robbyjo Posted June 10, 2012 Share Posted June 10, 2012 Hi all: Sorry for the delay. I compiled the resource list, as promised. I provided non-referral Amazon links when appropriate. Apologies if this is not appropriate. Since I have a toddler daughter (18 mo. atm), I add most to the Toddler section and not much about the rest. What my wife and I did was to keep her interest up in reading and math using books and toys. Hence the list. Kindly add to the list and I will add them. The list might be a bit disorganised, please make suggestions too. Some of the items came from others, most notably from quark. Thanks.

However, I'm wondering if there's any resource list (book, website, media, etc.) that help accelerated learner in anyway. Something like those posted in the Bilingual Forum. Maybe I can help with the organization. Per subject or per age group, etc. Plus, if some tips / tricks can be thrown in, they would be handy. Thanks.
