Ok, I'm Busy, Maybe a Quarterly Newsletter?

Here is a gorgeous site with a treasure trove of art, historical maps, nature and more. I have yet to plumb its depths but what I did peruse was absolutely amazing, especially the maps.
Old Book Art

Found at our friends at Freely Educate.
If you are in the same boat as so many of us, this is the site to go for 100% free and fabulous materials for K-college.
Seriously, you need to spend time here, there is something for everyone of the highest quality.
The Visible Body, a 3D interactive program is extraordinary! I could go on forever. Go Here!!

Clarification on the new CPSIA Act

I forget who emailed me and asked had I heard about this new law but today there is a clarification that should allay many fears that were going on.  The fear included that used children's books would not be legal to see, that would surely be a nightmare for me.  Anyway, here is an update....

"Sellers of used children’s products, such as thrift stores and consignment stores, are not required to certify that those products meet the new lead limits, phthalates standard or new toy standards."
