Snow What Fun
By Cheryl Hawkinson, illustrated by Mike Esberg
Rating 5 out of 5 stars

This book was awesome because: I love winter! My favorite part was the page when all the snowmen were hopping and dancing through the forest!

Have you Heard? - Rock the Caspar!

Caspar Babypants is our new favorite children’s music rock star! Grown ups, remember the band Presidents of the United States? Lead singer Chris Ballew’s children’s music alter ego is Caspar Babypants! The catchy songs and melodies with a folksy influence is music to the ears of preschoolers and grown ups alike.
