I also wanted to include some review for a few of my favorite purchases this year.
Organic Crafts by Kimberly Monaghan, totally awesome. While some of the projects are to advanced for L, there's a ton in there for me! There are recipes in there to make your own paste, glue, paint, tye dye, clay, etc. I think this will remain a part of our collection for many years to come, I'm sure I will still be using it when I have grandbabies. Milly-Molly-Mandy Storybook by Joyce Lankester Brisley a sweet story book from a time less complicated then our own. It's about a sweet little girl who lives with her mom, dad, auncle, aunt, grandma and her grandpa. She is smart, cute and quite loveable, a joy to read.
Is A Blue Whale The Biggest Thing There Is? By Robert E. Wells. Teach purportion and relativism to a child of 4, totally awesome. A Very fun read, even for mommy.
Yoga Kit for Kids by Imaginazium, not a book but cool. It comes with 25 great cards showing Yoga poses as animals. If I hadn't found this I would have made it myself. L loves doing yoga with me, so what a great way for her to get attive on rainy days.
We got many other great books, but so far these are my favorites may have to do a few more "mini-reviews" as the year progresses.
