  • Homeschool Typing - Typesy Review

    Typesy – An Online Typing Program Review & Giveaway

    In a homeschool book I read once the author asked her Facebook friends what practical life experiences people felt like they learned from traditional school. Do you know what the majority of the responses were? Typing! ???? That kind of makes me laugh out loud cause, they know you don’t have to go to school to learn to type, right? It’s kind of sad that that was the only practical skill most people could think of.     Raeca is big into writing stories, the other day she started a new one and said “I think reading a lot has made me better at writing stories.” #readingwin She likes to…

    House of Dreams: The Life of L. M. Montgomery – Book Review

    I came across House of Dreams, a biography on L. M. Montgomery a few weeks ago via someone on BookTube and I knew I needed to read it. As a Canadian I am embarrassed to admit that the only Lucy Maud Montgomery book I’ve actually finished is the first book in the Anne of Green Gables series. Just prior to seeing this book I had decided to try to read all of L. M. Montgomery’s books by the end of 2019. Of course, that was before I knew how many she had written but I’m still going to give it a try.     OTHER POSTS YOU MAY ENJOY: Eight…

  • What Should Danny Do? A Book Review

    What Should Danny Do? Review & Giveaway!

    Today I’ve got another book review to share with you! Just a reminder: my book reviews are totally honest, even if I have received the book for free. Unfortunately that means not all of them are glowing reviews. But this one, What Should Danny Do? It’s a glowing review. Oh, and you are going to want to keep reading, because there are giveaway details at the end. The first thing that caught my attention about this book was how it is interactive. Does anyone else remember the Choose Your Own Adventure books? What Would Danny Do Is like the picture book version of a Choose Your Own Adventure! But I don’t…

    Maddi’s Fridge & The Day I Ran Away – Book Reviews

    Every now and then I get the opportunity to share some product reviews here (usually of the book variety). I think it is a great opportunity to give exposure to authors and it’s fun for us to get a chance to read some books we may never have heard of before. I do try to be careful with the reviews that I accept, I only accept ones that sound like they would be a good fit for our family from the beginning and then I am always honest with our reviews. Today I’m going to share about Maddi’s Fridge and The Day I Ran Away, they are both published by…

    Smartick Math – A Review

    About a month ago we were given the opportunity to try out Smartick Math. As much as I like interest-led education and the idea of at least semi-unschooling I do like a bit of structure when it comes to math because I feel like it’s not as easy to be creative with math as it is with other subjects. I figured Raeca would enjoy the program but I wasn’t sure that it would really give appropriate questions to Ephraim (who just turned 4), boy was I wrong! Right from the first day they tried it they were both hooked. Smartick is a little different than some other math programs because they…
