The children’s book, Molly and the Sword, tells of a young girl who, with the help of a mysterious horseman, overcomes obstacles on the road to success as a violinist. It has garnered rave reviews from music and education magazines. Here to talk about the book is author Robert Shlasko.
KB: I had to write a song about it. I will introduce myself and people will still hear me say [kee-nan]. They will swear that that’s what they heard me say! I don’t try to convince them otherwise, but I’m glad there’s a song that kind of speaks on that. Now I can move on from that. The reason it’s the first single is because it’s the song that I least like on the record. It’s a lug head song. The beat is very simple. It sounds like Beasties or Rick Rubin-esque. It will get your attention but it’s real simple. It’s not the deepest album track.

KB: Never. Never. My rhymes are really simple and plain. I’ve been writing since fourth grade. There were times where I didn’t rhyme. I would just write these free-flowing streams of consciousness. Now I’m at the place where every 16 bars it’s the same rhyme. In some respects people may find that monotonous, but for me it’s evolution. Because I was never that simple before. I never allowed myself to be that simple and try to say something somewhat profound. Or at least attempt to do so. In order for people to receive it, it needs to be simple. I had to write that, but I didn’t know how I was gonna do it. Then my partner Milk found that sample watching VH1’s where are they now or something.

Option one was a Daycare Near Me across the street from the elementary school. The day care looked like it would work out fine for our 4 year old, especiallly with their inclusion of martial art. But, this school had high rates and the director was impolite. She was abrupt and verging on irritating. This caused us to keep looking.
My first trip out here was for the Park Ave Festival, which I continue to enjoy. The kids love all of the local parades, and of course any of the Red Wings games.
Your children are not forced to be compliant. They are not stuck in a chair for hours on end and they are not treated like adults. They are treated like the children they are. They are allowed to grow gracefully and confidently. They are able to communicate and interact with the world around them. By sending your children to a Montessori school you make it possible for them to be instructed without them losing interest or becoming bored. Everything is presented in an interesting manner that is easy to understand. Your child will be able to learn at his or her own pace, and when they have mastered a certain skill, they will be able to move on to the next. With this method of instruction, no child is left behind or by the wayside. No child is pushed beyond his or her capabilities.
