I carefully creep out of the boys’ room, checking to make sure they are both asleep: eyes shut, bodies sprawled out, even breathing. I sigh. Peace has fallen upon this home. I grab the Oreo brownie (a brownie-chocolate chip cookie-Oreo hybrid) I had been hoarding since Friday and a pint of the new dairy-free Haagen dazs mocha chocolate cookie “frozen dessert” (it’s Monday, I make no apologies), and settle on the couch with a book when I hear it: the muted footsteps, soft clink of hot wheels cars colliding, and loud whispers of two little boys who haven’t quite mastered the subtle art of whispering. I pause, ears perked up, wondering if I need to say anything and desperately wanting to pretend I can’t hear that my two boys are (very) wide awake. I creep into the room quietly, half hoping to scare them as much as they’ve scared me with their creaking and whispering (we live in an old house and the hubby is out this evening), but I stop short when I see what they’re doing. The two of them are laid on their bellies, angled so the light from the hallway can catch the book open between them. My body blocks the light, a sign that Mom Is Here. The boys are startled and sheepish, the older one claiming the younger boy put him up to it. (Doubtful ...) I take the book away and tell them they need to get their rest because tomorrow is a busy day. I leave them pretending to be asleep, and I try to hide my smile. Of course I’d rather my boys be asleep ... but deep down inside, I can’t help but feel proud. #raisingreaders #momlife #boymom #mamakeikireadsonthego #mamakeikireads #lovingthemomlife

If you have already read ‘The Witches’ by #roalddahl this could be your next port of call. I read this to a #year4 class as our #classbook and they loved it! It’s gripping but with lots of humour too and definitely holds the readers attention. 👍 💥WARNING💥 It is quite scary! #granny #scarystories #anthonyhorowitz #kidslit #goodreads #childrensbooks

YA, SAYA SUDAH MEN-DOKTRIN ANAK-ANAK SAYA SEJAK MEREKA DALAM KANDUNGAN ! Miris membaca cara orang tua dalam mendoktrin anak-anak mereka tentang jihad yang SALAH sehingga anak-anak mereka ikut dalam aksi terorisme yang biadab! Sedari kecil, anak-anak tak berdosa itu diberikan tontonan tentang kekerasan dan diberikan pemahaman yang menyimpang, JAUH dari sifat-sifat seorang muslim sejati yang dicontohkan oleh Rasulullah SAW SAYA TAK MAU KALAH! KITA JANGAN KALAH! Karena tak mustahil doktrin menyimpang itu akan anak-anak kita terima juga suatu hari karena pengaruh lingkungan Maka dari itu, Saya berupaya SEDINI MUNGKIN.. Menumbuhkan DOKTRIN YANG BERBEDA dari para orang tua pelaku teror Bagaimana caranya? Kenalkan anak-anak dengan sosok idola yang sejati, Rasulullah SAW Kenalkan bagaimana akhlak beliau memperlakukan manusia, bahkan dengan orang yang tidak seiman dengan beliau Bacakan anak-anak kisah-kisah tentang Rasulullah SAW, bagaimana perjalanan hidupnya, apa saja hal yang patut kita dan anak-anak tiru, dan apa hikmah yang bisa kita dapatkan Bacakan buku-buku kisah islami yang sarat akan kecintaan Allah SWT pada makhlukNya, sarat akan perjuangan manusia karena kecintaanNya pada Allah SWT, dan kaya akan nilai moral yang menegaskan bahwa ISLAM adalah agama penuh rahmat dan cinta damai, jauuuuh sekali dengan kata kekerasan yang dipahami oleh para teroris biadab KITA JANGAN MAU KALAH MENDOKTRIN ANAK-ANAK KITA TENTANG BAGAIMANA AJARAN ISLAM YANG SEBENARNYA! Kalau kita tak mau berjuang menumbuhkan doktrin cinta tersebut kepada anak-anak kita sedini mungkin Maka akan sangat mungkin anak kita bisa terpengaruh doktrin lain yang menyesatkan di luar sana #bacakanbuku #ayobacakanbuku #bacabukuislami #bukuislamianak #islamagamaku #islampenuhcinta #cintarasulullahsaw #rasulullahsaw #sirahnabawiyah #akhlaknabimuhammad #raisingreaders #ihateterorism #homeeducation #ibumadrasahpertama

The Seven Silly Eaters by Mary Ann Hoberman Illustrated by Marla Frazee. This is a classic read aloud book written in rhyming verses , and tells the story of the Peters family and the tired and under pressure Mrs Peters who has seven silly eaters to feed ! Each one of her children has only one thing he or she will eat, so poor Mrs. Peters works herself into a tizzy keeping up with their demands. Of course, the problem is solved in the end, and I must say that it is a solution that most children would enjoy. The illustrations are beautiful and lead the story on, children get a peek into exactly how difficult it is to cater to a huge brood with picky eating habits and well hopefully respect and love their mums just a wee bit more! Perfect for ages 3+ #summer #summerreading #summerreads #summerreadinglist #booksofinstagram #books #childrensbooks #momlife #momlifeisthebestlife #parenthood #readaloud #readingtime #children #siblings #pickyeater #family #readtoyourkids #familyofeight #bigfamily #raisingreaders #childrenoftheworld #lovemom #readbooks #mom #booklover #sunshine #booksmart #thebiblionaire

This book is laugh-out-loud funny and a fantastic read aloud. In fact, we scream! In one part, there's terrific repetition, perfectly set up so I read one page and my son hysterically screams the next - in character, of course. It's so much fun. A young crocodile loves eating watermelon, but he freaks out when he swallows a seed. What's going to happen to him? I love the book's design, it's so bold and clean.The illustrations are fun too in a striking palette of just black, white, watermelon and green. The little crocodile's expressions are gold. And there's watermelon endpapers. 🍉💖 The Watermelon Seed is written and illustrated by #GregPizzoli @gregpizzoli, published by #hyperionbooks @disneybooks. I can totally see why it won a Dr Seuss Geisel Award. #kids #sweet #fun #watermelon #bookstagram #bibliophile #momlife #mumlife

We love picture books but who knew there were so many things that could go wrong as they are being made? ✍🏻 This is the story of a picture book doomed from the very start. Allan has a good idea for a book about a crocodile, but every time he sits down to write, he’s interrupted. The manuscript gets soaked in ☕️ , nibbled by snails 🐌 , and when Bruce the illustrator gets started on the pictures 🎨 , he gets overexcited and draws a hippo , not a crocodile, at which point the publishers get overexcited too—they want a dinosaur 🦖 and experiment with all kinds of different fonts. Allan and Bruce finally think they’ve straightened things out, when the book goes off to the printer and more mayhem happens. ✍🏻 My Worst Book Ever is a clever and fun introduction to the process of writing books for children. We loved seeing how wrong Allan and Bruce’s book turned out. ✍🏻 #myworstbookever #alanahlberg #bruceingman #picturebook #picturebooks #crocodile #fonts #writing #illustrator #mistakeshappen #childrensbooks #storytime #readtogether #readeveryday #booksbuildbrains #kidsbooks #booksforkids #kidlitillustration #booksforchildren #kidsbookstagram #kidsreading #bookcollection #instaread #raisingreaders #alwaysreading #readtoyourkids #littlereaders #kids #booklove #raiseareader

Today was the first time for me to do a workshop on how to choose and read English books geared toward English teachers here in Japan. We also had some people who read to children and also some people who just like to read to their own kids. It was such a great time!! Everyone was so into it and they were all like sponges just wanting to know more and more! Lastly everyone took turns and we all read from the book I translated “What’s for Snack today?”. I can’t wait to do another event like this! Thank you Chikako for organizing it!!! #englishteacher #english #英語 #英語教育 #英語講師 #englisheducation #英語の勉強 #講師の勉強 #キッズ英語 #englishschool #teachingenglish #speakingenglish #englishlanguageteaching #kidsenglish #readaloud #raisingreaders

WALK THE TALK.. Good morning bookworms

"Eh saya pernah lihat buku Halo Balita di toko buku, itu sama nggak sama yang paket mbak jual?". . ☝itu juga termasuk pertanyaan yang paling sering ditanyakan pada saya. Yup Seri Halo Balita memang ada yang dijual retail di toko buku, tapi beda isi & konsepnya. Berikut perbedaan & persamaannya 😊. . 1. Halo Balita paket dibuat dengan konsep life long learning program utk mengembangkan sisi emosional, spiritual, kemandirian. Semua disajikan secara berkesinambungan. Ada 25 buku + 1 panduan orangtua + 3 boneka tangan untuk kelengkapan mendongeng + Big Book Hello Kids (bundling halo balita dalam bahasa inggris) + dusnya bisa dipakai untuk panggung boneka. 2. Untuk anak yang kecanduan gadget halo balita punya fasilitas aplikasi Augmented Reality 3 Dimensi. Dapat membantu perlahan anak lepas dari gadget. Karena bermain AR harus menggunakan buku juga. Diharapkan anak jadi familiar dengan buku & suka buku. 3. Halo Balita retail dan halo balita paket sama2 kuat/awet karena terbuat dari boardbook yang difurnish. Tapi halo Balita paket ini bisa bercerita, bernyanyi menggunakan pen elektrik atau E-Pen. 4. Di setiap akhir halaman buku Halo Balita paket ada lembar permainan buka tutup alias flip flop untuk menstimulasi motorik halus anak, belajar menjimpit & bolakbalik kertas. 5. Setiap pembelian paket halo balita berhak mendaftar menjadi book advisor. Bisa jualan buku & dapat komisi. Tuh, bisa jadi usaha sampingan di rumah. Lumayan komisinya bisa buat beli buku 😀 6. Halo balita paket bisa dibeli dengan sistem arisan hihi.. kalau halo balita retail kan harus cash 😁 Nah Banyak kan keunggulan halo balita paket? Yang pasti lebih untung beli yang paket 😉. Info/order @beenashop 08126920863 Ada hot seat dan free gift lho 😊 #HaloBalita #bukuhalobalita #halobalitadiskon #halobalitamurah #bukuanakbalita #bukubalita #bukubayi #bukuawet #raisingreaders #yukbacakanbuku #bukuanakislami #bukubagusanakindonesia #jualhalobalitadiskon #beenashop #homescholling #homelibrary

📚SUARA APA ITU 📚 📒Format: boardbook, 10 halaman 📝Penulis & Ilustrator: Devi Raissa & Guntur 📰Penerbit: Rabbit Hole 💐Review Arunara: Boardbook ini sangat bagus untuk mengenalkan jenis dan bentuk alat transportasi ke anak batita. Nara berusia sekitar 1,5 tahun ketika buku ini pertama diberikan dan dia suka sekali! Buku ini kokoh dan mudah dibalik anak seusia Nara. Cutting bukunya juga tidak melulu kotak sehingga memberikan pengalaman tersendiri. Sebagai orangtua, kita dapat mempraktekkan read-aloud dengan menirukan suara kendaraan. Kekurangannya mungkin karena settingnya di Jakarta, jadi anak daerah seperti Nara merasa tempat2 di buku ini cukup complicated. Untuk anak yang lebih besar, mungkin bisa sekalian mengenalkan pada daerah baru. Jadi kesimpulannya, wajib beli! #reviewbukuanak #reviewbuku #raisingreaders #gernasbaku #gernasbaku2018 #1000bukudalam5tahun #1000bukudalam3tahun #readaloudbook #gebyarliterasi #RuangBerkaryaIbu #IbuProfesional #MandiriBerkaryaPercayaDiriTercipta #KenaliPotensimuCiptakanRuangBerkaryamu #Proyek2RBI #Day11
