Preschool Book Line-up and Give-away

One of the benefits of being a homeschool blogger with four kids in different stages of life (preschool through high school) is book reviews.

You can’t have preschoolers without play. In fact, play should make up about 80% of your “schooling”, because it’s God’s built-in learning system for children.

OK. So you may not like musicals. I can understand that. I’ve seen some doozies in my time. That may be why you haven’t seen Les Miserables. At least that’s what I have heard from some of my friends. So let me try to convince you that you need to give it a chance. Don’t […]
