Mom's Night Out - Oct. 12

Hi Everyone,

Just want to remind you all that Mom's Night is starting up again on the 2nd Tuesdays of each month. We will be meeting at Heritage Church at 7:00. Feel free to come later than that, we are there for a couple of hours so you are welcome to walk in later.

Our discussion topic this month is "Fun Picture Books". Please bring in one or two of your family's favorites. They could be holiday books, or just a favorite story that get read over and over. Picture books apeal to a wide range of children, even older children enjoy them and can benefit from the short story plots when studying literary elements such as plot, character, theme, setting etc. We will look at these books, discuss for a while and then you'll be free to chat as you like!!!

Looking forward to seeing you all,
