New Year by Rich Lo {Book Review}


New Year by Rich Lo is a book that I feel many children locating to a new school or country can relate too. In this story, we meet a young boy that has relocated from China to America.

Talking with Your Toddler {Review}

Talking with Your Toddler: 75 Fun Activities and Interactive Games that Teach Your Child to Talk is a helpful guide for parents, teachers and caregivers. This book is packed full of engaging games and activities that can boost and challenge developing language skills. As a mom of three, I felt that a book like this I wouldn’t use so often but my third child is not talking as soon as my first two. So many of the exercises listed, I’m taking note to do early on.  Please note that I firmly believe every child develops in certain areas at different times and when they are ready but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t look for every opportunity to help!
