Remembering Amy Krouse Rosenthal

Last week, we lost a beautiful contributor to children's literature. Amy Krouse Rosenthal passed away at age 51, leaving behind a legacy of over 30 children's books.

Impressively, all of these books had been published between 2005-2017. So this means within a span of 11 years and three months, Rosenthal published more books than most authors do in a lifetime.

She will be missed.

Family Maker Fun

Everyone had a great time at our Family Maker Fun program on Wednesday, January 4th. We played with Legos, K'Nex, Zoob tubes and more!  We made some amazing structures with Keva planks and Brackitz and built marble roller coasters.  We also learned about electronics and had fun making some working models with Snap Circuits Jr.  And we folded some simple paper helicopters!  Be sure to check out our next Family Maker Fun event on Wednesday, March 1st (registration date is February 15th).

Winter is right around the corner...

We had a small snow dusting last night. This can only mean that winter is almost here! Celebrate winter by reading some winter/snow themed books.

After nighttime falls and everyone is asleep in their beds, a group of fun-loving snowmen jump into action and have their own bit of fun while no one is around to see.

Peter is delighted with the deep snow and plays outdoors all day.

When his snowman comes to life, a little boy invites him into his home and in return is taken on a flight high above the countryside.

After Nicki accidentally drops his mitten in the forest it becomes an object of curiosity for a mole, a rabbit, a badger, a tiny brown mouse, a big brown bear, and others, as they all crawl into it.

Stella and her younger brother, Sam, spend a winter's day exploring its many wonders by pelting each other with snowballs, making snow angels, and visiting the snow-white forest.

When his brother refuses to come outside, a child plays by himself in the snow and creates an imaginary world.
