This is it! May 17, 2013 – a day to celebrate food! Not just any food, though, good cooked food, natural food and healthy food. Food Revolution Day!
With all the talk of GMO’s, all the myths about how expensive healthy food is and how inconvenient it is to cook your own meal, this day highlights the rubbish of all those lessons.
Chef Jamie Oliver starter a revolution with food and it’s easy to participate. Grow a garden, invite friends over for a home cooked meal, share recipes and educate. Have fun with it, knowing that it is easy to eat healthy, delicious and inexpensive!
Join us for a Food Revolution today and tell us how you’re making the right choice!
Try to read a book to your child at least once a day. No matter how busy you are this should be your number one priority to instill literacy values and the desire to learn in your child and our next generation.
I find it incredibly amazing to read a book to my three year old one and have him eagerly flip through the pages to recite the story. Ok, not word for word but he listens, learns and memorizes and that’s what reading is all about!
Yesterday I was able to catch our story time on video and, with permission from Robert Munschhimself, want to show it to you.
You may notice he appears to be bored in this video as this was our second time recording (first time was wonderful but memory card was full :( ) and the always exciting garbage trucks were at our house. I just want to emphasize how easy it is to take a few minutes to do this, once a day, and celebrate a good story and your ability to read!
Watch out Little Mermaid! There’s a new tail in town.
Helene Boudreau is an author I aspire to be. Although this is a book targeted for readers 9 and up I thoroughly enjoyed it and I’m 30! I also kept wondering where this book was when I was young and impressionable. :)
Jade is a young girl trying to get through teenage life. With mockery, crushes, and lies she could be found in each one of us but then she becomes someone incredible we all only hope to become some day. We learn what it means to be a best friend, what secrets are ok to keep and to give someone the benefit of the doubt – always.
Friends are forgiving when you need them to be the most and this tale teaches the lesson of being yourself when all else fails. A delightful tale that beautifully transitions from land to water and back with an imagination all children would love to have.
Ode to Ickyis a book I received as a review copy and read through my Kindle to my 2 year old son.
He LOVED the pictures as he’s very much into naming things right now and giggled and yelled “pee-u” throughout. Even though it was black and white he connected immediately to this story, as did I.
The story is simply but whimsical and absolutely had me wanting more. It followed Candy, a young girl who has a stinky cat and a big sister in her family. Always the entrepreneur Candy learned a trick from her big sister and decided to use Icky, the cat too lazy to bathe, as a money making opportunity.
This book was a great introduction to Ikcy and Candy but it certainly made me want to know more as I connected with Candy’s antics immediately.
When I get the printed book I’m sure my son will love it as much as I do!
YMCA is all about fun, activity and good times and Saturday June 4th YMCA Greater Moncton offers all of this specifically for kids and it’s FREE!!

There may even be a surprise or two for you to enjoy!
