Art meets history. I have never been to D.C. and our daughter has not been there either so most of what the book has we know nothing of. Never the less it does not hinder the learning in anyway. When I do not know of a monument or whatever it is I look it up and then explain it in a way that our daughter can easily understand. Some of the pages in the book are very simple. All the student needs to do is simply draw what is asked or copy a piece of US history. Since our daughter loves to draw she quite enjoys this book. If you are looking for something to enhance your history or art class then this would be a wonderful little book to get.
We have been trying out a lot of new baby items this year and here is another one we did not have for our first daughter. It is called Sensory Tissue Box . What makes this toy so much fun? Let's be honest babies love to get into things. We have tried before to let her play with a regular box of tissues. Big mess. The tissues were everywhere and they have like 250 tissues in a box, she torn them up to so an even bigger mess. Our daughter even went as far as to rip the box itself up. This sensory tissue box though is made of very soft fabric so she can not tear it up, it has 15 tissues so less to keep track of and the tissue can not be easily torn up either. This is the biggest positive of this sensory box in my opinion. Another positive to having this sensory tissue box instead of a regular one is that the tissues are different colors and sizes as well as having different textures to them. There are 6 see-through ones, 6 see-through ones that have dots on them and 3 crinkly ones. T
