Darlene’s Commentary: My seven-year-old grandson Hunter asked if I had any picture books from when I was little that could be used in his Weed Show project. A couple days later, I was looking through my bookshelf, pulled out a book, and caused an “avalanche” of several books onto the floor. When the dust settled, I immediately spotted a very old book (1902) that was in the pile upside down and open, and I feared it had suffered some damage. When I picked it up and turned it over, it was open to a poem entitled “Picture Books in Winter” which was pretty much what Hunter had asked for! The book, “A Child’s Garden of Verses,” belonged to my mom and had been in our house forever. Now some might think this was just a coincidence, but I know just how much my mom loved books and just how much she loved the Weed Show, and I’m sure she would help in any way she could. Thanks, Mom. By the way, Hunter took home a 1st place ribbon, and his little brother Eli, who’s not quite three, took home a 2nd place ribbon! How’s that for Weed Show stars?
The Wonder Valley Book Program is like a little library, right inside our community center. Books, DVDs, audio books and videocassettes are all available to be checked out for a month at a time. And
Thought for Today: Kites were used during the Civil War to deliver letters and newspapers.
Until next time . . . remember to take time to enjoy the WONDERs all around us.
