#LoveLearning: Play Ball!


School has begun! What a whirlwind week y'all! Happy to report that both kiddos seem happy and well adjusted. Let's all hi-5! Speaking of hi-5's, Dad chose this week's book reco as his favorite by far. And you'll see why. This week's Brightly Book is: Magic Tree House: A Big Day for Baseball. This Land's End weekly book recommendation also seems custom tailored to our little family. Here are the cliff notes:

Jack and Annie aren’t great baseball players . . . yet! Then Morgan the librarian gives them magical baseball caps that will make them experts. They just need to wear the caps to a special ballgame in Brooklyn, New York. The magic tree house whisks them back to 1947!


Parent Tip: I recommend using the Brightly website to track summer reading initiatives for your kiddos.. The site helps make it a little easier, and a lot more fun, for parents to encourage daily reading. We love the site because there are book recommendations from all publishers for every age and stage, reading tips, author essays, seasonal suggestions, and more. 

Don't forget that each Thursday through August 31, 2017 Lands’ End will feature a Brightly Book of the Week along with thoughtful discussion questions for parents and kids to encourage reading comprehension. And have fun with it - you and your kids can show your love of reading with a photo or video using #LoveLearning and #LandsEndKids for a weekly chance to win a book from Brightly by posting on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

But there's more! Here is this week's Lands' End graphic tee available until the end of today which just so happens to coincide with this week's science experiment...

This summer, Lands’ End is excited to partner with America’s Favorite Science Teacher and frequent Ellen Show guest Steve Spangler through the #LoveLearning campaign to feature weekly DIY science experiments that families can do at home.

You'll definitely want to check out this week's experiment - this is one for the father's as it requires tools and adult supervision indeed: Mousetraps in Motion! Check the video out here. Each Thursday through August 31, 2017, Lands’ End will feature a new do-it-yourself science experiment so be sure to check back next week, too!

Parents and kids have a chance to showcase a passion for science with a photo or video using #LoveLearning and #LandsEndKids for a weekly chance to win a Big Bag of Science Kit by posting on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
