Spotted: Go! on Oh Joy! and Cup of Jo

We spotted our newest adventure journal on two blogs this week. Oh Joy! put together a list of "Travel Must-Haves with Kids" which includes lots of useful tips, just in time for spring break. A Cup of Jo shares why Go! is "A Genius Kids' Book for Trips." Her son Toby said "I would like to fill it out in a plane or car or rental house. I would fill it out in all of them!” You can pre-order your own copy today on Amazon or buy it locally after March 27th.

What Wee Read

You’ve probably (hopefully?) seen this pick already. But if your kid doesn’t have it yet, please consider it mandatory reading. One of our all-time favorite books, Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls isn’t just for girls. (It’s in the regular bedtime rotation for our 7 year old boys.) Every kid (and adult) needs to know about the women beautifully profiled in this book, and in its equally engaging sequel. And for International Women's Day, it’s 30 percent off. Our advice? Stock up for gifts.

Wee Hee Hee Valentines are Here

For our kids, the best valentines are the ones that get them giggling. So we’ve picked a few of our favorite Wee Hee Hees, and created cards that are free to download. (We recommend printing them on a nice card stock.)

Easy peasy! Download them right here.

What Wee Read

I am Martin Luther King, Jr. by Brad Meltzer

Every kid should know about and be inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.. This picture book biography from the fantastic “Ordinary People Change the World” series is one of our favorites. Since reading it, our almost-7-year olds have been talking about “nonviolent resistance” — changing the world with peace and love. (And to keep it going, check out the Rosa Parks and Gandhi books from the same series.) There’s no better way to encourage kids to dream big.

Introducing: A Box of Awesome Things Matching Game

You know what’s awesome? Fireflies. Lava. Tacos. Yellow. 

Wee Society’s compilation of awesome things is now available as a matching game. It features some of the world’s most universally awesome (but perhaps overlooked) things: masking tape, tunnels, elbows, nests and more. The game was designed to boost kids’ vocabulary, exercise working memory and spark silly conversations about what kids think is awesome. 

The game comes with 20 pairs of cards – including one blank pair so kids can create their own addition. What’s not included: things that are NOT awesome, like cavities, garbage or splinters. It’s designed for all ages. Beginners can take out a few pairs, and work their way up to using all 40 cards.

 

 

A Box of Awesome Things is available from book sellers nationwide, and on Amazon. Fans of awesome things: Also check out our Incomplete Book of Awesome Things (watch the book trailer) and Incomplete List of Awesome Things art print, available at art.com.
