Welcome to Volume Six of Alphabet Glue! Between the baby, the big girl and some important birthdays, March has been a busy, busy month here at our house. But it has also brought us a number of unexpectedly warm and sunny days; days that were perfect for crafting the garden-themed projects in this issue of Alphabet Glue.
In this newest issue, Alphabet Glue returns to its roots, so to speak, with a collection of activities and booklists designed to encourage everyone to get out into the garden, to make the most of your library visits and to discover simple, seasonal inspiration for writing with children.
There are books that fit in a pocket and have pages that you can plant. There is a paper parachute that carries your imagination up into the air and back down to the earth. Fold origami pots from newsprint and craft a mini-garden. Trek to the library with one of four brand new, themed booklists full of great reading recommendations for kids of all ages. Make a paper chain with ideas for spring writing, drawing and doing, and grab a new link each day for a gentle push towards a different adventure.
Write poems, plant seeds, dream of flight. Spring, the season where possibilities abound, has arrived and we have so much to do!
