The Berenstain Bears

I've recently discovered how great The Berenstain Bears children's books are for teaching children about all sorts of life lessons. My children love them, and my older son (who is almost four) really seems to absorb the messages.

Amazon is offering a 4-for-3 special and free shipping on many of The Berenstain Bear books (priced around $3.99 each).

I also found a few from the series at Target for $2.99.

My children will be getting several books from the series for Christmas, including the one about "Too Much Junk Food" and "Too Much TV". We've also been reading "Santa Bear", which has a nice message about the pitfalls of materialism at Christmas.

I love to find children's books with positive messages about healthy, green, and frugal living!

Sweetwater: Our Third Share

We picked up our third share of produce from Sweetwater Organic Community Farm today. They told us that we can expect more variety (and perhaps greater volume) in our pick-ups now that the weather is cooler.

Today, our pick-up included: three different types of lettuce (including butterleaf - my favorite), joi choi pac choi, carrots, siberian kale, radicchio, eggplant, yellow squash, tomatoes, mizuna, broccoli, kohlrabi, parsley, scallions, and daikon.

This has been such a great way to learn about new vegetables!
