    Learn With Me: Early Literacy from A to Z Early literacy is more than just reading, talking and singing with your child. What you say and share has just as much impact as how it’s delivered. Whether its through books, conversations or jokes, a shared and diverse mix of activities and interactions with young children can shape the way they see, interpret and understand the world around them.

  • Sci-fi TBRorange and blue rocketship on a black background covered in stars

    January is apparently known as National Book Month! January 2nd is National Sci-fi Day. So I've decided to combine the 2 and recommend you some awesome Sci-fi reads for your 2019 "To Be Read" list. I've never really been into sci-fi, but for 2019 I think my resolution should be to branch out and read a little bit out of my comfort zone. I promise to read at least one of these sci-fi books in 2019.
