Worked on […]

Someone made a video of (part of) my Baby Goose story time, and now I’m famous! Let the internet dollars start rolling in! Well, you can’t really see me through the sea of infants, but I’m there, holding my stuffed baby-placebo monkey and singing. The songs are “Here We Go Up, Up, Up!” (good activity […]

As previously mentioned, I’m trying to think of a way to better shelve Easy Readers. So, in the process, I’ve been pulling various reading levels of material to look at their record to confirm that they could be located by a keyword search for “Level 1” etc. Some, but not all. Nerts!
