Title: Hello! Hello!

Title: Hyperion Books

I was talking to Tom, a good friend of mine, who is someone you guys out there might be more familiar with as one of the duo from Toe Jam Puppet Band. (P.S. - If you’ve never heard of the Toe Jam Puppet Band - look up their schedule - they are fantastic!) Tom and I were discussing his recent departure from everything cyber. He wanted to focus on the real things in life. It made me think of this book. A simple but powerful story of what can happen when you stop texting and actually look around once in a while!

As an added bonus - click on the pic of the book above to watch the video trailer for the book!

I have the distinct pleasure of announcing that Plymouth Public Library has decided to host a Builing Stories Workshop!  This is for 2nd-5th graders and will begin Sunday, February 24th.  We will meet each week at 1:00pm - Registration starts on Feb 10th!

I am very sorry to report that the show for the Carver Library for Wednesday Morning has been cancelled due to a family emergency.  The show has already been rescheduled for February 20th at 10:30am.  Sorry for the short notice.

I am heading out to the Plympton Library for a show at 11:00 - who’s coming with me?  Click on the pic for more info!

Come one, come all!  This Saturday we will be having another Dad’s Group at the Plymouth Public Library at 10:00am.  Just call (508) 830-4444 to register!


I have added a few libraries onto my calendar who are hosting the Building Stories Workshops!  If you see one near you that you’d like to attend - please call the library posted ASAP to register as space is extremely limited.  These workshops are for 2nd -5th graders.
