“Que Divina!” I loved the Babel Animalitos T-shirt from the moment I saw it. The t-shirt comes in pink and blue and features three pairs of animalitos “speaking” in both English and Spanish.

I have been looking for a way to explain Thanksgiving to my children this year.  While I love the cute stories about turkeys, I was hoping to provide my sons with a more meaningful and historical understanding of this American holiday. The Scholastic Storybook Treasures Giving Thanks…And More Stories to Celebrate American Heritage is a great way to introduce American history to children.  This DVD includes four stories “Lincoln & Douglass:  An American Friendship” which is narrated by Danny Glover,Read More ...
