Theodor Seuss Geisel was born on March 2, 1904 in Massachusetts. He wrote over 46 books, including some of the more notable ones such as Green Eggs and Ham. Many of his books became t.v. specials, feature films and even a play on Broadway.
Read Across America also occurs in honor of his birthday.

Free Range Learning: How Home Schooling Changes Everything by Laura Weldon offers the catalyst for an alternative education revolution whether you’re just beginning to investigate homeschooling, or you are a more experienced veteran.
Laura shares data that helps any parent or educator wanting to understand how vital natural learning is to each and every child. She also offers valuable insight and tips on everything starting with where to begin to how to create enriching networks in your own community.
Finally, there are accounts of homeschool families from around the world that provide a real life insight that gave me the feeling of having attended a homeschool support gathering.
Once I started reading it, I couldn’t put it down. I enjoyed the data, family stories and practical advise that it offers to families with children from pre-school on up. It is really a one stop read that will help to empower generations to come.
