The Sneetches Musical at Children’s Theatre Company

The Sneetches by Dr. Seuss is now a musical at Children’s Theatre Company. It was a bit more mature than I was expecting. Based on the “All Ages” recommendation and the target age of the book, I took my five-year-old son.

Five may have been young for The Sneetches musical, but we had a fun day and made good memories.

Maple Syruping with Kids in the Twin Cities

March is maple syrup month in Minnesota, and with an abundance of nature centers around the Twin Cities, we have ample opportunities to learn about and participate in the maple syruping process. Maple syrup events usually contain one or more of the following activities: tapping the maple trees, collecting the sap, boiling it into syrup, and the best part — according to my kids, anyway — a sample of the finished product.

World Read Aloud Day – February 16, 2017

Did you know that February 16, 2017 is World Read Aloud Day? A 2015 study found that children are exposed to a larger vocabulary from picture books read aloud than from conversations with adults. We tend to speak with the same 5000 most popular words; while books — even picture books — are more likely to use words outside that popular 5000. Sometimes reading aloud can be easier said than done, but we have some resources to make it easier – even on the difficult days.
