My Favorite Things - Day 6

Day 6 

If you missed any of the previous days, there is a link at the end of this post

Today's post comes to us from The Language Bear.  Not familiar with Bosley?  Oh you need to be!  Bosley is a bear that teaches through books and also speaks many different languages!  That's one smart bear!

Meet the author of these wonderful teaching books - Tim Johnson

In his own words....

My name is Tim Johnson and I began this project out of my passion for dual language books and to help expose young children all around the world to new languages.  It is my dream to raise my twin boys speaking or at least understanding many languages and help others do the same.
The first Bosley book, Bosley Sees the World was published in 2011 and received a great response from teachers, homeschoolers and parents from around the world.  The series will continue as long as people continue to enjoy their adventures with Bosley.
I am writing these books with the deliberate intention of teaching young children new words and phrases using the following methods:
Repeat words
Simple phrases,
Highlighted vocab words,
Contextual learning
Corresponding imagery
I hope you enjoy reading and learning with Bosley as much as I do. I look forward to offering many more adventures with Bosley in the future.

I was sold after reviewing Tim's books. I think dual language books are great for the children to learn from and see how other languages are even written.  The illustrations are wonderful and will keep even non-readers interested in what is going on!   You can find Tim's books on Amazon and if you have the Amazon Prime Membership you can get FREE Shipping in time for the holidays!  Why not buy a book for your child and an extra to give to those in need! 

As a bonus - the Kids can sign up for the Bosley Fan Club and get a special FREE e-book for signing up. Just go HERE and sign up today!

Why not connect with Tim on Facebook HERE and on Twitter HERE!  Also their website is full of fun at The Language Bear! Be watching for a special giveaway from Tim at the end of My Favorite Things!

Shining the Spotlight - Finding Home Farms

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you another company that I feel you should know about.  

I first learned about Finding Home Farms on Instagram. Little did I know, Laura, one of the owners of Finding Home Farms, lives local to me, in the Hudson Valley of New York. 
You can read all about Laura and her lovely family at her blog about page. 
 I immediately knew that I had to try their products in my home. I have grown to love their products (shop), Laura's sense of style and her blog. 
Can we just stop now and talk about their packaging first.  It speaks to you before even trying the products. Simple, organic and calming.  Isn't it just darling with the little dove.
sigh....insert smile

I love her blog tagline - Gather Create Connect - that says it all, there in three little words. YOU already know before going forward that you are in for a special treat. 
I am only going to speak to a few of their many products because these are what we use in our home with our family.

Happy New Year and welcome back to our first
Shining the Spotlight
for 2017! 

 I hope you all enjoyed your holidays and are settled back into your routines.

Today I am so excited to introduce you to a company that has such a wonderful purpose behind it!  Jessica Griffis is a 17 year old college student paying her way through college selling Hilltop Design simple, natural and homemade products.  Jessica was also home educated!!! (dear to my heart)

Ya'll know I am all about the package as first impressions are so important. Don't you just love this sticker/stamp that she had on her package!  Spoke to me before I even opened it up and smelled the freshness of the products. 

I was impressed with the smell of the products, not overwhelming and artificial smelling at all. I felt safe using them on myself and my children. 

There are lip balms, lotions, scrubs, body butter, bath bombs and more.  The scrubs rival any other name brand and the bath bombs are THE BOMB!   The products are very …

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you a company that  not only meets but exceeds my expectation.  In service and product. 
Rustic Honey

The owner's name is Lauren Moran and I can see why her shop is so successful!  Rustic Honey is a lifestyle boutique. They offer women's clothing and accessories, children's wear, home goods, vintage finds, handmade gifts and more!  Let's look at this business card first. First impressions are everything in my book.  (I did not get a picture of the adorable chalkboard wrapping that the box was wrapped in but it was so cute!)

It's cute, to the point and shows her style.

Not even talking about the farmhouse towel that I ordered yet...but come on a hand written note to me personally and has all her social media outlets on there also. Clever!  On the opposite side of this personalized note is the cutest quote and picture. 

Ok I am getting to the towel I's HUGE and adorable. The printing is clear and impressive!�…
