1. What the Common Core Standards Mean
The term Common Core Standards is all over the news and, most likely, your child's school. What are these standards? What do they mean for your son and his education?
2. Using Board Games for Educational Fun
You might ask why you need any of those dusty old games when your phone and iPad have all of the apps you need for teaching and playing with your son, but if you think back to your own childhood, you'll remember that nothing can take the place of a board game with good, solid pieces.
3. Learning and Intelligence Diagnostic Tests

A boy and his dog is a cliche, but there are many reasons why boys and dogs go together like peanut butter and jelly!
9. Review of Send by Patty Blount
Parents can talk until the cows come home but too often the words go in one ear and out the other. Stories, however, stay with teens. A book like Send will stay with your son and, maybe, will come back to him at a propitious time.
10. Unabridged vs.Abridged Books
If there is one subject on which librarians (and many parents) feel strongly, it is abridged classics: some love them and some hate them. What few seem willing to admit is that each side has some good points. Without further ado, then, here are the benefits of each:
