LeapStart Interactive Learning Success Bundle

As a parent, we struggle from time to time to curate a child’s day with meaningful activities.  It is easier to fall into the rabbit hole of “screen time” along with our daily grind of life, in general.  Even with the best intentions we may fall short and sometimes feel guilty about our decisions managing screen time.  I am always looking out for creative options to engage my child, which led me to LeapFrog‘s   LeapStart® Learning Success Bundle™.  So, why does screen time restriction warrant attention and is it really important to pause and think?  Yes indeed!

Why Should You Consider Learning a Second Language?

Learning languages has numerous cognitive benefits that are undeniable. Research suggests that people who know multiple languages have higher memory, problem-solving, and critical-thinking skills, as well as greater concentration, multitasking ability, and listening skills.

Exploring Faith & Science with Indescribable Kids

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way. The Wonder of Creation: 100 More Devotions About God and Science I admire how Indescribable Kids & Co. has combined faith and science in this new book. Science fascinates our children, and they constantly question, “Why?” about everything.  My son’s questions seem to be never ending!  This book attempts to address such questions and in the process, it also teaches some basic science.
