These are a few of my favorite things……

This is one of my favorite children books! My youngest daughter loves this book and my older children also enjoyed it when they were younger.  This book is fun and funny—at least the kiddies will think so and it can be used as an aid when teaching time. The story is about a group of monkeys that continually bother Mr. Crocodile, who in turn, decides to concoct a plan to rid himself of those pesky little monkeys.  I won’t give away the ending, but for those of you who have not had the pleasure of reading this book, no worries the ending is kid-friendly!

This is one of my favorite quotes and as it relates to children and education, I believe in order for our children to be successful in life, it is extremely important that we (parents and educators) go beyond just preparing them for tests.  If our children are to become our future leaders and assets to our society, it is essential that we equip them with the necessary “tools” to help them survive and thrive—-even after school.
