Wendy’s Frosty Key Tags are back! Buy a tag for $1, and you will get a free Jr. Frosty every time you present your tag with a purchase. This deal lasts through August, but you have to buy your tag before mid-April.
Guess what makes the deal sweeter! This program benefits children in foster care.
Sounds like this could be a good family adventure this spring and summer. Take a deck of cards or a small board game to Wendy's during a down-time for the restaurant. Buy a soda and enjoy it while you play. Then get a frosty as you are ready to leave!

This little 3rd grader didn't like reading very much until he discovered the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" series. I admit, it's definitely not my reading style, but it's exactly what he needed to kickstart his love for reading. He started reading Wimpy Kid books about a year ago. Since then, he has started devouring books. He read through the Magic Treehouse series, the Geronimo Stilton series, and now he is enjoying Theo Stilton books. Figure out what your kiddos enjoy, and work with your librarian to find some books that fit their reading level and their personal style.
I'd love to hear what your kids love to read too!

It's easy to get stuck in a rut, thinking that toys needed to stay separated by genre - keeping polly pockets in one box, Hello Kitty in another box, and Littlest Pet Shop in a third box. But think of the fun your kids could create if they mixed the sets together sometimes. Today we mixed all 3 sets together for an hour of imaginary of play. The Hello Kitty cruise ship took Littlest Pet Shop creatures on adventures to different islands made up of a Fairy Treehouse, and the Polly Pockets jeep transported people around the islands. My oldest son even made a Hello Kitty lego spaceship for her to travel into space. What playsets can you mix together for imaginary playtime today?

This is a collection of forty classic 3, 5, or 10 minute Bible stories that are well written with vibrant and fresh illustrations. The stories are told in simple language that kids will be able to understand. Instead of the Ten Commandments, the story here is titled "Rules to Live By". Instead of the Good Samaritan the story is titled "A Stranger who Helped". The Prodigal Son is "The Boy Who Came Home". And the Last Supper is retitled "A Special Meal".
It's a bright and engaging Children's Bible that will be a great resource for families or Sunday school classes to help children grow in their Bible knowledge.
There is a lot of text on most pages, so I would recommend this book for K-2 readers to read with their parents.
I received this book as a gift from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
