Silly Words Kids Flashcards

Kids (and grownups!) love to learn and say crazy-sounding words—not to mention impressing others with them—so we’ve created Silly Word Flashcards, featuring some of the wackiest multisyllabic terms in the dictionary. Like its buddy Big Word Flashcards, the fun definitions, child-friendly phonetic pronunciations, and playful illustrations will introduce youngsters of all ages to the joys of loquacity.

So clichè…..but these flashcards make learning fun! There are 25 cards with terrific definitions & even better illustrations. They are comical, cute, creative. A few game ideas are also included on an insert. I think they are great for back-to-school or as a gift for someone with a desk! I have mine on my desk and they make me smile (smarter, too). 

 


Each card includes parts of speech/ similar words/ use in a sentence/ visual aid

Polar Bears - 1 John 3:18

Love expressed in words only can leave you feeling cold. Love expressed in deeds brings warmth and fulfillment. 

What are Joyful ‘toons? 

Joyful ‘toons are cartoons that are based on verses from the Bible. Each cartoon consists of a verse  and a cartoon illustration. It is my prayer that they be used to exhort and encourage Christians in their walk with the Lord, and also that they be used to reach out to those who don’t know Jesus as Lord and savior. joyfultoons.com/faq/

About the Cartoonist

I began drawing cartoons based on Bible verses in the 1990′s. I have always loved drawing cartoons, and one day the idea came to me for a cartoon that would illustrate the relationship between faith and grace. Not long after, an idea for a second cartoon came to me. I noticed that the back page of the weekly bulletin at my church was often blank, so I approached the pastor with the idea of using my cartoons to fill that space, and he agreed to my proposal. After that, ideas for other cartoons started coming to me, and they became a regular feature of the church bulletin. I then thought of sharing the cartoons, which by this time were called Joyful ‘toons. joyfultoons.com/about/

This Polar Bear Joyful ‘toon was created by Mike especially for my blog. 

THANK YOU, Mike!

Mr Darcy’s Guide to Courtship: The Secrets of Seduction from Jane Austen’s Most Eligible Bachelor

Fitzwilliam Darcy/ Emily Brand

Old House books

July 23, 2013

paperback, 192 pages

Overview

Inspired by the works of Jane Austen, the amusingly tongue-in-cheek Mr Darcy’s Guide to Courtship is written from the perspective of Pride and Prejudice’s Mr. Darcy and closely based on real Regency advice manuals. It is a hilarious and irreverent picture of the social mores of the period and of how men thought about women – and sheds amusing light on men of the modern age, too! Readers can dip into different sections for Darcy’s views on a myriad of issues, including “What Females Want”, “The Deceptions of Beautiful Women” and “Winning Their Affections, Flattery, Making Conversation, and Flirting!” Also included are sections written by Pride and Prejudice’s Miss Caroline Bingley and Mr Darcy’s correspondence with famous Regency figures including the Duke of Wellington.

Table of Contents

Table of Contents
I: Romance in the Regency Era 
II: Making Oneself Agreeable 
III: Selecting a Wife 
IV: Winning her Affections 
V: The Proposal 
Ask Darcy: Questions from Correspondents
The title suggested to me a fun and lighthearted read, something a Jane Austen fan would enjoy. This fan was disappointed. 
Written as a satirical account on Darcy and courtship in eighteenth-century England, I didn’t find this book very amusing. I thought it was too lengthy and too repetitive. 
I also don’t view Pride and Prejudice’s Mr Darcy to be as rude as he was presented in this book. Regency aristocrat, arrogant, and proud, yes, but not as preposterous as portrayed here. Just saying.
Disclosure of Material Connection: This book was provided, by Shire Publications, in exchange for an honest opinion. No other compensation was received.
