Dreaming Big

Thursday, May 28th, 2020

Yesterday's scrubbed Spacex launch has my kids asking a lot of questions about space and space travel. What a great time to work some fun learning into our day, with so much to explore and ponder. From rocket science to planets, there's something fun to focus on for all those curious minds out there.

We are excitedly looking forward to the launch rescheduled for Saturday, but in the meantime, here are some great books for those young people in your life curious about what's out there.

Trees For Kids and Their Grown Ups

Monday, May 18th, 2020

Spring has been cold and slow coming here in Northern Michigan. We've had little bits of warm weather, but as I wandered the woods this week, the trillium is just starting to open, and the trees were just starting to leaf out. Skunk cabbage is popping up with lovely chartreuse leaves and trout lilies are opening. 

I can't wait until those trees leaf out though with their perfect little leaves, in a rainbow of green. The kids and I will definitely be spending more time outside, taking it in. So in celebration of leaves, here's a collection of book all about trees!

For Your Littlest Graduates

With the abrupt end to in school learning a lot of kids are preparing to go on to a new grade or a new school and won't have the opportunity to celebrate or make those transitions as they normally would. There are so many creative things happening as we learn new ways to celebrate, with virtual gatherings, yard signs, and car parades. One thing that has stayed the same though, is the gift of a book!
