Use Basic Chemistry to Create a Crystal Project

 If you only want to checkout one book this week, I would suggest that you get Science and Craft Projects with Wildlife, by Ruth Owen. Why?  It includes the instructions on how to make crystal "rocks' using borax.  This was one of my favorite things to do as a kid, and every child that I have shared it with, absolutely loves it! 

Friendly Reminder, Pokémon Club is this Thursday!

 For this Program Only!

 Legendary Pokemon will be handed out by our presenter, while supplies last.  Participants will need to bring their DS and Pokemon X or Y to take advantage of this opportunity. 

A Melodious Tale

 This is a lovely picture book that has been loosely based on an article that ran in the Washington Post several years back. It is a story that stuck with me;  I was delighted to learn that it is now written in a format that I can share with young people. I hope that you enjoy it as much as I have.

History Tells a Great Story

 The lives of others can not only be interesting, but also a great source to learn life's lessons.  Here are a few that I recently read and I thought that you would like as well. Enjoy!

Wimpy Kid Online Egg Hunt

I know that there are tons of readers who love Jeff Kinney's books. If you are one of them, I would like to tell you about a fun online Egg Hunt that I found on the Wimpy Kid website. 

"Have you noticed that there are TONS of hidden eggs scattered thoughout Hard Luck? Here's your chance to find them all and win a Wimpified portrait drawn by Jeff Kenney! To enter, play this game by clicking on all the hidden eggs, and count them up as you go. At the end, tell us how many you've found by entering your guess (here).

Are you Ready for the Eclipse?

 

"If you live in North America, the overnight hours of April 14-15 will be ones to gape at the sky. Mars comes to within 57.4 million miles of our planet, making its closest approach to us since January 2007, and North America will have a ringside seat to see a total lunar eclipse. The total eclipse begins at 3:07 a.m. EDT and will last seventy-eight minutes."  Joe Rao, Natural History, April 2014.
