Wordless Wednesday: Sick Day

This fall, The Six-Year-Old caught a particularly nasty cold that dragged on for what seemed like weeks and weeks. In truth, it was five consecutive days of canceling playdates and school appearances. Skipping school wasn’t too bad, The Six-Year-Old assures me, but missing those playdates was a total drag.

Fortunately, The Six-Year-Old had Encyclopedia Brown’s Book of Wacky Crimes to cheer her up.

About Shala Howell

I spent two decades helping companies like Bell Labs, Juniper Networks, and a genetic testing company that was later acquired by CVS translate some of the world’s most complicated concepts into actionable, understandable English. Now I'm working on a much harder problem -- fostering children’s curiosity and engagement in the scientific, artistic, and linguistic world that surrounds them. The first book in my Caterpickles Parenting Series, What’s That, Mom?, focuses on how to use public art to nurture children’s curiosity in the world around them. My next book will focus on science, and how parents without a science degree can answer their curious child's questions without enrolling in a college level refresher course. In the meantime, you can find me blogging about life with a very curious Eleven-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, chatting about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, and tweeting about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.

    we loved sick days so much we decided to give up being sick and just unschool instead…I have so many great memories of lazy mornings reading on the couch with the girls–each of us caught up in our own book, or reading out loud to each other…it was the best!
