Travel to Korea via children’s books, food, and culture with me as I share my husband’s family history of the Yi Dynasty or Choson period, considered the Golden Age of Korea.
This week we have picture book author Erica S. Perl with two great photos (and more to come as she generously sent me four!). Marci, a Special Education Reading Recovery teacher helps kids learn to read and comprehend even if they are up to 5 years behind their peers! She’s true unsung hero in our community! Finally, thank you to Capability:Mom with some cuties reading.
I finally have a new header for my blog after thinking about it for over a year. It was one of those “To Do” list items that was an education in overcoming obstacles up to the very end. Thank you to my Twitter Friend @IanChia for the technical assist/Tech fairy Godfather that fixed my header.
If you don’t live in Newton, MA, use my list. It’s a great list. It also comes with great resources of websites to keep you learning, reading and having fun. Please see Capability Mom’s post on that! I have to hightail it to the library the next town over to get books for my kids!
The last hurrah was picking up money with our butts. First of all, a $10 bill is not enough. Secondly, the money needs to be crisp! And lastly, we all can do it. Yes, ladies who lunch can pick up money with our butts! An interesting and productive day, to say the least.
The circle of life thing. Yes. That is a hard lesson for anyone, much less a child and their beloved pet. And with a puppy, the circle of life will eventually come around. When this happens, I recommend this book, The Tenth Good Thing about Barney by Judith Viorst.
