The Official M&M's History of the Calendar

Today we read a cute, informative book, called The Official M&M's History of the Calendar. I like how the more we learn, the more we come across things we've learned.

We've also been reading a book about constellations by H.A. Rey. The M&M's book mentioned Sirius, and we were able to look it up in this book.

Also, in Latin, one of our vocabulary words is luna, which means moon. In the M&M's book, it mentions the lunar calendar.

It's also just a great book for this year as we study ancient history as it mentioned several of those societies. And, in American history we've talked some about the Maya who were also mentioned.

Oh, and in math we're getting ready to study Roman numerals. Alexandra was excited to see the year 2000 is written MM - almost like M&M. :-)
