Because I know my kids like jokes, I thought it would be fun to review Lots of Knock-Knock Jokes for Kids. Some of the jokes were cute. Some, typical of knock-knock jokes, were kind of silly and pointless. However, I have to keep in mind that they ARE knock-knock jokes.

Eileen Spinelli has written an absolutely delightful book: Thankful. The description on the book jacket says the following: "Beloved children's author Eileen Spinelli and illustrator Archie Preston inspire children of all ages with Thankful, a whimsical picture book that celebrates the everyday blessings we find in our lives." This book is, indeed, whimsical and inspirational.

A few weeks ago, I participated in an online homeschool curriculum e-book sale. As a result, I received a lot of really good online offers. As a result of some of those offers, I found myself on some e-mail lists (of course). One of the e-mail lists eventually pointed me to Kids in the Word. WHAT A GREAT WEBSITE!!! Per the "about" section on this blog, "Kids in the Word exists to inspire, encourage, and equip parents to instill a love for God and the Bible in their kids.

Christmas is a big deal in our house. I love to take the entire month of December to do various Advent activities that lead up to the cumulative event of celebrating Jesus's birth. So, I'm always looking for great resources to use towards this end. My search is now over; I have found the ultimate family Advent devotional.

I have been looking for a great family resource that prepares our hearts for the monumental event we tend to call Easter, although “Resurrection Sunday” is a more appropriate title for the Christian holiday. Anyway, I was excited when I first heard about Why Easter? by Barbara Reaoch. This absolutely wonderful devotional has four full weeks of devotional lessons to help families prepare their hearts for Easter.

Baby, it's cold outside. Here in New York, the average temperate is well below zero degrees Fahrenheit. However, cuddling up on the sofa with my kids and a good book is a great way to stay warm. (Of course, also picture a blazing fire in the nearby fireplace, cups of hot cocoa nearby, and our two cats curled up in our laps or on the floor.)
