Five in a Row in the FALL

Making seasonal memories is one of the most delightful things you can do to begin family traditions with your children, as it has been with us at Five in a Row! As the air gets cooler, days get shorter and leaves start to change, fall seems to pull us to get out into the world around us and enjoy the changes. Sometimes we’re not sure what to do once we get there, or we just need some new ideas. Five in a Row has a number of things you can do during this season aside from your “rowing,” but we really want you to know that while some families enjoy rowing books during the season in which they are set, it is not necessary. It can also be really fun (and possibly more memorable) to take an imaginary trip to a snowstorm right in the middle of summer! So don’t let a season limit you in your explorations.

Five in a Row Holiday… Entire Book Available and pdf Sample for Viewing!

holidaycovericon_copy_y5o7.gifFive in a Row Holiday – Through the Seasons is truly a set of units you will not want to miss, so I mentioned it to you last week.  I truly did not do it justice, nor did I provide you with enough information.  Knowing that it’s hard to get your hands on an out of print book that is only sold via digital format, I want to share quite a few more details.
