Monday Pep Talk No. 36
3 FUN THINGS TO DO THIS WEEK
Celebrate National Transportation Week by exploring some of the ways people got around before the Industrial Revolution.
Hit your library for Biographers Day (Monday). We published some of our favorite women’s history biographies in March and will pretty much never stop raving about Lerner’s STEM Trailblazer biographies, but you can find a biography on almost anyone.
May 18 is International Museum Day. Take a field trip to a museum in your neighborhood that you’ve never visited.
3 IDEAS FOR THIS WEEK’S DINNERS
Upgrade taco night with double pork carnitas.
Easy, endlessly adaptable simple California style omelets are a perfect vehicle for a great farmers market haul or for cleaning out the veggie bin.
Kick off official grilling season with honey grilled chicken with citrus salad.
ONE GREAT READALOUD
I Lived on Butterfly Hill, a story about a girl who’s sent to live with her aunt in Maine when a coup destabilizes her family’s life in an imagined version of Chile, makes a great conversation starter for Latino Books Month. Older kids may enjoy comparing the events in the story to the history of Chile.
