Melissa Wiley divides her time between reading books to her own children and writing books for other people's kids. At night, when the children (her own and presumably other people's as well) are sleeping, she curls up on the couch to watch TV with her husband, who is wonderfully tolerant her of her desire to watch Firefly reruns over and over and over again. Melissa blogs about her family's rowdy homeschooling adventure at Here in the Bonny Glen.
My kids giggled all the way through this animated tale about walking, talking United States.
Amazon's new $114 Kindle-with-ads sounds like a pretty good deal. In fact, I'm a little jealous.
