Eww- Why Kids Love Nature!!

 A small spice bush caterpillar. As it grows, it turns wonderful greens and yellows. It will eventually become a beautiful black spice bush swallowtail butterfly.
One of the children flipped a leaf to see why it looked to lacy. There was a host of oak sawfly larvae.

It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas

Doing market research is so much fun at this time of many Christmas books and so little time. A mom at the library had a great idea. She was planning to wrap each picture book separately. Her children will open one each day and they'll read them together as a count down to Christmas.

I Can't Wait!!
