Houston's Garden Hot Spots

         

The financial downfall caused everyone in America to be more cautious of how they spend money. Like many other families, I decided to stay in Houston for my vacation.
I started gardening as a child, and I still adore digging in the dirt. When looking for something to do, it was perfectly natural for me to spend time at Mercer Arboretum.  Best of all, my visit to the arboretum was FREE!

Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month @ The Atascocita Branch Library

In September, many children and their families enjoyed the puppet show and craft celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month.  We wanted to inform you of another great program that you will not want to miss!

The Houston Grand Opera will present the story "How Nanita Learned to Make Flan."
Nanita makes a pair of shoes that magically transport her far away from home. With the help of an Old Woman and parrot she returns home and learns the secret of making delicious flan.
This program is best suited for school aged children.  Registration is not required.

When: Wednesday, October 14th @ 3:30 pm
 

Happy Birthday to Paul Fleischman

Birthdays are a time to celebrate. Since, Paul Fleischman's birthday was this month, I thought that it would be a great time to share a few of my favorite books by this author.

Paul Fleischman was awarded the Newbery Medal for his book: Joyful Noise: Poems for Two Voices in 1989Undoubtedly, this is his most famous work. I admire this book, but it may surprise you that it is not one of my personal favorites.
