The New York Public Library just announced their list of 100 Great Children’s Books. Their picks are a great mix of picture books (Don Freeman’s Corduroy) and chapter books (Matilda by Roald Dahl). I count 74 books from the recommended titles that I’ve read with my boys. Full disclosure: I was a children’s librarian before I became an editor at FamilyFun, so some may consider that cheating! How many have you and your kids read?Add a Comment
The kids are settled at school (whew!). But, if you’re like me, you’re realizing you still need a few supplies. Check out our picks for lunch bags, backpacks, and more.Add a Comment
The Emmy Awards will air on Sunday night. Will you be watching?
While many adult-favorite—and office-favorite—shows are nominated (there’s always lots of talk about Breaking Bad, Project Runway, Downton Abbey, The Good Wife, and more at our lunch table), there are a few family favorites in the mix.
My boys and I will be rooting for several contenders in the Outstanding Reality Program: MythBusters (all three of my boys want to be MythBusters when they grow up), Antiques Roadshow (yep, they really do like it!), and Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives (what’s not to like about good food?) as well as The Amazing Race (nominated for 5 awards).
