#Sponsored Book Spotlight: C is for Chickasaw: Wiley Barnes

SYNOPSIS: The award-winning children’s book C is for Chickasaw by Wiley Barnes walks children of all ages through the letters of the alphabet as it teaches elements of Chickasaw history, language, and culture. Each topic is introduced by two lines of rhyming verse, followed by additional information explaining its place or importance in Chickasaw culture.
Colorful illustrations familiarize readers with the style of Southeastern Native American art, and a question and activity section in the back provides a springboard for further discussion.
The C is for Chickasaw children’s book can be paired with its companion learning tools, the C is for Chickasaw app and the recently released C is for Chickasaw coloring book, to provide additional hours of fun while learning about Chickasaw language and culture
AUTHOR INFO: Wiley Barnes, Chickasaw, holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Oklahoma State University. He has spent nearly eighteen years forging a career in publishing, writing, printing, and graphic design, with the last eleven years at the Chickasaw Nation. During that time he has had the pleasure of working on a number of projects that promote Chickasaw culture and celebrate Chickasaw people. Barnes lives in Ada, Oklahoma, with his wife and two children.

MY THOUGHTS: What an absolutely fabulous idea! Wiley Barnes has brought children a way to learn Native American History quickly, efficiently and happily. Obviously, parents/educators know how much elementary age children love books that have a pattern or a rhythm. ‘C is for Chickasaw’ brings them this beloved way reading with a twist. While reinforcing their knowledge of the alphabet and including Native American history, you’re combining two classes in one great book. Adding the coloring book brings art into the mix while they’re re-reading the story! Brilliant!

I completely understand why it is an award winner. The colorful images that are on each page will catch even the youngest readers’ attention. Older, independent readers can benefit from the extra, more detailed text. The easy-to-follow, rhymes will allow for memorization. The knowledge that young readers will gain from ‘C is for Chickasaw’ is priceless. History books just don’t offer these same important and under-taught details. I give it 5 stars and highly recommend adding it to your homeschool library!

2018 Holiday Gift Guide: Stocking Stuffers from Mouthwatchers


What’s the age-old question that all ‘Santas’ face? What to put in those stockings! Different ages, different personalities, different preferences- there’s a lot to consider. But, what do they all have in common? Teeth. Santa and his parental helpers can provide a gift that keeps giving: a healthy mouth!

Our friends at Mouthwatchers make it super easy to fill those stockings.

Here’s all you need to know: NATURALLY ANTIMICROBIAL* BRISTLES For Better Health – Infused with silver to naturally eliminate 99.9% of bacteria that grows on the bristles within 6 hours!

FLOSSING BRISTLES™ – Dual-layered bristle structure provides superior cleaning: the inner bristles, thin as a human hair, gently brush away food and plaque in places other brushes miss while the outer thicker bristles ensure complete cleaning of gum and teeth.

SOFT LONG LASTING POLYESTER BRISTLES – Get up to one extra month worth of use thanks to the polyester better bending properties than nylon, used in most brushes on the market! (The ADA recommends changing your toothbrush every 3 months. The Doctor Plotka’s brush will last about 4!)

Dentist Developed – Dr. Ronald Plotka designed this innovative toothbrush as part of his thriving 40+ year Boston-based dental practice.

I can completely stand behind this product. It has been a huge game changer in our dental health. We’ve had 7 checkups since we began using Mouthwatchers and our son is still cavity-free. Since we first tried them, we’ve gotten spoiled. Other toothbrushes just don’t measure up. Brand does matter in brushes! When you find a product that is cost effective, great quality, and delivers proven results, you stick with it.

With all the food and sweets we all consume during the holidays, it’s a good idea to invest in new toothbrushes. Pick up some Mouthwatchers brushes, quality toothpaste and floss. Make those stockings a healthy treat this year. Once you’ve tried the Mouthwatchers brand, you won’t want any other toothbrush. We love them!
