Free Homeschooling Ebook and Creepy Nursery Rhymes

Have you picked up my ebook, Homeschool Tips From a Homeschool Veteran? It is available FREE for Smockity Frocks Facebook fans for a very limited time. This free offer has expired, but you can still purchase the eBook here.

I'll soon be ending this free offer and selling the book on Kindle via Amazon, or in pdf format through e-junkie. Be sure to get this FREE while you can!

And in slightly demented news, you should know that my kids enjoy some of the real, original versions of the fairy tales. They aren't called "Grimm" for nothing! Have you read the originals? You can usually count on someone coming to a bloody end.

This gruesome poem by Roald Dahl is one of our favorites and is an oft requested read aloud.

So, in that vein, my 13 year old made a video of 2 ways to interpret a nursery rhyme. I love it when my kids crack me up! (Email viewers may need to click through to the post to view.)

  1. That’s awesome!

  2. For those of us who don’t have FB, can we still get your wonderful book?


  4. My girls thought these where funny! We have talked several times before about how grim older children’s songs really are.

  5. Your kids are awesome!

    And I have to tell you that I downloaded your ebook a while back and read through it then (even though I work full time & have kids in public school). I really enjoyed the book, and filed it away in my mental Rolodex under “maybe…someday…” We recently made the big and terrifying and exciting decision for me to go part time at my job & pull our kids (5th grade, kindergarten, and 4month old) out of school for next year, and this was the very first resource I pulled out as I begin wading through (drowning in?) the planning stages.
