A couple of things to update before I go heat up leftovers and pick some silverbeet leaves to throw on top (oooh, exotic!). I was supposed to go to the fruit and veg shop today but when I pulled up outside I discovered I left my wallet at home. Durrr. It’s times like this I love my huckery old silverbeet plants.
But that’s not the point.
I wanted to share this cool link from the Lammily doll people about the creation of their new, realistic boy doll, and please enjoy this delicious gift from the folks at TRUCE (Teachers Resisting Unhealthy Children’s Entertainment) … this about using books to spark play.
This is a link from the LA Times about the fear raising of a nature-phobic generation (not here. Not yet. Thank God(dess)…) AND you will see in today’s picture that Little Girl is reading the latest issue of Tots to Teens, which features a wee article I wrote.
I wonder what it’s about. I’m being silly. It’s about Wonder.
Finally, a giant shout out to my friend and colleague (*frolleague?) Sarah Best. She is a writer, a teacher, and a like minded play enthusiast who spent her birthday weekend here with her husband, staying with my family. Arohanui!! x x x
