Good afternoon and evening! I’m running late this week as we have had some special visitors fly in, but I didn’t want to leave you hanging without your weekly dose of great books! This week you’ll find one my children’s favourite subjects: art. Have a look through the stacks and I’m sure you’ll find something that will appeal to your children. From learning about the great artists around the world, to learning to become artists themselves (see this post for our favourite art program ever). So until next week, enjoy a great read, and have a wonderful weekend!
And as life would have it when you’re a little behind….the internet isn’t playing nice tonight and I cannot create a feature photo! I’ll add one in tomorrow if the monkeys are back in business – I guess they don’t want to work for peanuts anymore.

The most clicked-on post from last week’s linky (Butterflies) was this post by Our Unschooling Journey Through Life with some great unschooling ideas for all subjects. After all, we all need a little break from strict education from time to time, and this is one way to achieve that.
