Review: My Very First Reading Library

This is an outstanding collection of first readers by Usborne. You get 50 engaging books for your little aspiring reader. They gradually increase in difficulty and the back of each book has notes for the parent/teacher to guide them in teaching how to read. What I love best about these books is that they have puzzles after you finish the story. It really makes for a diligent young reader.


The books start out with you reading with your child. I enjoy this for 2 reasons; they don’t get burnt out trying to read a whole book by themselves and it’s a amazing bonding opportunity. Then they move onto reading alone with assistance from you. Eventually your little one reads on their own with little to no help. I also like that they are small so it’s easy to take them on the go. 


I highly recommend this set of reader for anyone who has a young kiddo starting to read or to help a child who is struggling with reading. Usborne has a bunch of other adorable books for all ages. The books in this collection are not very long so if you are short on time these are great way to squeeze in reading. No better way to start or end your day then cuddling up with your kids having story time.

  1. How fun! I could have used these a couple years ago.

  2. I love Usborne's approach with these early readers of including a line for the parent to read and then a line for the emerging reader. I found this kind of tag team reading was highly motivational for my kids.

  3. What a great way to give a child the confidence to become a good reader! This is a fantastic idea.

Review: Djeco So Pop

Our daughter loves arts and crafts. Djeco So Pop is another amazing art project that she had a blast doing. I got it through Timberdoodle and it also comes with their PreK Curriculum Kit. The kit comes with 4 different projects and all the pieces you need to put them together. This particular kit came with little envelopes for each project that had sequence in them so I popped out each item for the projects and put them in the envelopes so everything would be ready go when do each one. Djeco also give you a glue stick so you can glue the pieces on the boards but I have found the glue they provide isn’t that great so instead we use hot glue.


What I really like about Djeco art kits is that they give you a little booklet that shows where to put each piece on the boards. It shows you through pictures so if your child doesn’t read yet it’s not a problem. Easy for a young kid to follow and great for the parent because you don’t have to read a lengthy instruction book. 

I’d definitely recomm…

Keeping Organized

Between homeschool, pet care, house cleaning and cooking it’s important to stay organized. How do I organize my homeschool curriculum? Well the main bulk is in a big container, the items I use multiple times a week I have in a utility tote, books I actually store in old Pull-Up boxes and for art supplies, flash cards and little games I keep them in a rolling container.



As for our pets and house cleaning, I have an amazing planner. What I love about this planner is that I was able to customize everything. The covers, layout and even add list like birthdays were all customized to my liking. The birthday list is awesome because the dates are already printed on that day and even lets me know how old people are. I write in my cleaning schedule, which is pretty simple. I clean 1 room a day, dishes everyday and laundry 4 times a week. I write in what days my pets get their baths or need something health wise. 

Cooking is probably the part I hate most. Having to figure out what we’ll eat 3 ti…
