2011 Reader Favorites

The following is by editor Kara Fleck.

Two years ago, on New Year’s Eve, Megan started a tradition of listing Simple Kids readers’ favorite posts from the past year.  I really like that tradition, so every year I honor it by taking a look back and showcasing readers favorites.

2011 has been a wonderful year, and I thank you all, on behalf of the entire Simple Kids team, for being a part of it!

Without any further ado ….

  3. That taking diction article, has totally transformed story time at my house! Before it we would gather up silly toys and tell a story together, each going back and forth ’til sleepy eyes appeared at naptime. Now I grab my 2.5 year olds notebook we made, then silly toys and write the story down! The smile and pride on his face when I read it at bedtime to him and daddy; its indescribable! thank you thank you thank you!
