Stimulating Summer Writing
by Rebekah Pringle
Sunshine, swimming pools, sleeping in, summer camps, state fairs—and stimulating writing. Writing? Stimulating writing? Who includes that in plans for a fun and memorable summer? You might. And perhaps after trying it out, your children might as well.
Maintaining the skills and knowledge of students throughout the much-debated period of time known as “summer break” continues to reoccur in educational discussions around the world. Some have decided to simply eliminate these months, while others maintain the necessity of time away from formal studies.
Summer Reading Contest
It’s hard to believe that summer is just around the corner. The northeast has had one of the harshest winters in 30 years, and it’s not letting us go just yet. As I write this, the weather forecast for Lancaster, Pa. is temperatures below freezing and a possibility of flurries late tonight. What I wouldn’t give for a sunny day on the beach: toes in the sand and a good book in hand. And speaking of good books, it’s about time for our annual Summer Reading Contest.
Why the Three Little Pigs Aren’t “Friends” with the Big Bad Wolf:
What Really Happened to the Three Little Pigs
by Asher Donohue
Once upon a time, three little pigs set off from their home in the country to go into the world and find their fortune. As they were packing their bags, their mother only told them one thing: beware of the big, bad wolf. The trio travelled all around the land but finally found their way to Suburbia, where they all chose to start their new lives.

Still deciding what to get that special woman in your life for Mother’s Day? How about a delicious buttercream-frosted cookie? With each $100 order you can receive a $5 gift card and a cookie from Cheryl’s Cookies. Or with a $200 order you can get a $10 gift card and cookie. But you must ask for it. Simply add item COOKIE to your shopping cart. If you place your order over the phone, ask for the Cookie Special.
