With just a little hand sewing and a few pieces of wire, I was able to make my Elf on the Shelf bendable and poseable. I love that I can bend Aspen’s legs and arms at the knees and elbows. She looks much more realistic, and she is so much easier to pose all over the house. You too can make your own Elf bendable with my quick and easy Elf on the Shelf hack.

If you are searching for a book to inspire a young reader, I highly recommend Dream Big written by Kat Kronenberg and illustrated by Stephani Dehennin. Recommended for little readers between the ages of 4 and 6 in preschool through first grade, the book imparts the important message of following your dreams and believing in the seemingly impossible. The illustrations are soft and beautiful and help bring the story to life. Definitely check out Dream Big if you want to inspire your child to identify and pursue their dreams no matter how big or seemingly impossible!

The New York Hall of Science is a fabulous hands-on science in New York City. My kids and I spent an afternoon exploring the museum. Even better, NYSCI is located conveniently next to the Queens Zoo, so you can make an entire day out of visiting both attractions.

If you are shopping for new laundry products with limited ingredients definitely check out Molly’s Suds. I received Molly’s Suds Laundry Powder, All Sport Laundry Wash, and Wool Dryer Balls to test on my laundry. For all my washing including my cloth diapers and delicates, Molly’s Suds Laundry Powder results in clean looking and smelling laundry. Even the nastiest laundry came out smelling fresh and clean with Molly’s Suds All Sport Laundry Wash. The Molly’s Suds Wool Dryer Balls help my clean laundry dry a bit faster and come out softer. Overall I am quite pleased with the Molly’s Suds brand!

If you are searching for a living book about women in politics, I highly recommend Isabella: Girl in Charge written by Jennifer Fosberry with illustrations by Mike Litwin. The story follows the plucky, purple-haired Isabella attempts to command her mom and dad to leave early for an important event by imagining herself as various female leaders. Recommended for readers between the ages of 4 and 8, the book is a great introduction women who trail blazed their way onto the political map of America. As a homeschooling mom, I plan to use Isabella: Girl in Charge in current and future social studies lessons and definitely recommend the book to other little girls (and boys)!

My daughter recently developed an interest in super heroes, so I was super excited to receive DC Super Heroes Little Library from David Bar Katz, Morris Katz, and Julie Merberg to review. The ten-book set offers a beautiful keepsake collection of bestselling DC Super Hero concept board books that feature beloved DC super heroes including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Green Lantern, The Flash, and many more. The high quality board books cover topics from the alphabet and numbers to super powers and villains. Both my toddler and kindergartener love reading the ten books in the set, which offer varying lengths and complexity of text. If you too are a super hero fan, I highly recommend DC Super Heroes Little Library!

Just as with the other personalized books from I See Me! that my kids own, the My Christmas Sing-Along Book and CD set is a new favorite in my home. My daughter loves seeing her name in the lyrics and pictures. The binding is very sturdy, the pages are glossy and thick, and the book has already withstood the wear and tear that my daughter has subjected it to. My daughter has also already listened to the CD numerous times in the few days that she has had the set. If you are a fan of personalized books like my kids and I are and your kids love holiday music, then definitely give My Christmas Sing-Along Book and CD from I See Me! a chance this holiday season. #sponsored
