  • Ruby’s School Walk – A Wonderful Book For Kindergarten!
    Tweet I have drooled over the books covers by Barefoot Books before but sadly never got to read or buy any. It may just be because I am too lazy to go out of the norm to buy books – I usually get books from Borders, BN, Amazon and the school’s Scholastic lists. Anyway as chance would have it being a blogger means I get to explore things I may not approach...

  • Meet Lynn Maslen, Author And Managing Partner At Bob Books Publications!
    Tweet I love educational books. I do. It must be the geek in me. Needless to say the fact that my daughters are early readers and love books too thrills me to bits. We use early reading material in my home – but as fun. I don’t believe you can, or should, force a child to learn. Children learn at their own pace and I think making them not hate learning is...

  • Reading To Your Baby Yet?
    Tweet I am not talking about getting out the GRE books while still pregnant, but it is a no-brainer that talking and reading to your baby does make an impact. Children are sponges so it is indeed an honor to give them appropriate material to soak in. Education is a very passionate subject to me so I love being a part of anything to deal with it. I know it is difficult...

  • The Power To Help Education With $10,000 !
    Tweet [ CLICK HERE TO POST YOUR IDEAS BY SEPT 1st TO WIN $10,000 FOR A SCHOOL] I was at a party recently and friends asked me what do I do with stuff I get through blogging (from attending parties/events and reviews) and I replied I give it away.

  • Post Your Ideas by Sept 1st | That’s Ingenious Challenge: $10,000 For School Charity
    Tweet WHAT? You already read about my iRobot tour so you would have got a feel for the company behind the That’s Ingenious challenge. Then you would have read my feature on Donor’s Choose (the charity promoting education) and you could see clearly why iRobot would have chosen them to be the charity of choice. Luckily Mommy Niri was chosen as a LeadHer (one...

  • That’s Ingenious: Donors Choose – The Charity Helping Teachers Focus on Education!
    Tweet As we learned, through the iRobot That’s Ingenious project, of $10,000 being the prize money for charity, we also learned that it was going to be through Donors Choose. I hate to admit that I had never heard of Donors Choose before this project and when I learned of them I was amazed that such an organization existed. I have to admit I normally don’t...

  • Reading Is For All Seasons!
    Tweet Anyone who knows me, knows I am a strong proponent of education and reading. I grew up on the adage it is ok not to to have food (and at times we did not) but education was not debatable. To many it sounds like just a phrase about the power of education but having personally seen the drastic impact education has in life I will never take it for granted. Along...

  • Grant The Gift Of Reading!
    Tweet Speaking as a mom of early readers and an avid lover of reading (I only wish my reading list contained something other than children stories, but then again my music selection also suffers the same fate), I strongly believe in the importance of reading (the earlier the introduction to books the better). When my 3 year old daughter showed a keen interest in numbers...

  • Providing The Tools For Early Readers
    Tweet Having a daughter who has kept us on our toes with the speed with which she learns stuff meant I have always been on the lookout for the tools to help me. Essential tools (workbooks, reading books, media and cards) from the fanciest bookstore to dollar stores, has been explored. Brands like Leap Frog, Kumon and Hooked On Phonics have always been highly regarded....
