Invisible Toolbox

Kim Jocelyn Dickson, author of The Invisible Toolbox: The Power of Reading to Your Child from Birth to Adolescence, believes that every child begins kindergarten with a lunchbox in one hand and an invisible toolbox in the other. Drawing on her experience as a parent and educator along with recent research in neuroscience, Kim explains why and how reading aloud from birth is one of the greatest gifts we can give our children.

September Update

Happy Labour Day weekend everyone! As a retired teacher, this always seemed like New Year’s to me but I must confess to a great relief that I am not preparing to return to schools on Tuesday.

There are a few items of interest for you:

1. From Debbie Colquhoun – “As I am working, I will not be at the meeting on September 8. But I wanted to use this opportunity to thank everyone involved with another successful Kiwanis Staples back to school barbecue. To those that donated, to those that volunteered, or helped in anyway, a sincere thank you. A special thanks to Kathie and Chuck, who’s expertise was so very much appreciated! It was a great day!”
