The Mountain Guide

We’ve got a new guide here at The Peaceful Press and we are excited to share it with you. In the midst of the cold days of winter, we are studying the beautiful mountain ranges of the world, and combining this study with engaging books, fun activities for developing motor skills, and yummy bread recipes from around the world.

We found some amazing books that celebrate mountain cultures and geography from around the world to include in this study. Some of them include information about other faiths and festivals, which opens up a sweet opportunity to share our own beliefs with our children. You can click to see more information about the books and shop them on Amazon, or look for them at your local library.

Even my 10 year old son was engaged with the books in this study, and we think your budding readers will love the word blending activities and extra phonics practice.

The winter months can seem to drag on, but adding in interest led studies can help your children renew their love for learning, and keep developing the skills they need to excel in school and life while making meaningful connections with the most important people in their world.
