*A young Home School Mom asked the below question on Facebook:
Any reviews on 'Come Sit by Me' and 'Five in a Row'/ 'Before Five in a Row'? By the end of the year I will have ages 5, 3, 18months, and newborn. It seems like something a busy mom could handle but I would love to hear others experiences with some of these.
A few of the answers were:
*I did both the Come Sit By Me books - just loved them - so easy to sit & read a story...then do a quick activity. Activities cover all areas of curriculum for little kids...add in some baking - maybe some counting and you are good to go! I just finished up with the 2nd book last month - looking to sell it.
I did the books 3 times with my 3 girls...highly reccomended!
*We did Come Sit by Me, It's Canadian, Loved it! especially the Section across Canada, (Sugar Bush, Prairie Dust), then we got my dad to tell stories of the Prairie - the drought and the dust storms.
*I *personally* think Five in a Row has better *classic* books, but Come Sit By Me books are easier to get (and are Canadian, too). I am keeping all our Five in a Row books forever (grandchildren). smile
