Magical Mouse Schoolhouse Book Review: A Hoot or Moot?

 Reading about fossils while in Dinosaur! Queue

I was excited to see this book arrive. Jodi from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse keeps things entertaining while remaining concise and informative. Each segment is short, but filled with an amazing amount of information and best of all, activities! We love activities! I see slime in our future.

 This book is not just for families who homeschool. I can easily see it being utilized for families who want to keep the thought processes alive during vacation without it "feeling" like education. And hey, even if you're a grown up, the book is fun!  The activities provided with each segment are also a great way to stretch the magic to cover the Disney Blues once you're home.

We all know what the Disney Blues lead to -- depression, anxiety, sadness, and finally booking another vacation. Skip over all the crappy feelings by reading this book, doing the activities and then forking over a wad of cash to the mouse and do it all over again, but learn this time. You know, it's not really splurging if it's educational, right?

Even if you're not as Disney-fluent as a DisNerdy person like me, Jodi has thought of that. She's included a Glossary to guide you through some popular terms relating to the Mouse. She doesn't stop there, just check out the last chapter where she goes above and beyond.

Our Magical Mouse Schoolhouse book is already showing signs of love. It went to Animal Kingdom with us recently and survived a Rain-Shower Drenching-August-Day-In-Florida. We took it back in time with us (twice!) and across an African Savannah. The best part was bringing it home and doing a "Today's Takeaway". I definitely recommend this book for anyone who visits a Disney Park; there's something for just about everyone inside the pages.It's a hoot for us, and I know it will be for you, too.
