Hello and Happy Monday! We hope you enjoyed some summer fun, this weekend!
Despite spending times outdoors, we are trying to stick with our reading routine to avoid the #summerslide. We love fairy tales - they offer a sense of escape, develop the imagination, and are simply magical!

“Fairy Tales,” Einstein responded without hesitation.
“Fine, but what else should I read to him after that?” the mother asked.
“More fairy tales,” Einstein stated.
“And after that?”
“Even more fairy tales,” replied the great scientist, and he waved his pipe like a wizard pronouncing a happy end to a long adventure.
