Barnes and Noble puts out a nice series of biography/history books for children. We first found some in the store several months ago and tried to order some of the missing volumes. They are not all available, but we were able to purchase enough to augment the grandchildren's Easter candy and we spent an enjoyable time trying to figure out which books were the perfect match for each grandchild. Pelé would have been perfect for Manny, but it was not to be had, nor was Eleanor Roosevelt, who would have been a great example for one of the girls.
I am rather partial to the blog Confessions of a Ci-Devant which I list in my right hand margin. But you must admit I am beginning to give him a run for his money.
