My husband, recently told me that I buy cleaning products like most women buy shoes. At first, I denied it. Then, I took a closer look at my cleaning cabinet, and I realized that it was stuffed with items I don’t even like.
Everyone knows that art activities are fun. Did you know that they also help build skills such as; creative thinking, spatial awareness, problem solving?

The books listed below are ones that I enjoy reading each spring. My favorite book on this list is Miss Rumphius by Barbara Cooney. This story is about a little girl named Alice, who becomes Miss Rumphius, or a.k.a. "the lupine lady." Her goal for herself and others is to make the world a more beautiful place. This classic picture book offers charming illustrations and a meaningful message for everyone.
This week, Miss Susan made a shamrock craft with the children who attended Story Pals (pre-school) storytime. We have two other options for families who would like to participate in the holiday craft program. Space is limited.
