Hello TMG friends! It has been a busy spring at our house, and I haven't been able to pop in here quite as much as I would have liked. But summer vacation is only days away, and I plan to be back with you to share book reviews and maybe a few projects too. To get into the spirit of things, I wanted to direct you to a guest post that I have up on The Crafty Crow right now; a review of a favorite book of ours (and of fellow TMG contributor Lucia's too, if I'm not mistaken) as well as an easy but interesting little science project. Pop on over there to check out the review and to get instructions for making a simple compass.
