Beyond FUN: Imagination Soup

This month my post on Teaching Diversity in a White-Washed World has been featured on Denver blogger and educational specialist Melissa Taylor’s terrific Imagination Soup site. Named the best books and reading blog in the Scholastic Parent & Child 2010 Parent Bloggers Award competition, Imagination Soup serves up resources, insights, and how-tos on reading, writing, science, math and just plain fun activities for parents and other caregivers to share with kids of all ages.

A mom and former (award-winning!) classroom teacher, Melissa teaches creative writing classes in her home and is book editor-at-large at COLORADO PARENT magazine. In addition to writing articles for CP, she also reviews (and gives away!) children’s books at COLORADO PARENT’s colorful and informative Bookmarkable blog.

Yes, there are a lot of exciting aspects to Melissa’s work, but first and foremost she’s a mom of two beautiful girls who benefit regularly from the many educational projects Melissa introduces to them. Luckily, Melissa also shares her insights on Imagination Soup...and invites other moms to do the same.
