Hi Kelly --
I've enjoyed using Little Blue and Little Yellow, Harold's ABC, and books
that relate to the lesson that I get from the school library -- like
age-appropriate stuff on Egyptian art/life, or castles, or the Renaissance,
etc. I've found lots of good books at the public library too -- then if I
really like something I can buy it for myself later. Even out of print
books can be found ( got me a great one that had been out of
print for a few decades....) that way I don't have a bunch of books that I
thought would be good that I don't actually end up using. Welcome to
elementary -- it's a blast and incredibly rewarding
