What Is The Montessori Method? How Can It Help My Kid?

By: Reily McGee

 

“So many parents have been saying I should try the Montessori Method for raising my kids but I have no clue what that is!” Boulder is no stranger to the Montessori Method.

How The Penguin Random House Antitrust Case Could Impact Your Book Reading Habits

Saturday, 20 November 2021

By: Reily McGee

 

A few weeks ago, the Department of Justice filed a lawsuit against the book publisher Penguin Random House for their attempts to buy out Simon & Schuster for $2.2 Billion dollars. If the acquisition went through, it would consolidate the big five book publishers down to four, extending Penguin Random House’s lead over the competition as the world’s largest book publisher. 

 

The arguments being present by the Department of Justice currently are unusual for an antitrust case.

Dog Man: From the Creator of Captain Underpants (Dog Man #1)Phoebe and Her Unicorn (Volume 1)

 

By Pam Martin

 

We parents can be torn when our kids choose to read graphic novels. They have less text, so we might worry there’s less on each page to advance our child’s overall literacy. They’re also consumed more quickly, which can make them more expensive (unless they’re available at the library, which can be tricky with series titles). Additionally, there’s less room for the reader to imagine the world of the characters.

Shifting Stones: A Fun Game Or An Underdone Experience?

Saturday, 30 October 2021

 

By: Reily McGee

 

We recently got Shifting Stones into Grandrabbits and I was curious. I had never heard of this game so I wanted to give it a try. What I found was Shifting Stones is a pattern making game reminiscent of games like Rush Hour and Azul. But with a twist, you can only move tiles by discarding pattern cards.
