I was always a reader growing up, and that is something that I have instilled in my daughters since they were born. We are always adding new and exciting books to our home library, and nothing quite excites my girls like stories that they are featured in. There are several customizable book options out there, but the coolest one by far that I have come across is Kabook! Why? Well not only is your child included in the story, you are given a list of photos to take of your children so that they are illustrated in the story.
My daughters love to read, I guess they get that from their mama. Lately, my oldest has really started reading books on her own. While it totally breaks my heart to know she doesn’t need me to read to her anymore, I love seeing her gain some independence. Of course, I love when she picks books that will teach her a good lesson, like The Questioneers books. She just read Rosie Revere and the Raucous Riveters – and loved every bit of it! She learned to persevere, and never give up – which is such an important lesson for young girl to learn.
You probably know this already, but I have two young daughters. They are 5 and 7 years old – and I might be a little biased, but they are little smartie pants. These girls are pretty brilliant, even their teachers have said so. There are many gifted and talented programs in the NYC area and they use the Naglieri Nonverbal Ability Test® Second Edition (NNAT-2) to asses the general intellectual ability of kids. This test is for grades kindergarten through 12th – and these workbooks from The Test Tutor are a great way to help your kids study for it.
I have been reading to my daughters since they were in my belly. Now, we all read together. I have been blown away by the great readers that they have become over the last year or so. And I have to thank Ready-to-Read books. Not only are their books placed in to different levels, which encourages my girls to strive to get to the next one, there are also some great resources on their website. Find out how I have encouraged my girls to increase their reading level – and enjoy doing it.
Another New Comic Book Day has arrived and this week there tons of comics I can’t wait to pick up and read through. This is my suggested pull list for October 3, 2019. As you probably know by now, I am a Marvel girl at heart. I am totally trying to expand my comic knowledge and start some DC stuff so let me know what I should be reading!
My entire family has been watching Star Vs. The Forces of Evil since the first episode aired on DisneyXD. It hooked us right away, and it is something we always look forward to watching together. My young daughters were even Star Butterfly and Ludo for Halloween two years ago. The show literally gets better and better with each episode. We were thrilled to not only discover Disney was putting out The Magic Book of Spells, but especially to have one arrive on our doorstep (thank you Disney Book Group!!).
Another New Comic Book Day has arrived and this week there are a lot of comics I am looking forward to! Here is my pull list for September 26, 2019, along with a few sprinkled in that I think comic book fans would like to know about. As you probably know by now, I am a Marvel girl. But I am trying to expand my comic knowledge and start some DC stuff. If you have any suggestions for me, please, pass them along!
I have been reading to my daughters since they were in my womb. It is something I started while pregnant and have continued to do every single day and night. Now, my daughters read to me a lot of the time, which is bittersweet. Recently, Disney Hyperion sent us three of their new books, and these have all become fast favorites in our home. I think they are all books that every family should own – and here is why!
Welcome to my pull list for new comic book day September 19th, 2018 (9/19/18). You probably know that I am quite the comic book collector. This week has a ton of comics that I have been waiting for coming out! I am really excited about a lot of the titles that will be out today – which ones will you be picking up? Here are the ones that are catching my eye…
Halloween is fast approaching and as I asked my daughters what they wanted to be, my oldest kept saying a character from a book. Imagine our surprise when we received an email offering us a Dr. Suess Halloween costume to check out. Well, my daughter was over the moon when it showed up because it was a character from one of her favorite books – Green Eggs and Ham! This costume is available only at Spirit Halloween, and here is why you should pick it up.
