We Read “Otis” for the World Record

I had posted about the Jumpstart’s Read for the Record 3rd October 2013 Campaign a few days back.

So we heard a lot of  Putt Puff Puttedy Chuff ….Putt Puff Puttedy Chuff  the entire day. I printed out his certificate and...

Eurotalk Math Age 3-5:Early Math App for kids

This is the first app I am reviewing for the Educational Apps section of this website and the reason I choose this particular app is because it is so hard to come across good Early Math Apps.

The Part 2 increases in difficulty and Ed still has some...

Glenn Doman “How to Teach Your Baby to Read”: Book Review
