Special Needs Week

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?

Professor Owl’s Book of the Month Review – April, 2010

Book Review by Sylvia McGrath for Professor Owl’s Book Corner

The Voyageurs

(A North Woods Canoe Adventure)

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

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.
