Review-Wee Alphas

I teach ESL, and I like to use flash cards in my teaching, so when I saw the Wee Alphas cards, I was really excited to get them in exchange for a review.
So I was expecting flash cards, because what else could they be?
Well, when I got them, I realized that they were in fact, post cards.
I can’t use them in the way I intended, so that leaves me in a bit of a pickle for reviewing them. These could make a nice addition to the home-schooled classroom, as a Flat Stanley kind of project. I could use them for a bit of a writing assignment, but alot of the cards don’t have space for writing, some have a list of words to pick from. I am not sure what age group this is aimed at, because the illustrations on the front are aimed at younger kids, but the words from the list include “loquacious”.
So, for me, this one was a miss, I am afraid.


Book Review-Pop Manga Coloring Book

After acquiring four coloring books, and a set of 72 pencils, I think it is safe to say I am officially on board with the adult coloring trend.

It is just such a nice little mental break to color in a bit when I’m watching television. I can feel my focus improving afterward.

I was so anxious to get my hands on this book. I love manga, but I am really, really picky about quality, Camille’s work in unbelievable. She is a genius of this style, truly. If you don’t like manga or anime, this might not be the book for you, as out of context drawings of a girl with octopus tentacles might not be your thing. If you do like manga, grab this now.

Aside from the drawings being unbelievably beautiful, the paper is very high quality. This is probably my favorite coloring book I’ve gotten.

(I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.)
