‘Corduroy’ Review at Children’s Theatre Company

Corduroy has always been one of my favorite books. Don Freeman was able to tell a timeless children’s story while also making contemporary social statements without ever feeling preachy or forced. I never noticed that as a kid though; I just loved the idea of Corduroy wandering the department store at night and finding Lisa to love him at the end. It seems fitting that this wonderful book should be made into a stage production because Don Freeman reportedly loved the theater.1

Top 10 Family Picks: April in the Twin Cities

April is the month when spring finally decides to get serious. Our Top 10 freshly-picked events have been selected to help make the most of the season:

1) Saturday Morning on the Farm | Gale Woods Farm, Minnetrista

Rise, shine and get down to Gale Woods this month for their Saturday Morning on the Farm program. Activities may vary from week to week, but you and yours should always be able to climb into the pens and coops to get up close to the animals. There is typically action in the kitchen and greenhouse as well. Read about a spring visit to the farm here. Ongoing Saturdays starting April 7, 9:30am-12pm, $5/pp. Read More

Where to Find the Minnesota Farm Babies in 2018

As soon as I can smell the wet earth and the sun is still shining at 6pm, I’m ready for a spring farm fix. Come on out and meet the fuzzy new arrivals — lambs, chicks, piglets, goats and all the rest — plus farmhands of all ages can partake in waking up the barns for spring.

I had no idea there were this many places to find Minnesota Farm Babies!


Farm Babies | Minnesota Zoo, Apple Valley | 3/23/18-4/30/18, 9am-4pm | Included in Zoo admission of $12-$18/pp + parking | In addition to getting hands-on with the babies, there are tons of other activities to enjoy out at the Wells Fargo Family Farm area of the zoo.

Saturday Mornings on the Farm | Gale Woods Farm, Minnetrista | Ongoing Saturdays 4/1/18-5/27/18, 9:30am-noon | $5/pp | Calling all farmhands! Help out with chores, spend time with the animals and participate in other spring farm activities. Closed-toe shoes required. Strollers not allowed in the barn or around animals. Read More
