A Kid’s Guide to Chicago

Self-promotion is vexing. But I did want you to know that I have a new article out today. A Kid’s Guide to Chicago appeared this afternoon on the vacation rental site, Dwellable.

Go, valiant readers! Swarm their servers with traffic and glowing commentary!

Most importantly, when you’re done with that, get on your bike and ride the Lakefront Trail (or whatever bike trail is closest to you) while the good weather holds.

Postscript: The Seven-Year-Old is super excited about this, and wants me to post this very special drawing that she created to commemorate the occasion.

WWI Flying Ace by The Seven-Year-Old Howell. Text below the picture reads: "'Headquarters must be planning a new drive. I don't recognize alot of these new men.' The World War I flying ace muttering." (Artwork: The Seven-Year-Old Howell, based on a cartoon by Charles M Schulz)

In other news, regular blogging resumes this week, with the first post scheduled for Wordless Wednesday. (Ironic, isn’t it?)

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, Did Dinosaurs Have Belly Buttons?, is currently planned for release in 2018. In the meantime, you can find me blogging about life with a very curious Ten-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.

    The MSI is fabulous (of course we had the best guides)! Congratulations on the publication! On the vexation question, I think we could have a very interesting blog series going. I find this to be more of a problem with women (the stereotype at least runs true in my experience), and I think it’s interesting.
