Teaching My Baby To Read

Grandma Buy This!


Every birthday and Christmas my mother-in-law and mom graciously ask me what they should get my kids for gifts.  Inwardly, I’m usually thinking “Please not another light saber or stuffed animal!”  But the items that would actually be most helpful for the grandmas to fund, are a lot harder to describe without sounding like an educational freak-show.

So make me sound like the crazy one, and send this page to your own mother or mother-in-law this Christmas.

    I just finally passed on all my Leapfrog fridge magnet contraptions to a friend for her daughter. They were awesome! I would add to your Story of the World suggestions the associated activity books. I think the books are so much better and more memorable when you’re doing the crafts at the same time. I can’t wait to pick up where we left off with the Ancients this summer!
