Idaho Tall Tale

Rain, lightning, thunder! The storm came out of nowhere. One minute the kiddos were happily drawing with sidewalk chalk in the warm, yellow sunshine.

Finding Books for Kids at the Library

Our local library has this genius system that I am completely in love with.  I get online, go the the library website, hit the card catalog button, and type something into the "keyword" bar, hit search, then refine my search to the "Juvenile" location.
