2011 Calendar - Grimms Fairy Tales

January is a Month of Universal Letter Writing Week, Writing Quotes and collecting Grimm's Fairy Tales. You can download the 2011 Calendar here and check in every month for events. Btw, 4th January is marked for Grimm's Fairy Tales and the two Grimm Brothers ( Jakob and Wilhelm Grimm) are remembered for pouring in dreams to the kids world. Grimm fairy tales include stories of Kings, magic, and talking animals. Even though the stories are sometimes scary, fairy tales pave in way for fear to cool down and often teach children moral lessons of human values and guiding light to right or wrong. Some of my favorite stories ever are:

1. Hansel & Gretel
2. Red Riding Hood
3. Snow White
4. Rumpelstiltskin
5. Cinderalla
6. Sleeping Beauty

Many more and I am sure, the list goes long for you too as we all cherish the yester year memories of being a child and reading the wonderful stories. Step into Kidsfreesouls Fairy Land and pop up some moral lessons as you read the stories that teach moral values. Click for Resources pages for more wonderful sites for children and find stories are National Geographic website too.

1.1.11 - Happy New Year

1.1.11 - The first day of the year 2011 begins with four ones and November will have a unique 11.11.11 - Now, what I think is, why can't we have something unique that can adorn our lifestyle in this new year 2011. I asked for some ideas and my children promptly charted out their Resolutions for 2011. The list went long but they settled to follow the Resolutions that require most to change their Personality or call it - Identity. They chose 'smart working' lifestyle. They resolved to be patient, focused and aim for perfection. Above all, kids have chosen 2011 as the year for Reading and being focused.
