Moira has the perfect birthday planned. "I want to invite grade 1, grade 2, grade 3, grade 4, grade 5, grade 6, aaaaand kindergarten." Mom says no, so Moira asks her dad.

Dad says no, but somehow everybody in every grade "...aaaaand kindergarten" shows up for the party. The house is full, and the kids are hungry, but luckily Moira knows what to do to save the day.

You see a bug with a cool green body skittering across a picnic table. It stops and seems to be staring at you.

The first thing out of your mouth is:
A. Eww! A bug!
Or
B. Oooh! A bug!
 
If you are the kind of kid who thinks bugs are cool, summertime was made for you. In summer, bugs are most active. You can learn a lot about bugs by capturing them and studying them for a while before letting them go.

Summer Reading Is Coming!

Imagine lying in your hammock, completely spellbound by an amazing book, during a beautiful summer afternoon. Crickets are chirping, a soft breeze is blowing, and you are so relaxed (or, maybe if you're reading a thriller, on edge--but in a good way). Or, perhaps you are a parent longing for fun and free entertainment for your kids during a quiet afternoon or to refresh your family's library with a new batch of books and DVDs to enjoy together.
