Ahhh, Peet's coffee. yum!

Many say that Peet's is the best coffee in San Francisco, and now you can get some for yourself and support the educational projects at GalaxyGoo at the same time. GalaxyGoo has been approved as an affiliate of Peet's :-)

They have fair trade blends, so you have even more to feel good about while you caffinate.

Leon the Chameleon

Leon is a chameleon, and changes color...but not quite the same as other chameleons. Leon just can't help changing the opposite color. This wonderful book about finding one's place, is also a great way to introduce color theory to kids. This is one of my all time favorites, for reading to my own kids.

Dinos To Go

This is such a fun book for little kids!

I love DK books, and their fantatic photo illustrations. While this book is really a reference, it's also lots of fun to cuddle up with your pre-reader and explore page after page of fascinating pictures. You can read the captions for the images that interest them. A great way to spark curiosity early, and get them excited about "looking it up".
