Posting will be intermittent next week. I’ll be around, but then again so will The Five-Year-Old, and as she is ever so much more interesting than my computer, I’ll be spending my time with her.
I’ll post as often as I can, but don’t be surprised if I miss a day or two. You know I’ll make it up to you.
In the meantime, here are a few articles that caught my eye last week:
- Your children want you (The Power of Moms): Posted by a friend of mine on Facebook this morning, this article is the reason why I’m planning to cool it on the blogging while my daughter’s on vacation. Well, that and this.
- Maryland offers $200 bounty for capture of rogue snakehead fish (Time Newsfeed)
- Origins of domesticated cattle traced to a mere 80 animals (Cosmos Magazine)
- Baby sloth hugs little girl
Finally, this week’s free sampler from Dover Publishing includes lots of activities designed to help you and your Caterpickle get ready for Earth Day this month (or simply fill pockets of unexpected down time this Spring Break). Fact-filled coloring pages and mazes are available from the following titles:
- Amazing Carbon Footprint Facts
- Exploring Ecosystems
- Eco-Mania Mazes
- Green Power: Earth-Friendly Energy Through the Ages
There are also samples from theirstained glass coloring book, a book on spotting differences in art, lots of nature-themed mazes and games, and text excerpts from books in the Dover children’s collection.
