I had the amazing opportunity to visit the Brooklyn Museum's exhibit for Judith Scott yesterday. Prior to December 6, I had no idea who she was or what she did. However on my journey to a story time for my children at the Brooklyn Museum I was able to walk through this exquisite exhibit for Ms. Scott.…Continue

Last night, my family and I took a trip out to the Brooklyn Museum for First Saturdays where admission is free and patrons are exposed to “engaging free art and entertainment” as the Museum mentions on their fliers. Each month they provide a story time…Continue

With the holiday season approaching it’s time to start shopping for the little ones. However, before you rush out to grab the last Elsa doll off the shelf, here are some things to consider.
There are many guidelines out there about choosing the “right toy”. It should be safe and durable, open ended and challenging, multipurpose and ageless. The reason these guidelines are so important is because simple toys that can be used creatively in multiple ways help increase a child’s focus…Continue
