If you and your children are a fan of Dr. Seuss, I’m sure you and your kids are getting pretty excited about The Lorax movie that will be hitting the theaters in just a few more days! If you know nothing about the Lorax storybook or movie, you should know that the aim overall is to encourage people to look at the impact that we have on the world around us and to respect and care for our planet. This is a message that I believe in strongly sharing with my children. And I quote from the book, “”Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better, it’s not.”
Speaking of caring for our environment, I’m pleased to share that in partnership with Universal Studios’ motion picture debut of Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax*also known as the “Speaker for the Trees” who brings environmental truth and ecological hope to all, Seventh Generation will feature limited edition Lorax prints on all our diapers and training pants. These prints are intended to remind parents and caregivers of the lessons of The Lorax, and encourage family reading and environmental awareness while creating a few smiles. Discover (or rediscover) Dr. Suess’ The Lorax as you read about his legacy and messages of sustainability with your child, and inspire a new generation of environmentalists starting with your family!
Parent rejoice because this March, The Seventh Generation family of Free & Clear baby products continues to deliver on your needs as it expands with the addition of NEW Overnight Diapers. Moreover, Free & Clear diapers have been redesigned with new, improved tabs for better fit while Free and Clear training pants now have an absorbent core that is made with more renewable materials.
Some pros about these new products are:
* NEW Overnight Diapers are absorbent enough to keep your baby and bedding dry through the night or during prolonged travel
* Free & Clear diapers have improved more flexible tabs that provide even better fit
* Free & Clear training pants have an absorbent core made with more renewable, plant-based materials. They also feature stretchy, tear away side panels for a better fit and added convenience, as well as inner leak barriers for superior leakage protection
* Seventh Generation Free & Clear baby care products do not contain chlorine, fragrance, petroleum-based lotions or latex, and all Free & Clear products are also hypo-allergenic
* Starting March 2, you can register for a free The Lorax scrapbook with the purchase of any three Free & Clear diaper products, until supplies last
I personally adore Seventh Generation diapers, in fact they are all I will use on my children when they aren’t wearing cloth. I was given the opportunity to try the new Free and Clear diapers with improved softer tabs and better fit and was very happy with the results. My son is 14 months and he’s a very energetic and active little boy (running, climbing, and always on the go), these diapers are totally designed to prevent any leakage and I am pleased that we’ve had no negative issues at all. In fact, these diapers are all I will use other than cloth because they are great for the environment and for my son who has very sensitive skin.

As a homeschooling blogging mother of a preschooler and Toddler, I’m very much into sharing about all the great educational materials I come across that my readers may also want to use with their own children! I’m happy to say with our future generation being very much into technology and using the computers that a browser-based virtual world like the one Jump Start offers is great for those just being introduced to using the computer as well as children that already know some of their way around.
My daughter is 3 and half years old and has been using Jumpstart as a part of her schooling for about six months now. The way she now navigates using a computer and how savvy she has become in her schooling has really made me proud. Though not just by itself but I am sure that including Jumpstart’s Virtual on line world has encouraged her learning and she’s become very in the know mastering all her early preschool skills as well as getting around on the computer. In fact, she’s already mastered the section on the game that was created for 3-5 year olds and has moved on to the other areas!
The Jump Start virtual world was created for children ages 3-10 years old. To start, children can create personal avatar characters and easily begin to explore the world of Jumpstart. The world of JumpStart is ever changing and I love that there’s always something new to keep your kids attention!
JumpStart.com is world of resources for both parents and teachers. You can find all sorts of information to add to a lesson plan or create one solely from the vast information and helpful suggestions they’ve put together! I’ve been reading up on the JumpStart Blog at http://blog.jumpstart.com for information about the latest additions to the game! I like being hands on in what my children are learning and JumpStart makes that so easy having written up a very helpful game guide.
My daughter loves playing JumpStart so much that she’s always asking to go on the computer to play. I’m pretty sure my baby boy who is ahead of his game will be getting connected on there soon too. He already watches his sister and has begun recognizing colors and shapes and saying what they are! Overall Jumpstart has done a great job make learning so much fun for kids. There’s nothing we don’t like and we highly recommend getting connected to the Jumpstart Virtual world too!
We were using Jumpstart.com for free which any can do for awhile but I’m going to recommend purchasing a membership ! There are several memership levels to choose from and when you sign up, you get access to everything on JumpStart.com, Learning Adventure’s other virtual world, MathBlaster.com AND four downloadable games to play right on your own computer.

The opinions I have given are mine and may differ from others but were not influenced by the company or the free product provided.”
