Books kabook custom book

Illustrate Your Child In Their New Favorite Book with Kabook!

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.

Books Rosie NYT Bestseller

Rosie Revere and the Raucous Riveters The Questioneers Book #1

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.

Books Test Tutor Workbooks

The Best Test Preparation Workbooks for the NNAT

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.

DreamWorks Spirit Riding Free by PLAYMOBIL Is The Perfect Holiday Gift!

My youngest daughter is obsessed with DreamWorks Spirit Riding Free on Netflix. From the moment she first watched it, it became her favorite. Every night, every single night, she watches an episode. She has watched all of them several times and they don’t get old to her. I am 99.9% sure she has memorized every line in every episode. This holiday season I knew she needed a special Spirit Riding Free gift, and I found the perfect one from PLAYMOBIL!

Gaming Luigi's Mansion 3DS

Why We Love the New Luigi’s Mansion for Nintendo 3DS!

One of my favorite video games is Luigi’s Mansion, so I was super excited to find out they were making a Nintendo 3DS version. I just couldn’t wait to share it with my daughters – and when Nintendo offered to send me a copy, I jumped at the chance. To help celebrate the release of this awesome game, they also sent us a special Poltergust 3000 flashlight (just like Luigi’s) and a Luigi costume!

My daughters love the movie Trolls, so when the Netflix show started, they binged it over and over. We have had many family nights where we watch several episodes. I have to admit, the series is a great follow up to the movie. My husband and I even enjoy watching it with the girls. There is humor and lessons to be learned as well. Season 4 is coming to Netflix on November 2nd, and we are so excited to celebrate – Trolls style!

Why Every Family Needs Super Mario Party for Nintendo Switch | #NintendoSwitchTogether

As you likely already know, we are a family of gamers. Some of our favorite video games are the ones we can all play together. Our current favorite? Super Mario Party for Switch!

Mario Party has always been a favorite of the Smith family, and we have been playing on the Wii U for a very long time. So is Super Mario Party for Switch worth picking up? Even if you have it for other systems? The answer is YES! And here is why.
