Folks need to understand that children with special needs are not sick. They are not searching for a cure, just acceptance. This week is for special needs education. Ninety three percent of the people will not copy and paste this. Will you be part of the seven percent that will and will you leave it on your wall for at least an hour?

Book Review by Sylvia McGrath for Professor Owl’s Book Corner
By Bruce Stacy
Bruce Stacy’s writing paints this book with dense colour. His characters are so well-developed that I feel I know them all very well and that I was actually on the trip myself fishing and camping. I don’t want to give anything away here, but it was a thoroughly satisfying read; a book that any young adult would enjoy and relate to.
Although I do not intend to rough it, the book has put me in the mood to take a trip this summer and enjoy the country side, wild life and even do a little fishing

Ben, a 13-year-old boy, is invited to accompany his Uncle Jake and their French-Canadian guide on their annual canoe-camping-fishing trip into the North Woods. They fly to Duluth, Minnesota where they are met by their voyageur-like guide, Mick. Mick then drives them to the fringes of civilization and they launch their canoes into the wilderness.
The trip is an awakening for Ben, who overcomes his lack of self-confidence while learning outdoor lore, the history of the North Woods, the voyageur culture, and solving a longstanding family mystery. This story is part educational, part history and part mystery wrapped in the magic of the Northland.

Over the past few months we have made quite a few changes to our newsletter, and we hope you are enjoying them.
This month we will also cover area’s for young adults since our Variety Village hero is older than usual. You will find out how Variety Village is able to assist him to be a little more independent by helping him to improve his reading skills. Our book of the month is directed to our older readers. We will, however still have books listed for every age along with creative projects, cooking treats and puzzles both easy and difficult, so that no one is left out.
