Princess Joy Sticker and Activity Book Review

The Princess Joy Sticker and Activity Book is short, colourful and glossy.  This little story workbook is for girls ages four through eight.  It's from Zondervan's Princess Parables series and oh, my, is it ever cute.  It's well worth the $3.99 list price. 

Rose is happily working on the activities as I type this.  She insisted on reading the entire thing right away, and I can already tell the activities are right at her level or perhaps a fair bit on the easy side.  (But then again, she's seven, toward the upper limit of the target audience.)  Between Omar Aranda's perfectly pretty illustrations and the very girlish style of the book, your little princess will enjoy it as well.

Rightfully it oughtn't be called a book, however.  It's a short, glossy workbook with a bit of a storyline and activities.  It has a Christian "birthday party" theme.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review.

  1. Sounds good, I often buy children's books, if I like the pictures or activities, always handy if you have little visitors.

    1. I just popped an order in for one of the companion books, little "Rose" likes this one so much. So I'll let you know if it's the same good quality in a few weeks. :)

  2. I won't get this one for my great nephew, he's a boy...
    I did order "The Day is Waiting" and it arrived this morning, so I had a quick read. I'll package it together with Dr Seuss, "Oh The Places You'll Go" for his birthday in September. Last Christmas I gave him bookends shaped like pirates, now he just needs books to put between them. That will take care of gifts for then next eight or ten years.

Reading Curriculum: ABeka Book and BJU Press

Did you know that in the state of Missouri, homeschoolers must teach reading as a separate subject?  I don't know how anyone could homeschool well without teaching their child to read... but OK. 

I got many of my ABeka books used and collected them over time.  I'm glad I came across these readers early in my homeschooling years.  It teaches children to read step-by-step.  I don't think I've seen a more effective reading program for the elementary years.  The children love the stories, and what I appreciate about them is that there is a rich and varied language even in simple-to-read books in this series. 

My set is pretty old, and some are even from the 1960's and no longer listed in the reading series.  I think if I had to do things over again somehow, I think I'd just spend on a curriculum set and be done with it.  That's the thing, though, with homeschooling.  By the time you figure out what the perfect curriculum is for you, your children have graduate…

Holiday Gifts for the Homeschool Teacher!

Merrymaking hint:  leave this post up on your phone/ computer for your family to "accidentally" find!  Let the magic begin!

 All teachers love a little appreciation every now and then, including homeschoolers.   I don't know about you, though, but I don't want any apple crap.  So first rule:  no apple crap! 

Otherwise I'm pretty open.  I love getting gifts, even if it's just something small or simple.  One thing I love is when my children want to help out and make lunch or clean up or put their laundry away.  Or just behave themselves and get their math done.  This is a really big thing when you think about it.  

And from the adults in my life, the gift of coffee always shows love - or rather, someone not wanting an "I need coffee" emergency in the middle of winter after a big snowstorm.  Somehow, I always have a lot of coffee in my pantry during the winter months.  (Guess why.) Thanks, D!

Homeschooling is NOT So Hard.

I wish I'd have known this starting out. I wish I'd have known that it's actually LESS work to just homeschool your child, than to be an "involved parent" at school.

We've enjoyed elementary school with our older boys. *Most* of the teachers were actually pretty competent and caring (the others, I save for another blog post, another day...). We had the children involved in extra activities like the Spanish Club or Service Club, or choir, and they got a fair bit out of the experience.

But it's a LOT of work.

You get about a ton of worksheets that must be done by a certain time. Usually on a day when you're sick or have no time. You get the phone calls about this or that, and about a zillion sheets per day that sometimes contain important news, so you MUST go through them daily. The schools also *love* to throw in half days, teacher in-service days and early dismissals. Not so bad, unless you have children at more than one school and the schedu…
