Picture books inspiring nature study: Over and Under the Pond & Up in the Garden and Down in the Dirt {BOOK REVIEWS}
Lately, we have really been longing for spring. Longing to feel the warm sun on our faces, smell blossoms on the flowering trees, and feel the soft, cool dirt in our hands. We are so looking forward to spending time outside and seeing LIFE again! What better way to await the arrival of spring than …
Why We Love The Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally Lloyd-Jones
It’s no secret that I love The Jesus Storybook Bible. It’s been a part of our family since my oldest was tiny, and her sisters are also growing up on these gentle, beautifully told Bible stories.  It was originally published the year my oldest was born, and I’m so glad that my children are a …
Favourite Reviews of 2016 - my favourite products, books & curriculum reviews from this past year
A great blessing and privilege of being a blogger, and especially a homeschool blogger, is having the opportunity to do reviews. After counting all of my reviews from 2016 I was amazed that I had completed 22! These were books, curriculum, digital subscriptions, and games — and while some of these products weren’t a great fit …
I can still remember the freshness of the very first time I ever read through the Bible. Everything was so new to me! I could easily spend an hour reading the word, taking notes, being totally in awe of all that I was discovering about the Lord Jesus within those precious pages. That was just …
Step into history with Carole P. Roman's If You Were Me and Lived in ... history books!
Today I’m sharing with you about a fun book series that will help your children step right into history by imagining that they they are a part of it. This is by far my children’s favourite way of relating to history — they just love to use what they are learning and explore other lands, cultures, …
Every Day with God: 365 Daily Devos for Girls is a short and sweet daily devotional for young girls. From the day we received it, my 5 year old has been carrying it around both in the house and away from home. She’s tickled pink to have her own daily devotional just like her big …
For Better or for Kids - a vow to love your spouse with kids in the house {BOOK REVIEW}
With divorce rates hovering around the 50% mark (and some say this stat is accurate even among Christians), we would all be wise to stand up and take notice. It surrounds us everywhere: in our neighborhoods, families, and yes, even our churches. Despite what the fairy tales may have led us to believe, happily ever …
Give Your Child the World {Review} This book provides a great list of living books from around the world
Jamie Martin knows a thing or two about raising a global family — with members from four different nationalities (and continents!), she likens hers to a mini United Nations. She’s also a book loving, homeschool mom and blogger, so who better to write a book about giving children a global perspective through reading your way around …
Hey Mama! Schoolhouse Planner Review
I’ve never been much of a planner and I’ve certainly never felt the need to create a day by day, lesson by lesson plan for my homeschool. As far as homeschool planning strategies go, I’ve always had my feet firmly planted in the “do the next thing” camp. The calendar on my fridge and the …
Baby Wren and the Great Gift {BOOK REVIEW}
Baby Wren and the Great Gift is the latest book by the much loved Sally Lloyd-Jones, author of our family favourite, The Jesus Storybook Bible. We just love Lloyd-Jones around here! We read from her Bible storybook daily, and have also greatly appreciated her children’s devotional, Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing, and more recently …
