M is for Minnesota

M is for Minnesota is a good picture book to share with your children or grandchildren regardless of age.  There is a photograph for each letter and it shows the diversity of things or places that make Minnesota the state that it is. B is for Boundary Waters, F is for farming, H is for hockey, and M is for Minneapolis.  There are many alphabet books about Minnesota, but this one is my favorite because of the photos and the wide range of ages that would enjoy it.

Museum Day Live

Museum Day Live is next Saturday, September 24.  Sponsored by the Smithsonian, you can get two free admission tickets to a participating museum.  A few years ago, my Dad and brother took advantage of the promotion to go to the Mille Lacs Indian Museum in Onamia. I had not been there since I was in grade school, so it was worth going again.  This year I am looking at the options of museums to decide where I want to visit.  If you are interested in finding out which museums are participating near you, click here to go to the website.  You can then put in your state or zip code to see what your choices are.
