If you haven't heard about the method of four the concept is simple you give your children something they want, something they need, something to play with, and Something To Read! If you're looking for books to help you cover the something to read for your child then let me introduce you to some new titles from National Geographic Kids that will work well for young readers in your family!

Are you looking for ways to build the excitement for Christmas with your children? My kids seem to have loads of excitement but I enjoy creating an atmosphere of excitement and joy around the holidays. We're some of those crazy people that have already been listening to Christmas music, but really it was the snow that caused me to get into the spirit of the season. If you could see our book shelves then you would know how much we love to read. The kids seem to have way more space on the shelf than I do these days, but I don't mind. I love encouraging their joy for reading and the love of books! We were excited to receive The Magic Christmas Ornament Collection book and ornament set. Read more about it below and enter for a chance to win the set for your family!
