Culture and Kids

A while ago I wrote about putting my 2 year old in Mandarin classes. We’ve since switched to Spanish because it just works out better with our schedule. Well when a friend sent me a link to these cool wooden blocks I had to get them. They’re Korean Character Blocks and what’s real cool is that the word is in English and there’s a pronunciation on one side of the block. Yeah, Adora is only into stacking them and knocking them down right now.. but I figure over time it will be a great learning tool.

Now I wanna get this book to the right! This is gonna get addictive.

As a city full of power players, Washington loves a good list. But there’s one you won’t find printed in the paper, on the cover of a magazine or posted on a popular media blog.

The List: 2012 Best Books, Films & Music

It’s one of the most exclusive lists inside the Beltway. Technology industry lobbyist Drew Littman is behind it.

For nearly 15 years, Littman has hand-picked a list of people  who react and respond via email over the top picks in film, books and music.
