Science and Literacy

There is something about this time of year that brings out the writer in me: the colors in the sunsets and trees, the silhouette of the birds flying across the sky, and the sound of the geese honking their way south. Taking in these sites and sounds urge me to put pen to paper to write, to draw, and to capture the beauty of the world around me.
Today's post lists several resources to help you enjoy and grow with the seasonal changes to autumn with your child.  Enjoy!
