John Stossel Is Unavailable for Comment

Sashwee had a question for Mr. Stossel after yesterday’s post.

Would Mr. Stossel, I wonder, be willing to recommend some starter music for a baby? Stimulating but not too stimulating if you know what I mean?

Sashwee, I tried to reach him but he can be hard to pin down for questioning. (I guess he prefers to be on the left side of the question mark.)

Welcome Preschool Moms!

I’m seeing a lot of visitors today from the link in ClubMom’s Preschoolers newsletter. Welcome! We’re pretty much in perpetual preschool mode around here, no matter what else is going on.


Here is our current three-and-a-half-year-old. He’s an adventure! You can read more about him here.

He is surrounded by sisters: three above, one below. (The day he was born, when I called my mom from the hospital to tell her to give my girls the news that they had a brother, I heard an audible gasp in the background, and then Rose, then six years old, shouted, "He can be the KING!" She’d been in need of a boy to round out the make-believe casting pool. Thus was his position firmly established from the beginning. Although these days, his antics are so hilarious he’s more like the court jester. Young Rilla, our 18-month-old, has usurped the throne for now.)

Here are some posts about Early Childhood Education. And I’ve written lots of picture book reviews at my author site, Here in the Bonny Glen. Enjoy!

UPDATED TO ADD this link: Preschoolers and Proper Pencil Grip. It wasn’t properly labeled before, sorry!
