Jingle Bell Painting {Toddler and Preschooler Christmas Craft}

The bright summer sun sits high in the sky, the air is warm perhaps a touch on the hot side, the smell of the sea drifts in and the taste of salt hits my tongue.

Excitement and happiness and a tiny bit of stress are all around. 

It’s Christmas!

The World of Books {Reading with Babies}


Books. They can be one of the first educations a baby has. They can form the first memories a baby has. They can sculpt a baby's first creative streaks. They can show a baby new worlds they could only dream of. But how do we know what books are appropriate for what age?
