I had this *fantastic* brain flash last night for a series, complete with main characters and interactions that I adore. One that really that could become a brand.
Main problem: its a genre I’ve not read much. Like, I’ve read eight books from a kids’ series in this genre, and watched a couple (only a couple) movies, but I totally love the idea, so I’m going to have to hang on to it. (One thing at a time…)
But it is *really* high on my next-big-project list. (Hmmm, are we thinking NaNo 2007?)
Actually, Jay’s not sure we’ll do NaNo this year. Says we’ll have to wait and see if we’re more together by then.
Hi Amy, I am a complusive explainer too, lol.
Memorization. My daughter started when we started our homeschool- she was 6. My son, 3yo, is already doing memory work. All memory work really is repeating something again and again until you have it memorized.
Don’t get me wrong, our 3yo is not doing formal memory work but we say our prayers at meals and bedtime and he says them with us. There’s no wrong age to begin memorization, kids are natural – in 6 months your child will say, “Mom, remember when so-and-so happened?” and you’ll be searching your mind for something that is vivid to the child. Songs, prayers, poems are all very easily memorized.
Blessings to you, thanks for dropping by! Nice blog by the way.
