This page is dedicated to helping kids grow in a world where daily pressure and instant gratification is expected. I will focus on two main topic – encouraging kids to get out in nature and to read books. These two things alone can help anyone cope. This sight is for positive comments ONLY where we can come together as a community, helping each other raise well-rounded kids. I encourage you to share posts on these topics as well as other ideas, inspirations, and even your own heart-felt experiences concerning these issues. Remember that kids are fascinated by nature discovery and we only have to foster that love through reading about beautiful far-away landscapes or walking in our own backyards.

Also, as a birdwatcher, I may post some lovey birdies! And from time to time I’ll mention my children’s book for those looking for a story about backyard birds. Again I encourage you to participate and I hope you enjoy my content.
