July is right around the corner and the Back-to-School sales will start before we know it. It's true that summer just began, but it's important to keep those school skills fresh for the return to school that is looming over us. For early literacy learners, letter learning is one of those skills. The bloggers who linked up to Mom's Library last week, showed us that letter learning doesn't have to be a bore. There are lots of fun ways to learn letters. From games in the sprinkler, sensory bins, alphabet books, and hands on learning, I'm showcasing the best letter learning posts from Mom's Library last week.

I'm super excited about today's giveaway because it has been one of my boys' favorite summer learning activities. They've been spending their computer time using ABCMouse.com. I had seen the commercials for it, but wasn't sold on the product until my sister mentioned how much her daughter loved ABC Mouse. Now I am the mom at the ball fields telling the other moms about the greatness of ABC Mouse. You can read True Aim's review of ABC Mouse and enter to win a year subscription for up to three kids!!
