Entertainment for Kids
« on: April 28, 2018, 09:22:23 AM »
Brain Candy can be unforgettable.
This seven page short story by James Thurber is the best story I ever read our children.  It is equally entertaining to parents and grandparents.
Many Moons  is like life.  You can never imagine where it will go, but when you look back, it's so easy....

I think you pay a few bucks more for ad-free Hulu.

Think I saw a deal for Disney+ only for 3 years and was only $3-4/month if you prepaid.  Not bad if you only want Disney+ and not ESPN/Hulu.

That’s ok. Already get regular ESPN. Just want + for the live UFC events that used to be free on Fox Sports.

So important a story that it merits a reboot.  No appreciation for it that I can detect.  More's the pity.

My kids often play games, they hate to read books :(

Why don't you read to them after putting them to bed?
My grown daughter said to me some years ago, "The most important thing you did for us was to teach us to love to read."

She went on to earn her MBA.
Many Moons is only 7 pages.  It's not that hard.

I'm going to try this one tonight - always looking for something new to read to the kids.

Was there another thread for Many Moons?

I thought I commented on it but must be somewhere else.

It's a very interesting read that actually teaches a good lesson about perspective and perception.
