The Story of The White House

 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, DC 20500 is probably the most famous address in America. It is the location of  The White House,  which is official residence of the president of the United States. Given it's age, over 200 years old, it has many stories to tell.

April Showers Bring May Flowers

Children love to get their hands dirty and April is a perfect month to start a garden. After a long day in the sun I like to relax by sitting down in my favorite chair and read a few books.  Below are the books I picked this week to celebrate Spring. Enjoy.

Non-fiction

Books in Bloom

 The books listed below are ones that I enjoy reading each spring. My favorite book on this list is Miss Rumphius by Barbara Cooney. This story is about a little girl named Alice, who becomes Miss Rumphius, or  a.k.a. "the lupine lady." Her goal for herself and others is to make the world a more beautiful place. This classic picture book offers charming illustrations and a meaningful message for everyone.
