bach's goldberg variations

This book is so cool. It was such a fun read aloud for the littles which included the story behind this song that was written by Bach. I found it to be quite interesting and I learned something new. It comes with a cd to listen to.
Have a great learning week!

That crazy bloogspot..look what it has done to my photo through no fault of my own..ugh.

Looks like a fun book! I'm going to have to see if my library has this book.

I love new books ideas. Come by my blog sometime for a few ideas, too!

Hey, Friend!

I'm so happy you stopped by today! I've been such a SLACKER these past few months.. I've not only fallen behind in blogging, but I've not been a very good bloggy buddy at all. =/ SO SORRY!

I hope all is well with you guys.. HOPEFULLY I'll do a better job of keeping up. ☺

Praying you have a WONDERFUL week!
♥ Tonya

We love this book, too- isn't it great when we mama's get to learn something new, too? :)

I was wondering if you would be willing to post a review for me this week- I'm out of town, but I thought I could pop into my site and link my readers to you for a children's book- what do you think? My email is at my site- just let me know!

And I totally understand if you can't- life is busy! :) Thank you for considering!

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:
MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.
