There are many amazing museums for children throughout the U.S. I had the pleasure of visiting one of them on a recent trip to Madison, Wisconsin. The museum is an oddly rectangular shaped, three story building that sits on the corner of Hamilton and E. Mifflin streets. Beside the building is a cute "Harry Potterish" array of street signs pointing in various directions. On the first floor of the museum is the admissions desk, cafe, gift shop, and play area for smaller kids. On the second and third floors there are numerous fun exhibits, games, and creative centers for your... Continue reading

I am always on the lookout for new healthy foods and snacks. I ran across these wonderful little fruit crackers that make the perfect nutritious treats for kids. Simple and Crisp is a company based in Seattle, Washington that markets these dehydrated fruit crisps. The crisps are crunchy, light, tasty, and fun to look at. They are made of 100% fruit that is thinly sliced with the rind on for extra fiber. A little organic cane suger is added for taste. The crisps are also gluten-free. There are four different flavors: apple, orange, pear, and blood orange. To make great... Continue reading

The yearn for entrepreneurship does not have to be delayed until adulthood or even young adulthood. Kids under the age of eighteen are feeling the entrepreneurial pull for various reasons. Some teens start businesses because of financial necessity. College tuition continues to increase, while parents' salaries and state funding continue to decrease. More kids are having to depend on themselves for extras, such as cars, clothes, books, and entertainment. Jobs that have traditionally been held by teens are now going to unemployed adults, creating a greater need for youngsters to get creative. Other kids go in to business because they...

The Usborne book "See Inside Your Body" is a wonderful tool that will help young children understand how their bodies function. It is richly illustrated and beautifully designed to capture children's attention. The pages are made of a thick, cardboard type material that does not bend, and cannot be ripped out. Inside are brightly colored pictures of the human body as a whole, and then broken down into important organs. Children are introduced to 15 topics about their body: (1) Your Amazing Body, (2) Eating and Excreting, (3) Breathing Air, (4) Pumping Blood, (5) Bones and Muscles, (6) Brain Power,...

This Christmas (past) I had the wonderful pleasure of experiencing Stone Mountain Christmas. Stone Mountain Park is located on Stone Mountain, which is 15 miles outside of Atlanta, Georgia. The mountain itself spans more than 5 miles in circumference at its base, and 1,686 feet in elevation. From the summit of the mountain you can see great views of the Atlanta skyline and Kennesaw Mountain. On clear days , you can even see the Appalachian Mountains. The mountain has a rich history of occupation; from the Creek and Cherokee Native Americans, to early European explorers, and granite quarry workers. Stone... Continue reading

Christmas has always been my favorite time of year. Riding around looking at Christmas lights is something I have looked forward to every year since I was a child. My mother and grandmother would pile me and my siblings into the car and drive for hours through various neighborhoods. Still today, I marvel at how strings of sparkling lights and colorful yard decorations can turn ordinary, and even low income neighborhoods into magical wonderlands. Even the houses whose decorations are over the top are still fun to look at. I would try to look through windows into some of the... Continue reading

I work as a flight attendant for a major U.S. based airline. On almost every flight I see mistakes that parents make when flying with their children, which result in a not so pleasant experience for the whole family. Being aware of these mistakes might help you prepare for a great airplane ride with your kids. Your fellow passengers will love you for it! Mistake No. 1 - Not Bringing Children's Favorite Snacks. Most airlines offer a small snack of some sort, but it's usually not fit for kids; peanuts, pretzels, and some times cookies (no chocolate chips or oreos),... Continue reading

The covers alone would make me want to snuggle up under a warm blanket and read them. They are all beautiful. Thanks for the list.

These are hilarious! There are three that compete for first place; "Happy Birthday Adam with Blue Flowers", "Best Wishes Suzanne Under Neat That We Will Miss You", and "Happy Birthday Sheri with an eye". Mommy Shorts at least your cake is very pretty. I love the butterflies.
Oh my this brings back so many memories....Nancy Drew was absolutely my favorite, but I also read the Saddle Club books, Narnia, and Judy Blume. Many of the other titles are new to me. I wonder is it possible to still find them? The boarding school series, Malory Towers and The Twins at St. Clare especially sound like wonderful reading.

These are beautiful pictures. I love the ones showing the kids playing together. Ethan seems to be fascinated with his little sis. Hopefully that will last. I love the name Felicity.

I am a avid reader of books...all genres of books. It doesn't matter to me if I'm being swept away by a romantic novel, a revealing biography, or a facts filled history book. I simply love to read. I had a recent conversation with a gentlemen who observed me reading the acclaimed book "The Help"...wonderfully written and plotted...I will add. This gentlemen very snobbishly said to me "if you're going to spend your time and your money reading, then make sure it's worthwhile reading." I responded with "I take it you don't consider fiction worthwhile reading." "That is correct," he... Continue reading
