The Corner Library

    When I started taking my children to our local library I was tickled that they had the same wide eyed amazement that I remember having at being able to take home any book they desired. Reading opens up so much to children! Libraries are a window seat to the world,where we can travel, learn and explore until our heart's content. As a family it's important to read individually, as well as a group. Reading should be interactive. It should make you want to discuss your thoughts and ideas, as well as write about them. In this section you will find articles, book reviews, author interviews, excerpts and writing features.   ~Brenda Hyde, Editor

Harvesting and Using Summer Squash

Summer squash is one of my favorite vegetables. I love the yellow summer squash in particular. They should be harvested while still tender, when they have a "glossy" appearance and are still small. You will most likely need to harvest daily once they start to appear.
