPHONE? It’s the burning question on every family’s lips: At what age should you buy your kid a smartphone or similar mobile communications device? Ironically, as parenting experts note, there’s no one answer that fits every household. Rather, the decision when to invest in such devices is largely a function of family need, children’s maturity level, and both how well-equipped that you feel your children are to make good decisions and the safety tools that you’ve put in place to catch them if they should stumble. However, in the interest of providing a succinct answer, be advised: Many parents first introduce a cell phone to kids around age 13. W…
