I found this great site, GreatSchools.org , with extensive reading lists specific to each grade. If your child is finishing up their summer reading and still needs a book or two, this is a great resource.
As my husband and I struggle to pack lunches and snacks for our kids’ camp lunches, I find myself wandering the grocery store aisles searching for healthy choices that my kids will actually eat.
DesignTrackMind asked me to post on this topic and I thought, “Gee, I wish I knew myself.” She said that she is asking me, not because I have all the answers, but because she knows that I will go crazy and do all the research. So, I did do that, and here it is. And may we all raise confident kids because the world would be a better place if we did.
This is a cute rhyming iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch ebook app by StoryBoy.net that my 5-year-old son really liked.
This is a nice blog with tagline: Where Grandmas Bond, Brag and Benefit. Don’t you just love that? Here, Pam Allyn, share her love of books with her granddaughter — a love that helps create sense of empathy, create a sense of community and indulge a child’s imagination. Thanks for the great post!

In short, the iPhone/iPad/iPod ebook, The Birthday, is a delightful ebook and my five-year-old son really loved it a lot! I highly recommend it for the little ones, ages 2-5.
Happy Birthday United States on this 4th of July! To celebrate with picture books, I hope you enjoy two picks with an Asian twist. Both families are immigrants from China. The children in each book , like all children of immigrants, straddle between two worlds trying to be “more-American-like-their-friends” while immersed in the culture and traditions from their home country. But what is lovely in both these books is an acceptance that there is no one correct way to celebrate being an American. This is a homage to the United States of America, the great melting pot nation. Happy Birthday!
This is ebook is not interactive but the story is so cute and the narration so lovely that it will be a hit with any little girl who insists on wearing only pink. There is a sticker application also that lets you move cute round pick “stickers” to your photo album so you print out at another time. The illustrations for this book (and ebook) are also lovely.
