Well, artist Ben Denzer has! And you can too, with your grandchild…well, maybe not cheese or ham!
The Week Junior (the best magazine for kids that has ever been published) in their December, 2020 issue had an article about Ben Denzer, an artist and designer who makes books: tiny books, big books, thin books and books with pages made out of cheese, meat, dollar bills, ketchup packets, toilet paper and even ice cream. My students and grandkids were fascinated. And so was I!

I will never, ever be surprised by what children’s passions are. I teach to their passions because when they are interested, they learn. For all parents and grandparents who are home with kids now and want a fun activity to do, find someone the kids are interested in, look up interesting facts about them on the internet and write them a letter. I’ve even had a child write Robert Ballard, the discoverer of the Titanic, and he wrote back.

Mom’s special holiday is closer than you think, and remember, Mom always comes first. That’s the rule. Here’s six fabulous gifts that will make this holiday even better – our editor’s picks. Maybe you can’t “buy” a mother’s love—but you can at least grease the wheels by getting her the right gift. Maybe it’s a pair of shoes she’s been eyeing for ages. Maybe it’s a new gadget to keep up with her busy life. Maybe all that matters is that it comes from her favorite kid (you, obviously). Whatever the case, it’ll be here on our list!
Reading includes anything from listening to a story being read, listening to a book, reading graphic novels, joke books, Weird but True books, the Lego Magazine, National Geographic Magazine, comic books, or Pokémon and baseball cards.
Children love reading if it is based on their interests. Animals, sharks, Peppa Pig, Star Wars, the Titanic, cars, poetry and more.

We highly recommend checking out this book. We think you will find new approaches to understanding and living in this day and age!

Take a look at some of our favorite quotes from children’s books that we still share daily, even in adulthood!
