Carson-Dellosa Learning Books

I loved workbooks when I was a kid.


My own kids, not so much.


So, if I’m going to use workbooks, I use them sparingly and only ones withengaging illustrations, pages that aren’t too long, and useful skills.

C.S. Lewis
“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.”
C.S. Lewis

“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.”
Albert Einstein

Melissa Most recently, I really liked the Thirteenth Tale. Have you read the Other Boleyn Sister, that was very interesting and compelling!


Triffany Thanks for the add! I'm in between books right now, which of yours would you recommend?
