MacBeth's Summer Opinion

Trip at sunset, Martha's Vineyard

Summer is traditionally "time off" from school.  But of course, learning takes place all the time.   Here are some suggestions for summer learning without  worksheets or burdensome lessons:  

 

New!  Have a Moominsummer with the Moomintrolls!

 

  Storybook Travels will take you on a virtual tour (or a real one if you like) to places like Hannibal MO, London, NYC, California's Channel Islands, and more--over 30 destinations from your favorite stories.

We found Gepetto's workshop in Italy with this book!

Also:  How the Heather Looks: A Joyous Journey to the British Sources of Children's Books Like the title says...beautiful narrative.  Read how the author tracks down the elusive Arthur Ransome and finds out where Swallows and Amazons really takes place.

 

  Read about a famous literary frog!

  Sal finds blueberries, and her mother, in Maine

  The famous pig gets back to nature
