What a beautiful weekend! It was nice to get some fresh air and be outside. Crazy that it’s happening in February - but we take what we get sometimes. This week Raising a Reader at the Pembroke Library begins again but we also end this week with an Early Childhood Fair at the Kingston Library. These events are always so much fun and it’s nice to meet all of the childcare providers in the area right under the same roof. Make sure to come and enjoy a nice morning with the kiddos!

Raising a Reader continues at the Pembroke Library this Thursday! It’s been a lot of fun so far - call the library to see if there is still space at 781-293-6771 or South Shore Family Network at 508-747-7575

  • Tuesday: Montclair School @ 9:00am & 10:00am

The Patriots win! Did everyone stay up for the whole game? Wow - it was a nail biter until the end! Let’s just say the Big Ryan household was going nuts - well, the ones who were still awake, which was everyone over the age of 8. Things were a little crazy there but we pulled it out in the end. As for my week coming up - a lighter week - will be a welcome break from the bustle of the last few weeks. People always ask if I love my job - of course I do - but the travel can get to you sometimes! So it’s nice to hang closer to home this week.

I will begin a brand new round of Raising a Reader at the Pembroke Library this Thursday! It should be a blast - to sign in and register please call the library itself at 781-293-6771 or South Shore Family Network at 508-747-7575

I love stormy weather. I know it’s not all that fun to go out in and I know that it makes everything more complicated when trying to venture somewhere with the little kiddos in tow - but something about it always comforts me. The sounds; the rain hitting the windows, the wind whistling through the trees, all of it puts me at ease in a way I can’t explain. Bad weather also makes the crowds at my storytellings grow so of course I can’t complain there! This week I travel to Kingston and North Billerica (twice!). That’s a whole lot of miles!

Here is the storytelling schedule for this week:

  • Tuesday: Hingham Library @ 4:00pm - Raising a Reader: Week 3
  • Wednesday: Growth Unlimited @ 9:00am
  • Thursday: Little Learners @ 10:30am/12:30pm
  • Friday: Little Learners @ 10:30am/12:30pm

I host a live video sharing some of my favorite songs and stories every Sunday at 7:00pm on my Facebook page - if you haven’t liked the page yet this is the perfect reason to do so!  My children join me for some classic tales and traditional songs that we share with you!  As an added bonus we give special shout-outs to anyone who says “Hi” to us during the live broadcast.

We’ve been having a blast with it so far and have so many stories to share - so go here and like the page!
