Library Love

 She placed second at her school's Art Fest


because she found these books at our local library
and fell in love with simple machines.


Great books inspire art.

Your local library has these titles and more.

Summer Streaking...

Do you read aloud to your children?
 Your spouse?
 Yourself? 
{Hmm. Your dog?}






I do all of the above. 
And more. 



Alice Ozma inspires me. 
Her father amazes me.
His selfless dedication as a elementary school librarian alone
would be enough to impress a saint. But what he accomplishes 
with his daughter makes him my hero. 




Her father started reading to her every night from 4th grade until her first night away from home at college.

Would you give streaking a try?


What are some of the obstacles 
preventing daily reading?
