Posted by: | 24 Comments

Great news from Putumayo Kids: they’ve expanded their children’s music line to include Africa, Europe and Latin America coloring books and sticker collections as part of their new World Culture books.

Vanessa, el nombre de mi hija, significa mariposa. No wonder she loves them so much.

My daughter just experienced her first Scholastic Book Fair at school. I volunteered to work the fair a couple of days, not only because I wanted to help, but also because I wanted to see her in action. And, it was just as I expected, she was in book heaven!
