  • A collection of Nursery Rhymes published in the 60's: Childcraft Poems of Early Childhood. We had a copy when I was a kid. It was old and battered then, but the illustrations are beautiful, and I loved that many of the selections used an expansive vocabulary that really helped me as a child. I found a copy of the exact same edition in a used book store (our family copy had been destroyed). I read it for my own nostalgic amusement; and when I was expecting, my DH read from it to my pregnant belly.

    Our kids grew up hearing and reading these rhymes. Mother Goose, Edward Lear, Eugene Field, Rober Louis Stevenson, Rachel Field, Christina Rossetti, Water De La Mare... And illustrators like Eloise Wilkin, Milo Winter, even Walt Disney. All 5 verses of Jane Taylor's "Twiinkle Twinkle Little Star", and all 6 of Sarah Josepha Hale's "Mary's Lamb". What a treasure.  :-)

  • My favorite children's book   and Jane. A old book used in my first grade class. I still have the book. It has a pet dog in it. I liked it too because it was a book that had no violence in it.

  • Do not ever bite your child! When your child bites give him a time out for fifteen minutes in a chair were he can see you .Do not let him or her get off that chair until the fifteen minutes are up. Do not talk to him or her until the fifteen minutes is up and do not let any one else talk to the child. If he gets off the chair put him back on . Do not talk to him. Make sure he is facing you so he sees that you have the freedom to move about the room.Usually why they bite is because they are not getting what they want. If the child is cutting teeth then perhaps he may need some thing to stopthe pain. You may want to call your Doctor on a advice for what to give him for pain. Do not go to their level of thinking and bite them back.
