This is the new ...

Favourite clothing brands for tween and teen boys

Shopping for boys is more difficult than shopping for girls.  And shopping for tween and teen boys is even more difficult than shopping for younger boys, so the challenge becomes amplified. Not only are there fewer brand options for tween sizes, but, at that age, kids start to have their own say, ...

BIG #babyccinoreads: Large format reference books are great. We love that super-size allows for attention to detail, attractive illustrations and much concentration. With reference books, our need for specifics is all that more important. We like that reference books provide information on the exact hue of the orange of an Emperor penguin’s beak or which exact countries the River Nile runs through, so it’s easy for children to soak up. Today we share some of our favourite #bigbooks ... what are yours? @themontessoristudio
