Native Americans and European Immigrants

November is Native American Heritage Month. As part of the celebration the Library of Congress has a website with the stories of Native American Veterans. It’s as part of its Veterans History Project which collects the stories of the men and women who served their county. The first sentence on the page read, “American Indians have eagerly served a government which did not always keep its word to their ancestors.”

Watch Me Grow

During the first three years of life, many developmental milestones are achieved, which makes this an exciting time for both children and parents.  Everything in their world is new, and they are taking in an inconceivable amount of information. 

Unlike adults, they do not have past experience, nor an understanding of logic to help navigate their way. Consequently, there will certainly be growing pains along their path of discovery, but parents can support their children by simply talking and spending quality time with them.

Squirrels of New York
October is Squirrel Awareness Month and there is a varied and robust Literature of Squirrels Stories as I noted last week. As I was reading through the many delightful examples available at the library, I discovered a number of stories with a common setting. They were squirrel stories set in New York City, in the borough of Manhattan, and specifically in the parks of that borough, with the most frequent setting Central Park.
