  1. I have always loved National Geographic(both in the classroom and out!) How you all, as a corporation, have brought the world to us in fun, exciting, and stimulating ways, is an absolute gift in this ever-expanding, changing, and deteriorating environment in our world that we NOW must adjust to…or not be of any assistance to our students at ALL!

  2. I have always enjoyed reading(and looking at your beautiful photography). I read it home and at school. I get ideas for lessons in each issue that I put a post-it reminder of listed resouces within the magazine, and use year after year.

  3. The resources from Responsive Classroom are valuable to a beginning teacher as well as the veteran teacher. I get the free newsletters and read through them for tips and ideas.

  4. Love Love Where is Waldo.
    National Geographic for sure. Always cool and interesting stuff in them.
    I will also check into the responsive classroom. Sounds cool.
    Thanks again for the wonderful resources.

  5. I would like to see the video information from Responsive Classroom. It is so nice that the internet has offered us so many possibilities. Thank you for sharing so many that are available.

  6. My son (now 6) has enjoyed Waldo books since he was 2. He will sit in the car and look at those books for hours. He’s not only looking for Waldo (which he found a long time ago, of course), but enjoys all the other scenes and nuances that the illustrator includes in every spread. We have every copy of every book we can find. He still stares at those books today!

  7. I remember my grandmother giving my oldest son “Where’s Waldo” books as a Birthday gift (he’s 27). Now his little brother still loves them (he’s 11)!

  8. I remember doing books similar to this with my son when he was small. Now there’s lots of computer games that require us to look for hidden objects–but none that build the personal bond between parent and child like snuggling together with the book.
