Juggle and Balance


Bored with the same old books?

Most parents are looking for book recommendations for their kids. Of course, kids are great at picking out their own books, but sometimes they need a little help, too.

Before you head to the library or the bookstore, check out Planet Esme, a very helpful children’s lit resource planetesme.blogspot.com.

Right now she’s featuring books for February’s African American history month and I discovered a gem, a book about Jackie Robinson that I think my daughter will love (called Testing the Ice: A True Story about Jackie Robinson.) She’ll love the art and she’s in a “this is a true story?” stage.

Esme is a former teacher and the blog has amazing info for parents and teachers alike.  I also ran across some fun grandparent-themed books….one on a nana detective looks like serious fun.

This is Evan and I think that this book about Jackie Robinson would be good for my brother. My brother loves baseball and loves stats and history.

I have a brother like that, too. There’s something about baseball….and it’s almost baseball season.
