Scholastic Monday ~ Old Turtle Questions of the Heart

Kids have a lot of questions, don’t they? Lots of why’s and what would happen if….questions. Lots of questions about life and how things work. Oftentimes our own children will come to us with questions about things I’ve never thought about before, or at least not for a very long time. I love the questions […]

Scholastic Monday ~ I Need a Hug

Do you like hugs? I can vouch for the fact that a good hug definitely makes a tough day a little bit better…or a lot better! We have some wonderful “huggers” in our home and I’m not giving them up! 😉 Buuuuut…what if you need a hug, but you’re just a wee bit prickly…spikey….or pokey? […]

Scholastic Monday ~ King Baby

  Kings and Queens is a ‘game’ that is commonly played in our home. Our kids enjoy dressing up, pretending to be royalty and being the ‘King’ or ‘Queen’ for a day. It’s all just a lot of fun! But what about a baby…who’s a King? A King Baby. Sound intriguing? Sound like something your […]

Raincoast Books – Thea Stilton Graphic Novels!

Our kids have been enamored with Geronimo Stilton books for awhile now. They’re quite the little mystery stories and I like how they use varying fonts and colours to add to the books.

Raincoast Books – Father’s Day! ~Giveaway!

Guess what! Only a week and a half until Father’s Day! I would have to admit that I’m sort of glad that my kids are starting to be in school – because I’m terrible at planning any sort of Father’s Day “stuff”! I never seem to think of it until it’s the day before (or […]

Otter Tales ~ GIVEAWAY! (5 WINNERS!)

There are so many ‘life lessons’ to be learned! Of course, I believe it’s better if you can learn a lot of them when you are young, but even then, we sometimes have to learn these lessons the hard way, don’t we? As a mom, I find that sometimes it’s nice to have others come […]

Ooka Island – Help your Child Read! ~Giveaway!

Reading. In my opinion, it’s one of the most important things we learn in school. Not just how to read, but to love to read! It’s a pretty easy way of being transported to another place, to other people, to another world. I love to read, as does my husband. He, however, suffers from a […]
