Here’s a timely post from the Two Twenty One blog which will help insure that our precious little ones are kept safe. What do you think of this idea?
“We’re implementing the left shoe trick this summer. After buckling Owen into his car seat, I take off my left shoe and put it on the backseat. The idea is that I won’t get very far without my shoe. While I’d like to think I’d never forget my baby in a hot car, all these cases in recent years scare the crap out of me. (No judgmental comments, please. This trick is meant to be helpful.)”
Here’s a series you’ve probably seen before, and with good reason. The That’s Not My… series is full of delightful touchy-feely board books that have been favorites among young children and their parents for many years. With bright colors and tactile inserts to smooth your fingers over, it’s no wonder Usborne keeps introducing new ones. Even adults can’t resist rubbing the pages to feel the textures.
If you don’t own more than one of these titles, you’ve probably checked them out from your library again and again. And did you know there’s a white mouse to find on every page? Keep a few of these on hand for those last-minute gifts. With so many to choose from, there’s something to tickle any kid’s fancy.
Let me know if you have questions.
