Life with kids can mean little time for personal reading, but some of the latest editions in our house are “Parenting From the Inside Out,” “Animals – A Visual Encyclopedia” and “All The World”.
“Parenting from the Inside Out” – “This book uniquely pairs the clinical experience of a psychiatrist with the deep wisdom of a nursery school teacher. Together Siegel and Hartzell delicately peel back the many layers of parenting to reveal the pure nature of the relationship
at its core.”- Neal Halfon, M.D.
“Animals – A Visual Encyclopedia” – Our children, ages ranging from one year old to seven, all love this great encyclopedia filled with great photos and facts about animals.
“All The World” – A sweet bedtime story that touches on the simple things in life. We love the illustrations.
For those days when you just cant seem to break your child’s bad mood, there is nothing like a bit of silliness to brighten their day and yours. David Weinstone’s song “Grumpy” is sure to get a giggle out of a little grump and as a parent you cant help but love the lyrics, “If you want to be a grump, that’s okay, but could you be grumpy kinda further away, its not that I don’t love you cause you know I do, sometimes I’m grumpy too!”
For best results, we recommend singing it with your children at the top of your lungs!
As the weather continues to cool, we parents sometimes need a little inspiration for indoor play. The Crafty Crow is an online collective of craft project found on weblogs of creative people who either have, or work with, children. Its extensive category list helps you navigate through the website with options starting from children’s ages to seasonal craft projects.
We love the ideas of reusing basic household items that are usually thrown away like this plastic lid hanging mosaic and these adorable cardboard tube marionettes. Visit Crafty Crow and start your indoor family fun!
