My recommendations this week:
We stumbled upon this gem of a book at the library, and I’ve been impressed with its beautiful illustrations, old and new US history, folktales, poems and songs. For ages 7 and up.
Hoping to inspire my kids to even healthier eating, I had an inner nudge to download Season 1 of Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution last week. Mission accomplished!
They’ve been asking to cook, whipping up new recipes, and even turning down sugar! I’d recommend it for ages 10 and up – there is some language here and there.
We started this World War II novel earlier this week. It’s the true story of a group of Norwegian children who smuggle their city’s gold reserves out of the hands of the Nazis, right under their noses! For ages 9 and up.
Featured sponsors this week:
If you have arts & crafts lovin’ kids, take a peek at the collection of eco-art kits from Artterro.
The kids and I have enjoyed the needle felting kit, and they also make ones for jewelry, bookmaking, dolls, journals, & even bubble wands. Perfect for springtime birthdays or holidays!
Have you checked out Educents yet? It’s the perfect site to find homeschooling deals on all kinds of popular products and curriculum, often up to 50% off!
I’ve found deals there on Life of Fred, Magic School Bus Science Club, History downloads we love – plenty to choose from as you plan your upcoming year.
