BOOK PROMOTION: TIME ROSE SERIES

Christmas is coming, and what’s better in a child’s stocking than a book? Or several books in a special Christmas ‘book bag’, used year after year, which is what we do. If your kids are interested in history, consider my Time Rose series. Now complete, these five books follow the adventures of two Canadian children, […]

BONUS DON’T FORGET THE ‘STORY’

Later in the month, I’ll be providing the usual Christmas & history-based December book recommendations, but here are some that fit in with this month’s Futuristic birthday party theme: 3-7s If You Decide To Go To The Moon by Faith McNulty and Steven Kellogg The Sneetches & Other Stories by Dr. Seuss Thomas On The […]

HISTORY SHARE: KRAMPUSNACHT

  Happy (or for terrified children, not so happy) Krampusnacht! A Germanic pre-Christmas tradition you might not want to share with young children. Or even especially sensitive older ones. https://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2013/12/131217-krampus-christmas-santa-devil/ https://www.theatlantic.com/photo/2013/12/krampus-saint-nicholas-dark-companion/100639/ https://www.facebook.com/Thrillist/videos/10155938764325891/?hc_ref=ARRqNuxKwTVvqGGgh3EFhiv-K6PuLAZadzl2wo7fGOIiNDi5NVyLp1w6KoSk06EYTvk

In addition to some December-based history /historical Christmas fare, some movies ideas to fit in with the futuristic birthday theme. Bush Christmas (1947) (Mid-20th Century) Come To The Stable (1949) Miracle At St. Anna (2008) (WW II) (14+) One Christmas (1994) (Great Depression Era) The Christmas Tree (1966) (Mid-20th Century) White Christmas (Musical, 1954)   […]

HISTORIC BIRTHDAY PARTY THEME: THE FUTURE

The last of the birthday themes actually relates to a time period that hasn’t happened yet, but this blog is about time travelling with kids, and time travel can work both ways! Which means you can let your imagination (and kids’ imaginations) run riot as regards what future times might be like without having to […]
