Picture the Dream!!!!

Great exhibit at the High. Took a little more effort to get a timed ticket, but totally worth it to see “Picture the Dream: The Story of the Civil Rights Movement through Children’s Books”. Saw illustrations by Faith Ringgold, Jerry Pinkney, Brian Pinkney, Kadir Nelson, Laura Freeman, Bryan Collier, graphic artist Nate Powell (of John Lewis’s March series), and so many more! Really beautifully done. See it until Nov 8th.

Plant a seed! Children’s books & stories about gardening

In My Granny’s Garden, the newest production in the Alliance Theatre’s Kathy & Ken Bernhardt Theatre for the Very Young 2020-21 season, is now streaming. In celebration of this streaming release, we have compiled a list of five children’s books that focus on the joy and curiosity that comes with planting a garden. These books are sure to delight and inspire children and parents alike to go outside, plant a seed, and see what grows!

Click on the following link for the list: https://alliancetheatre.org/content/plant-a-seed-childrens-books-stories-about-gardening

Missing community

This piece in the Washington Post really resonated with me (click on the link below). We are part of a community and being isolated, as we are, has really been difficult. Look forward to the day when things get back to how they used to be. A roomful of children, books and songs, laughter and smiles. We will get to the other side eventually.

Storytime links

I didn’t realize I could post direct links to videos posted on Facebook. So, here are the two recent storytimes I did. Hope you can access them. Miss you all! (If you get “video unavailable” just reload the web page, that seems to fix it)
