I'm in serious love with these terrific activity/recipe/craft books from Blue Yonder Ranch. They're a perfect addition to Circle Time plans, and they are delightful to look at and explore together.
As I was walking out to get the mail last week, I noticed huge toadstools growing under the redwoods by the pond. I thought it would be so homeschooly of me to take my kids out there to see them, but I really don't know a thing about mushrooms so wasn't sure what I'd tell the kids, other than the obligatory "Don't eat them!" speech.
Lo and behold Blue Yonder Ranch's Autumn I Book of Days has a lovely spread about mushrooms and what to do with them; I couldn't believe what perfect timing this was!
