I distinctly remember when I was going into the third grade and so excited to start learning Latin, only to find out public schools no longer taught Latin.
My children and I are enjoying learning Latin together. The 3 year old does the amo chant and says,”Deus made the terra out of nihil!”
The audio tracks are helpful for pronunciation and the vocabulary stories make the words easier to remember.
We also use the flash cards. I print them when we move on to another week.
Most of my kids aren’t able to do the worksheets and quizzes but it’s easy enough to quiz them verbally.
We spend as much time as we need in each week. We take about a month per week and review the past vocabulary words to keep them fresh.
I definitely recommend this curriculum.
My kids love singing blah blah black sheep 😂
It IS abrupt at “ just be a normal sheep”. I think that’s the point though. It stands out and gives you pause.
It’s a great reminder to consider how God had made our children and not to be a fussy auntie sheep type.
We love reading good books to our kids. Thanks for making this one
It was okay. I expected better from Nate. If there's any level of sibling rivalry to stoke, you guys should know that Cranky Danky Dragon takes a much higher standing in our household.
Dickenson's illustrations are on point.
I listened to the audiobook on Canon+ and I'm keeping the physical book pages fresh for my daughter (it's a Christmas gift). This is an energetic, earnest, and deeply researched book set in a dystopian future that begs the reader to see the true value of human life. It was a page turner for sure, but it also wasn't without literary beauty or characterization. I was very impressed by Newell's first published book and hope to read more in the future.
As a young man I was reckless at times and could be dangerous to myself and others. When I got married much of that changed rather quickly. I have seen this in other men. Guilders book also made sense of what I see in the culture and also what I saw in my studies as a sociology major. Almost every problem in society was said to be about wealth, class status, gender and education disparity. And the solutions to these problems were always tax the people who work and give it to those who won’t. I always knew that seemed shortsighted and incomplete and most likely incorrect. George Gilder explains why. The reason is that men don’t serve society well when we do not ask them and expect them to feed their families and build a society. This is a must read
The paper is nice and thick, it will survive longer than other picture books. The art is so pretty, and the story is sweet. Exited for the show!
I bought the book as my nephew's Christmas present and almost kept it. The art is wonderful and it seems like there's more to find each time. The story is perfect for a young boy or even adults looking for a fun story.
The book is charming and the illustrations are perfect. Imaginations are given free reign, but the kids and dad are responsible enough to clean up the mess that active imaginations can cause.
Not a fan of corduroy but my wife agreed that there is a resemblance between myself and a muskox; especially as my ears continue to grow.
I wear it often and enjoy the questions. I just wish it wasn’t so cold outside right now.
My 2 year old son reaches for this book multiple times a day. The illustrations are great and the story is enjoyable enough that I don’t mind reading it over and over. We have had great fun making extra sound effects and doing re-enactments when we aren’t reading. It’s a keeper!
This book is decent and I have no real objections. But Doug Wilson’s Fun Dad book is way better. Similar theme and has a much higher kid request rating.
If this is Gwen's first novel, then sign me up for all the ones to come after! Excellent. Gripping. Engaging. And full of truth.
I appreciate the idea of the Blah Blah character but the principle struggled to materialize through the book. Characters, setting and basic plot were revealed - I feel like I just paid for a printed version of the trailer for the show.
This book was written by a steady hand and a sober mind. Reading is conducive to acquiring a steady hand and sober mind. Many Thanks
I admit, I'm slow to see the deeper meanings in kids' stories, but this one finally sunk in - especially since my 5yo asks to read it every day. :-) Beautiful illustrations, fun text, great story.
