AND….I have to give this book a plug….this is one of the best Children’s Non-Fiction Picture Books I’ve ever read! I highly recommend it. It gets an A++ and 5 Stars in my book! I have read a LOT of children’s books over the last 11 years of parenting and 8 years of educating the children and this book is along the same quality as the beloved D’Aulaire books and the non-fiction books by Jean Fritz.

I am SO excited about this and can’t wait to go. I know it’s Mother’s Day – but this is one I really can’t miss. Royce wants to go and take the kids – and so I hope Mary and Adrian and George and Mom will want to go and enjoy it. If all else fails – there IS a golf driving ranging just down the street from Laurie Auditorium, and a park, and the Zoo, and the Japanese Tea Gardens…if anyone doesn’t WANT to go see and hear what will probably be something totally magnificent!!
