My recommendations this week:
If you’re a fan of Beatrix Potter, you must add this to your home library! It features illustrated excerpts from her journals and even has a pull-out sample of what the original Peter Rabbit book first looked like.
(My advice: Get the hardcover, not Kindle version.)
This book came to mind this morning when I walked downstairs to find Jonathan (10) spontaneously making pancakes.
All Little House fans need this title on your bookshelf–it’s like a food/history lesson and cookbook all in one.
For a limited time Educents are offering a year’s subscription to the Magic School Bus Science Club at 50% off–plus FREE shipping in the US.
If your kids are fans of the show/books and enjoy science experiments, you’ll want to check it out!
Featured sponsors this week:
Everyone knows about PBS, but did you know they also have a FREE service called PBS LearningMedia?
Browse by grade or subject to find digital resources (video, audio, lesson plans) on thousands of different topics. Definitely one site worth exploring in your homeschool!
West Coast readers: Great Homeschool Conventions will be coming your way June 18-20th in Ontario, California, and it isn’t too late to register.
A ton of excellent speakers, a HUGE exhibit hall, and plenty of inspiration: all good reasons to check into attending.
