I know when it comes to children and the holidays many think of those new toys that will be great for a couple of weeks maybe then tossed aside as your children go to play with their other long forgotten toys. If your children are anything like mine, those holiday toys will soon be something they forget or lose. This year why not try to give them a holiday gift with an educational twist?

Children learn things at a faster pace the younger they are, I have found the older one gets the harder it is for them to pick up a new skill such as a foreign language. I took French in high school because of my family heritage, I am a bit of everything but my French ancestors amazed me the most. I loved taking French courses and when children are young they will think it’s even more cool to learn their words in a new language.
So remember Rosetta Stone when looking for a great holiday gift idea that will keep giving and giving for years to come!
Make it a Happy Day!
