Mmmm...Jam...it's good stuff. :) And reading...that's just the thing that our brains need some days! So what could jam and reading books have in common? Well, Canadian author & illustrator Sarah Jackson has tied these two parts of life together in the most fun and whimsical way! She has five JAM books that she's created and they're a lot of fun. We received a classic J is for Jam book to read with our kids - and it is great. What a fun way to learn the letter J and to learn about what sound the letter J makes...and what some words are that begin with J! We're teaching our oldest his alphabet now and J is for Jam was great little tool to add into our repertoire. :) There's even a special page in the book for your child to draw their favorite J word...like I said, this is a unique and fun book that your children will surely love!
Secondly we also reviewed The Shapes that Tessel ate. This is specifically a children's educational book that introduces all sorts of different geometrical shapes and gives your child a taste of the mathematical concept of "tesselation"...I have never been a big fan of math, but I did used to love tesselation when I was in school! ;) I'm hoping that this book can help my kids enjoy learning shapes & a few math concepts as well...I will definitely say that it is a good resource to have on hand. For now we're focused just on the shapes...but I love that this book can "grow with your child" and that you can use it to teach more difficult concepts as they grow older. :)
Sarah Jackson has several other great children's books too...they're simple & fun and are something a little different from many of the usual children's books you see! She creates more than just books though...I saw some real sweet t-shirts, bookmarks and more while browsing around! Head over to her great little website, A Jam Story, and take a look!
