I came across Everyday Strange's post featuring The Sound of Silence, a song by Simon and Garfunkel (one of my mom's favorites so of course it caught my attention).  ES mentions that the song has been popping up again lately and connected the song to a figure skating video featuring Vanessa James and Morgan Cipres, a French… Continue reading Mindless Rambling.

Color Fun with Elmo and Friends

Color Fun with Elmo and Friends is a small board book intended for toddlers to experiment with. What I disliked: This book targets colors, such as a page on the color green.  All of the objects are green, such as a green van and green bottle cap, but the background color is yellow.  I honestly… Continue reading Color Fun with Elmo and Friends
