Rainy Day Fun

A grand time was had by all at the Healthy Harvest Celebration today in Gorham, Maine! More than 100 kids and their parents came out of the rain to celebrate the release of Mystery Vine and the awesome new Gorham Fitness Studio. Book-related arts & crafts, energetic games and dances led by GFS owner Jesse Coleman, story time breaks to soothe the crowd, fabulous face painting created by terrific volunteers, healthy snacks donated by community businesses, and a grand finale movie all made for a wonderful day!

Kids Connect to Nature

On a recent visit to Eight Corners School in Scarborough, Maine, I talked to kids about the amazing critters that wriggle, waggle, scamper and scoot in and around my pond. We acted out Scoot! with animal movements and Turtle Splash! with puppets. Mrs. Wood's second graders sent me a gorgeous stack of drawings about my visit. I wish you could see them all! Here's Brendan's awesome drawing of the critters at Frog Song Pond.
