    Children’s Book of the Week: Explode The Code primers

    This week’s book of the week is different from normal. Usually I post about books we are readying; however, this week I’m talking about a series of books I’ve been using to teach DJ how to write and phonics. The books are Explode The Code primers by Nancy Hall. There are three books in total. They’re the primer books for her Explode the Code series.  I really wanted DJ to get a head start on learning how to write and say his letters correctly before Kindergarten started. Originally, I was doing them every single day. However, COVID got in the way. David started working from home, and things needed to be shifted…

    Children’s Book of the Week: The Bad Seed

    It’s time for another children’s book of the week! This week I’m going to be sharing The Bad Seed written by Jory John & illustrated Pete Oswald. As usual, I have this book through Kindle Unlimited. Sign up and get your first month free! The Bad Seed is definitely a bedtime favorite for DJ. Not only is the illustration gorgeous, but we love the story. DJ loves yelling, “I’M A BAAAAAD SEED!” This book follows a “bad” seed. He starts off by explaining all the bad things he does. In addition, he explains why he is the way he is. He told us his life story, and why he became a “bad” seed.…

    Welcome to day five of Blogmas! I’m sure it is not surprise I love books. That’s why I do a book of the week almost every week.

    Children’s Book of the Week: Neon Tiki Tribe

    I’m back with another book of the week. Actually, this is a set of thirteen books. I was actually sent these books, but was not to do a review or anything in return for them. However, I really wanted to share these books with you. I think these books would be a great present for any child. It doesn’t matter if you have read it to them or if they read. First, I wanted to mention that they use a specific font for dyslexic readers called Dyslexie. If you ask me that is amazing. Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links.
