What's not to love about spring? The sun brightens our days a little bit longer. Kids get to explore outside a little longer, too. As we appreciate the beauty that the natural world offers us, it's only fair that we return the favor. How? Encourage your child to respect our planet and to accept her role in protecting it. Check out our suggested Earth Day tips and activities.

Just For You: Call the Midwife Season 7

It’s 1962 and times are changing from the beacon of the contraceptive pill and the shadow of infamous gangsters, to the new welfare policies introduced by the government. As they strive to help mothers and families cope with the demands of childbearing, disability, disease and social prejudice, our beloved medics must make choices – and fight battles – of their own… Sundays, beginning April 2, 7-8 pm.

Happy spring and I hope you and your children enjoy these resources and activities. Go out and enjoy the outdoors! Take care, Nancy Tooraen
