Something new & a little different has slithered into the Hello, World book series… REPTILES
I’ll admit I’m squeamish when it come to snakes but, when you learn about something
it often takes away some of the fear.
Crawl, slither, hiss, bite (yikes) there’s a lot of reptiles to explore!
*Ophidiophobia is the fear of snakes.

Let’s start with Planet Earth- the place we call home.
This book is packed with fun educational visuals.
Maps, a variety of different habitats & a classroom of kiddos
doing their part to contribute to a healthy world.
It’s my hope that by sharing the beauty of our planet with
little ones we might instill a curiosity & desire to protect &
preserve our amazing Planet Earth. It’s one of a kind!

Nonetheless or should I say nevermore here we are. If you're not familair with the podcast LORE now is the perfect time to listen. It's slightly unsettling historic folktales that makes you feel a little like you're sitting around the campfire. (Only improvement would be some s'mores!)
*Most the stories are kid friendly for ages 10 & up.

Yellow makes me happy... how about you? I've found myself gravitating to it the last month. Maybe it's the September golden light that has inspired me or maybe it's just that little lift it seems like we could all use right now. A little fun fact *I like yellow so much my kitchen cabinets are bright yellow.
(I don't regret it!)

In 41 days (or sooner by mail) it will be time to vote!
I hope you have a plan in place to participate in our democracy. (it's trickier this time)
If you're not registered or curious about checking your status you can visit
If you feel like you'd like a blueprint on how you'll vote this November you can visit
planyourvote.org Both sites are tools available to you.
Since my son was a toddler I'd take him to the polling center with me so he could see me vote.
At the end we'd both grab a sticker & we'd talk about how it's important to vote for what you believe in.
That everyone has a voice & that the beautiful thing about our country is that we can have a say in how things go.
This year I'll have him sit at the kitchen table with me when my ballot arrives and I'll once again talk to him about why voting is an important tradition to preserve.
Kids model our behavior, please vote & let them know why you do it & what it means to you.

How Do Apples Grow? is part of my Hello, World! early learning book series. It came out a couple years ago & remains one of my favorites to revisit this time of the year. We always enjoyed autumn trips to the orchard but, to be honest I wasn't really sure how apples grow?

In my first house there were morels that would grow in the front yard.
