We've got a great selection of titles for all ages- toddlers to preschoolers - all about apples!

It is apple picking season in many parts of the country, and that makes it the perfect time to do an apple themed unit with your preschool or toddlers. From books about apples, to apple crafts, to apple songs and fingerplays, and recipes with apples, there are so many great ways to learn about apples with kids.

From fairy tales to favourite jobs to superheroes, kids love dress up. Here are some top tips on building up your costume collection for dress up playtime!

momstown is ready for fall with our monthly theme about apples! We look forward to apple picking every year, so our basket is overflowing with creative ways to learn about differnet apples and have fun with apple crafts and activities!

Back to school this week - and back to routine meant for this mama, time to get the kids a bit more organized for the morning rush! Our school starts early and there's no time for dawdling - and my older son is sometimes up and downstairs before I am. Which is great, except when the TV goes on and the list isn't yet done... can lead to major morning drama.
