I am looking for ideas of the best choose your own adventure and series of books for boys that love nature, animals, and dinos. Ages 5 and 7. They have enjoyed reading series like Magic Treehouse, Captain Underpants, and Dinosaur Cove in the past.
I am a former employee, now working at San Diego Public Library, and wanted to recommend the Adventure and Mystery Club. This group features a chapter-a-day reading of "Hound of the Baskervilles" by Arthur Conan Doyle.
Host Family Needed for Richard from Germany. I work with the non-profit Aspect Foundation International student exchange program. We have a great boy from Germany, named Richard who is looking to make his "American Dream" come true by spending the 2018-2019 school year with a host family in Stoughton. He enjoys sports, music, drawing comics, martial arts and outdoor activities. I would love to place him with a host family who shares his love of these and can provide a warm welcome to America and Stoughton! Please consider welcoming Richard to your home. I am also looking for host families for Nuria from Spain, Nicolas from France and Liv from Norway. They are all SO excited to come here to the US and Wisconsin for the coming school year. Contact me for more information or visit aspectfoundation.org to start the process of becoming a host family and search for other available students. I can answer any questions you have about hosting as I have hosted twice in the past and it was an awesome adventure! Feel free to share! Thanks, Darlene Holte 608-205-7572 [email protected]
Julia had so much fun last night at the Triwizard Tournament! My husband was so surprised that the event was free! Thank you for providing amazing free programs for our kids!
“Whimsical, thought-provoking, deftly crafted, "This Is Me, Not Robert Creeley, Speaking " clearly showcases Paul Bussan's genuine flair for deftly crafted, succinct, and memorable free verse. This brief compendium of his work is very highly recommended for personal reading lists.” -The Midwest Book Review, June, 2017
