Mom and Me: An Art Journal to Share By: Lacy Mucklow and Bethany Robertson is a great way for those that enjoy drawing to connect together. This book is designed for a mother and child to express their feelings through art side by side. Ages six through 15 seems to be the best fit, in my opinion.
A is for America Letter Tracing is a book to introduce to children that want or need to practice their handwriting skills. The book goes through the alphabet starting with A and end with Z. The letters to practice are in capital and lowercase format. State facts are given on each letter page so children will not only practice writing but learn fun and interesting geographical facts.
DK Readers are a great choice for children ages 4-12 years old. I have children ages 8, 5 1/2, and almost four months old in my home. My two oldest children are benefiting from the educational aspects of the recent 2016 readers available by DK without even realizing it because these are so fun!
As a homeschooling parent, I’m always looking for books my kids are engaged by to incorporate into our curriculum. I’m pleased that many of these titles are working out exceptionally well for our science, history, and nature studies in the upcoming school year.
I’ve been using the Magic School Bus as our primary science for this year. The internet has a plethora of information, lesson plans, and print out sheets revolving around this series which makes compiling our lessons and experiments fun, fast, and easy! I’ll be posting many more and keeping somewhat of a digital record here on my blog! I’ll later compile a photo book of our science and nature studies for the year!
