Do you think your child is gifted?

Do you think your child is gifted?   Now that sounds like a loaded question, but actually it isn't.  Parents are usually the best judge of whether their child is gifted.
If you know your child is gifted, or have been wondering if  they are, a great place to explore  is Hoagies. (Yes, like the sandwich.)   It is a great web site for all things gifted.  There is a great deal of information on homeschooling, the different levels of giftedness, and many articles about the needs of gifted children.  I highly recommend it.  I learn something each time I stop by.  
Happy learning!

Danny Books by Mary Ruth Books

My son loves his Danny Books. Danny Books are published by Mary Ruth Books. The books are sold in sets of 6. The books come in varying reading levels. The web site says, " Our books are created with the idea of stimulating young children to enjoy reading while they are practicing the strategies necessary for becoming successful readers. " I have seen my son's reading improve as he reads these books. They have become an integral part of him learning to read.
The books have pictures of Danny the dog participating in various activities. The books have a way making me smile as we read them together each day. They are wholesome books that beginning readers can't help but love. We love Danny! Check them out.
