Read with Chimey: Old Rock (is not boring) read aloud

Old Rock has been sitting in the same spot in the pine forest for as long as anyone can remember. Spotted Beetle, Tall Pine, and Hummingbird think just sitting there must be boring, but they are in for a wonderful surprise.

This week's #BookTitleTuesday, "Old Rock (is not boring)"
by Deb Pilutti, proves that great storytellers come in all shapes, sizes, and ages, and Old Rock’s stories are sure to inspire questions that lead to wonderful conversations about the past and the natural world. Check out this new addition to the #BooksfromBirth and Dolly Parton's Imagination Library book list!

Talking to Children about Terrorism | National September 11 Memorial & Museum

As the 20th Anniversary of 9/11 approaches, many commemorations will be shared. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

Even if your child is too young to remember (or wasn't even born in) September of 2001, chances are good that they will see/hear about it in the next few days.

Click below for a quick guide on how to answer when your child has questions about #September11th.

Talking to Children about Terrorism | National September 11 Memorial & Museum In accordance with the Key to NYC mandate, the Museum requires all visitors age 12 and older to be vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to enter.

Kids book read aloud:Red House, Tree House, Little Bitty Brown Mouse Book by Jane Godwin

At Porter-Leath, we believe that any time you can read with your little one is time well spent! Even 15 minutes a day can help boost your child's vocabulary and language skills.
.
This week's, #BookTitleTuesday is Dolly Parton's Imagination Library selection, "Red House, Tree House, Little Bitty Brown Mouse" by Jane Godwin and illustrated by Blanca Gomez.

The story follows a little mouse which makes her way around the world, and invites preschoolers along as she sets out: Red house / Blue house / Green house / Tree house! / See the tiny mouse in her little brown house? 🐭 🏚

Seamless, simple, and inspiring, the rhyming story abounds in concepts for the very young, with a particular focus on colors, and a delightful search-and-find element on every spread--the intrepid mouse herself!

Ask your child what colors they have seen today and read along with the link below!

Many times when children enter foster care, they arrive with very few material goods. Porter-Leath’s Connections program not only provides training for foster parents but also ensures they are able to meet the physical needs of children - like shoes, bedding or backpacks. With a monthly gift of $75, you can help us meet foster children’s emergency needs.

We asked some of our Foster Parents, “Why did you become a Foster Parent and what does the support mean to you?” Here is what they said:

“I like helping people and have a passion for children. I was also motivated by a close friend to become a foster parent. Whenever I need something, Porter-Leath is always their 100%. The donations from donors are helpful and valued.” - Delorace P.

“I was getting ready to retire and decided that I would become a foster parent. I have more time to meet the needs of the children in the home. I am grateful for the support of the Porter-Leath staff. I appreciate the donors and recently received donations for the children in my home. The donations are wonderful gifts.” - Connie H.
