    Where Yap-Yap the Prairie Dog Used His Wits

    Where Yap-Yap the Prairie Dog Used His Wits

    Today's episode is another result of our trip to the zoo about a week back. My son wanted to see the prairie dogs so on our travels around the zoo, we made sure to stop there. Today, we read the story, “Where Yap-Ya the Prairie Dog Used His Wits” from the book “Mother West Wind 'Where' Stories” written by Thornton W. Burgess.

    Where Glutton the Wolverine Got His Name

    Where Glutton the Wolverine Got His Name

    Going to the zoo is always fun. One of my favorites to see is the wolverine. However, in my 36 years of life and the countless times I have been there, I have only ever seen it a handful of times. It's pretty awesome when you do see it. Makes you feel connected to nature, I mean Michigan is, after all, named “The Wolverine State.”

    Whitney and the Cotton-Gin

    Whitney and the Cotton-Gin

    One day, I would like to invent something revolutionary! I'm talking like Thomas Edison and the lightbulb, Henry Ford and the assembly line, or like in today's story, Eli Whitney and the cotton-gin. Hopefully I will someday, we will just have to wait and see. I'll just keep looking at things around me and try to see what could revolutionize the world. Today's story comes to us from the book “Historic Inventions” written by Rupert Holland.

    Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death

    Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death

    Happy July 4th! Today, we celebrate our independence here in the United States. Today, we read the speech best know for the line "Give me liberty, or give me death" given by Patrick Henry in 1775. It's always a time for family, fireworks, baseball, and cookouts. We celebrated with some beach time. Nothing is better than spending a summer day at Lake Huron. Anyway, whatever you do, have a Happy 4th of July and enjoy the festivities.

    The Fall of the Spider Man

    It's an exciting week here in North America. Today is Canada Day, in Canada, and on Saturday, it will be Independence Day here in the United States. That's a whole lot of birthdays! 153 years young for Canada and 244 years young for the USA. As a way to celebrate, we read the story “The Fall of the Spider Man” from the book Canadian Fairy Tales written by Cyrus Macmillan.

    Edison's Early Boyhood

    Edison's Early Boyhood

    Well, it's been a little while since I planned to do this, but here we are, an episode about Thomas Edison. This was supposed to be done a few weeks back when I was done with our Thor series but better late then never. Today's story is “Edison's Early Boyhood” from the book “The Boys' Life of Edison” written by William H. Meadowcroft.
