Thanks very much to blogs.com for asking me for my list of the best blogs about children’s entertainment. Please check them out, especially Elizabeth’s Children’s Books Blog, Kids Music that Rocks, Zooglobble (where I found this adorable clip), and, for Potterites, Muggle.net

    Hello Nell,
    I love your blog! Have you heard of this new children’s animated film that coming out called Delgo? I saw the trailer and it looks so great. I love the characters, they are really beautiful and seems to point toward a lesson for my kids (without “mom” having to say it!) about diversity and acceptance. I was hoping you might know more about it or can give me more information, I’m really looking forward to seeing it.
    Thanks for your posts!
    Sandy

    I had not heard of it, but look forward to seeing it, thanks. Are you connected to the film? If so, let me know if there will be a screening for critics as it is not currently on our schedule.

    Hi There:
    I stumbled onto your site and wondered if you have heard about Luvin` My Numbers (modern version to School House Rock). It is an excellent resource for children and for parents too! It’s the first music CD in the Luvin` My Education Learning Series. You will pleased to know that there are 18 tracks filled with education, inspiration, and motivation built right in and … you can listen FREE before you buy!
    These CDs are also in any public library where parents can check them ot just like books too! The best way to agree is for you to experience a FREE listen yourself. Then you can share your thoughts with the rest of the world:

    My son is almost 9 months old and I feel like I haven’t gotten to watch him grow up. I had him and went back to work after four weeks and he has been with a nanny ever since. I work 6 days a week and my husband does as well. We work at Narconon drug rehab and with the problem int he US today, we can’t afford to take off any. How can I manage my time more so that I don’t feel like I am missing out on my sons childhood?

    I am sorry to hear that, Megan. I hope you will be able to sit down with your budget and expenses and find a way to spend more time with your son.
