Story Time: I See Sam Books

Nathan has really loved reading these books.  They are similar to BOB Books except that they move along at a slower pace, and we think the stories are more interesting.  There are 52 books in total.  They are in the free domain.  You can look at them and print them for free.  The quality […]

Story Time: The Golden Goblet by Eloise Jarvis McGraw

The Golden Goblet This seemed to be Rylee’s favorite out the books we read for Egypt this year.  It is from the perspective of the lower class in Egypt.  I think the ending has such a sweet lesson to be learned.

Story Time: Mara, Daughter of the Nile by Eloise Jarvis McGraw

Mara, Daughter of the Nile I enjoyed this book, but I thought it was a little to old for Rylee (9).  It was heavy on the romance (nothing inappropriate).  There is a whipping of a woman that takes place that is pretty harsh as well.  I plan to let Rylee read it […]

Story Time: What Do People Do All Day? by Richard Scarry

Richard Scarry’s What Do People Do All Day

This book is a little outdated, but it is still a keeper.  It does a great job explaining what people do for their jobs.  The illustrations have a lot going on in true Richard Scarry fashion.  You could stare at them […]

Story Time: The Usborne Flip-Flap Body Book

The Usborne Flip Flap Body Book

This is a fantastic introduction to the human body.  All three of my kids enjoy it each time we read it.  I don’t agree with every single thing, but I just discuss it with my kids.  No biggie for us. It […]

Free Toddler Flip Book Printable!

Xanthe was wanting some flashcards because she saw Nathan’s “All About Spelling” flashcards, so I created a simple little flip book for her and I thought I would share it. She loves it and begs for more all day long. I am amazed at how fast she is learning.

It is a no-nonsense approach. There […]

We have been reading Treasury books all week! Tons of great stories. Unfortunately we have not finished any of them. Next week it will probably be a double long list. 🙂

Rylee lost her kindle yesterday, and so I cannot check to see what she has been reading… 🙁 […]
