Kohl's Curious George 1

It’s that time again…the start of a new school year.  For our family, there’s excitement and anxiety brewing as my twins are now in the “number grades.” I’m excited that the kids will be in school for the full day! The kids, on the other hand, are dreading having to be in school “for so long.”

If you’re like me right now, you have been searching for great deals for clothes and supplies.  I always like a good deal, and I also like to know when I purchase certain items that the money is going to the right place.  I admire Kohl’s philanthropic program for which Kohl’s donates 100 percent of the net profit to children’s health and education initiatives nationwide.

My kids love to read about the mischievous adventures of Curious George while snuggling up to their own George.  And how appropriate but to read, Curious George’s First Day of School to get them excited about going back to school.

    My girls love to watch Curious George. We are going to a Curious George birthday party next month because one of my girls’ friends is obsessed, lol. I love Kohl’s too! I just got a bunch of new back-to-school clothes for my girls yesterday from Kohl’s. I love the discounts and Kohl’s cash, it makes things a little easier!

  3. I love that Kohl’s has this wonderful program, you can buy a book or stuffed animal for your little one and your purchase gives back to other kids.
