    The initial Simple Saturday premise was founded in 2009 as a website reference for simple, entertaining and inexpensive crafts and amusements for kids of all ages. Pulling from my extensive background in education, as well as ages of directing arts and science camps for kids, this premise seemed like a natural and comfortable way to jump into the blogging scene.

    Since 2009, Simple Saturday has morphed into becoming a resource for authors, illustrators, and educators of all walks of life in that I create academic book guides for these individuals tailored to their books' specific needs. Whatever the genre, I can come up with a companion guide for them.

    There are two elements that make the guides that I create unique. One is that they are aligned to the Common Core State Standards, or any other criteria deemed necessary. And, in keeping with the Simple Saturday premise, these project-based guides contain hands-on, manipulative activities.

    No passive learning here. Get those scissors out. Grab up the glue. I've got Simple Saturday educational fun in store for YOU!
