Apologia: A Light for My Path Review

Light to My Path Review | The Curriculum Choice

Ever see a book that looks wonderful but you just want to see inside it before you buy?  Let me take you inside a lovely little book published by Apologia Press: A Light for my Path by Davis Carman. It is such a lovely little picture book and has so much more in it than meets the [...]

Go for the Gold with Olympic Games!

Is your family looking forward to the Olympic Games this summer? My children are already talking about which events they hope to catch on TV. (My secret hope is that the stations show more sports coverage and less chit-chat, but that’s just me.) Even if Olympics fever hasn't yet hit your house, now is a [...]

Let’s be honest. In the ocean of children’s books, there’s a whole lot of flotsam and jetsam. Just because a book is popular doesn’t mean it’s worthwhile.

I've already reviewed Games for Math and Games for Writing here at The Curriculum Choice. All three books are similar in format, but I've found each of them to be of such great value that I just had to [...]

Read for the Heart – A Book about Books
