As we say around here, it’s nicer in Newtown!

One of my favorite things this summer has been seeing how you guys have been using and enjoying Give Your Child the World in your homes and with your families.

Thanks to Daniela of Arkevita.com, the book even made an appearance among the ruins of Pompeii:

To make sure you didn’t miss any of the other highlights from Europe week of the book club, pop over to take a peek at Sarah Mackenzie’s recap.

And I’ll see you back here on Monday as we take in the sights of North America together–one book at a time. Remember, it isn’t too late to join us!

One of my favorite offerings from Dover Publications is their collection of historical discovery kits (like the one here!) that combine living books with activities.

They have kits covering the Revolutionary & Civil Wars, the Wild West, WWII and more–use code WHAY for 25% OFF their entire store!

So much learning while exploring Africa this week!

After 10 full days of being out of stock, Amazon finally has new copies in of Give Your Child the World! Thank you for buying them all up and putting the book in the Top 10 (!), and if you’ve been waiting to get your copy go get it now!

I love this review from A Geesaman:

Hours on Pinterest and several dozen pins on books and I still couldn’t put together something this user friendly for our home use.”

YES! That is exactly what I hoped to do with this book–save you all those hours and do the hard work for you so you can get straight to the fun part: discovering the world with your babes!

In other news, Africa week of our Read the World Summer Book Club was such a hit–go check out Sarah Mackenzie’s recap to make sure you didn’t miss any of the excitement.

And don’t forget: We’ll be reading our way around Europe starting on Monday…and you’re invited!

Have you ever had one of those magical moments when you try on a dress, skirt, or pair of pants to find it fits PERFECTLY–like it was made just for you?

Hallelujah, this happened with my recent Stitch Fix! Can’t rave about this service enough. I finally look like I know how to dress myself (LOL), & I don’t have to brave the dreaded mall!
