My 4.5 year old craves exploring and learning about the world. As much as I'd love to fire up the iPad every time my child desires to learn more about a topic about which I have little depth of knowledge, I can't. It isn't responsible of me. It isn't what I want for my family. Do you?
I won't lie to you. I have a dirty secret.I love YouTube, like “drool” love YouTube.
When my children wanted to learn more about The Big Bang, I couldn't find the words. So, I fired up Youtube to seek out the talent I needed to help me guide my children in this way.
It is not my default. It can't be my default.
Avoid Firing Up the iPad – Learning about the World
Are you ready for my real secret?
No? Okay, I'll wait…here is a hint.
Books. Yup. Not just ANY books, though. Have you heard of Usborne Books & More? Please do yourself a favor, check out Usborne Books & More. I recently got my hands on four books that have rocked my child's learning to a whole new level. He adore these books. He won't put them down. I am so impressed with these books, below you'll find more details on why I think Usborne is an opportunity not to be missed. These books cover art, history, science, geography, and culture, a perfect start to our learning about the world. The base for our learning this fall and winter.
