Book Review: The Warmth of Other Suns

This review is in honor of Martin Luther King Jr Day 2012. In the 17 years that I’ve lived here I’ve tried to learn more about American history.

More Books for Tween Boys

In the post-apocalyptic world which Collins so vividly describes in the Hunger Games all of these Read the Rest…

Highs And Lows Of Traveling With A Teen And A Tween

Take Your Kid To Work Day is this week (April 28th to be exact). My blogger-buddy, Mummy-T (from TravelsWithANineYearOld) suggested that some of us traveling parents join in with the fun – even though many of us aren’t currently working – and write about traveling full-time with our kids instead.
