In The Growing Story by Ruth Krauss is a simple beginning grows a story that celebrates little changes that tell us we are growing up. This sweet story was first published in 1947.
This is a very sweet story about growing up and how our bodies change. How our clothes get smaller on our bodies. It starts with a little boy who watches the trees change and his puppy grow bigger. But yet he doesn't think he is getting bigger as well. Until the new season changes. The illustrations of this book are amazing. They are beautiful and really well drawn. I recommend reading this to explain how we grow to children.
Hey everyone, so I decided to make the plunge to sell SeneGence. It's scary and it's out of my comfort zone but I am working hard on making it a success. I know what you are thinking because I have thought about it over and over the years. Another MLM...why....so I want to explain some things so you see why I made the plunge.
But first I need to explain who I am. I am twenty-nine years old and been married for eight amazing years. I have three children and I stay home with them. My only daughter Ginevera is six years old and started first grade this year. She is complete opposite of me in everything and we butt heads a lot. One of the things she is into is make-up. Being a girly girl and since she is my only daughter I kind of like that she is a girly girl. Then we have Miles who is four years old. He is a child who does things before he thinks of them. He has low-functioning autism and often is pretty aggressive when he is upset. Then our littlest son Mason who is two years o…
Nikki McClure grew up in Kirkland, Washington watching ants and pretending to be an artist. She went to Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. Where she studied ants and learn how to draw them and hung out with Artist. In 1996, she made her first paper-cut for the book, Apple. She splits her time between yearly calendar and making children's books.
Applefollows the life of an apple throughout the year, demonstrating the cyclical patterns in nature. This was Nikki McClure's very first book, originally self-published and sold in limited edition of just 200 copies. Now, 16 years later, it is available in wide release.
I love this book and how simple it is for kids to learn the life-cycle of an apple. It's such a great concept of the one word line on each page as you follow along. I love the illustrations on how original they are in black and white then the pop of red throughout the book. My kids love this book from my oldest who is a new reader to my youngest who lov…
So I sell makeup, body care, and skin care and I LOVE IT! No seriously I love selling and learning about makeup. But for me it was never like that growing up. I actually...despised makeup. I was the girl who bought all of her makeup at dollar tree to just use for one single night of the year. Prom or homecoming. Even when I was in college, I never wore makeup. Sure I went to some mary kay parties but I would have someone else put makeup on me and then that was that. I took it off soon after I came home. I was just plain girl. I hated dressing up because I never felt BEAUTIFUL. I didn't have the self-confidence that I was severely lacking. Which in truth made me realize that no man was ever going to want to DATE me or even Marry me. Why would they when their was better looking women then me.
I watched a friend of mine who found senegence. She fell in love with the product and started selling it. She was the COMPLETE OPPOSITE of me. She was on the drill team and was skinny. She wa…
