Squigz are the coolest thing out in constructive play toys. Simply apply pressure to two Squigz and they connect to one another -- or to any other solid, non-porous surface. They flex. They stuck. These little suckers suck kids into creativity.

A quick walking tour of my town would introduce you to the pizza shop that shows second-run movies in a theater so you can have pizza and beer with your show; the jewelers that has been in business since 1939; the one-screen movie theatre that still lights up the bright neon sign every month; an ice cream shop run by a non-profit that has a mission to provide assistance to the developmentally disabled; the book store; a record store; coffee shop; bakery; stationary supply store; our own seedy dive bar with gilded velvet wall paper {and the best juke box ever}; the fabric store, the health food store, and the funeral home that has been respectfully interring the members of our community for generations.

I’ve been doing story time in one form or another at my store for 20 years.  Picking a good read-aloud always depends on the audience. Two-year olds will listen to Where’s Spot or The Very Hungry Caterpillar over and over again, week-in and week-out. It’s a classic and always a winner.  But two-year-olds aren’t the only ones who love a great story!
