There are a LOT of homeschooled kids on Maui, the island where I live. Although my children are grown, I honor the mothers who choose to go this route for it's a lot of work. Many such mothers would be delighted to discover the informative blog Little Fun Little Learning which is chock full of resources for Moms Who Homeschool.
Reading over the January 22 posting by Revka, the blogger, I saw that she posted about children's books with her suggestions. Which brings me to my posting:
I LOVE children's books! Always have! I didn't realize HOW MUCH until this Christmas when I was leaving the Safeway grocery store, and I spied a huge, messy bin of children's books. I screeched to a stop with my shopping cart and proceeded to browse this goldmine! So many authors who had created mini masterpieces, and here they were awaiting eager eyes and ears to appreciate them for such a small amount of money! So I bought some as gifts. Of course, I had to read them first. Who says adults can't enjoy children's books!?
Children's books are some of the most amazing book creations: colorful, imaginative, great stories, amazing art, wonderful teaching tools, and FUN!
