JellyTelly Currents 2/3/17
Welcome to JellyTelly Currents - our new weekly round-up of the best articles, videos & ideas we’ve found to help your family flourish.
From the JellyTelly Blog
From JellyTelly blogger Amanda White - So, I thought I’d compile my own best-of-the-best Picture or Early Reader Books. Here are my rules for this list:
- Deliberate Christian content
- Super cute illustrations
- Fun or un-put-downable
- Not a Bible or Devotional Book (I love Bible stories, but that’s another whole list!)
They say kids spell love T-I-M-E. What then am I communicating to my children when I tell them I can play with them for “just a few minutes” or roll my eyes and ask “is this level almost over?” when my son is showing me a new video game. I am afraid to know the answer.
