Weekend Links

How many times have you had to remind your kids to “pick up their books!” Nicolette from Powerful Mothering has a great post on How To Teach Kids To Care for Books.


The Owl’s Skull has a wonderful and unique post that explores maps from our favorite children’s books: Sketching the Imagined World: Maps in Our Favorite Children’s Books

Never Land

Dolen Diaries has a great Halloween Booklist to help your kiddies get in the mood for the season.

 Be sure and visit BookBoard this week as well. BookBoard is a excellent book subscription service with over 400 unlockable books, Bookboard’s goal is to create motivated readers — as kids read, they’re rewarded by unlocking new books to add to their collections. This system is carefully designed, and proven to motivate and engage. In the words of one parent, it’s “shockingly effective,” so take a look at some of our favorites below and start reading, today or check out their latest bookshelf.
