April 30th is Zap day at Red Butte Gardens.
Trees are Terrific… and Energy Wise!
There’s no better place than Red Butte Garden to celebrate Arbor Day!
As Utah’s very own Arboretum, we can't wait to share with you
the wonderful world of trees.
Join us for a fun day of activities and
interactive Exploration Stations throughout the Garden.
All participants leave with a tree to take home!
Arbor Day is a free admission day
thanks to Salt Lake County Voters & Zoo, Arts, and Parks.
"Talking like the rain"
That's an african expression for poetry.
"How do you like to go up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue.
Oh I do think it is the pleasantest thing,
Ever a child can do!"
Available right now in the resource room
are a limited number of children's poem books
to provide as gifts for children
who otherwise would not be exposed to these gems.
I have fond memories of listening to my mother read from
'A Child's Garden of Verse"
by Robert Louis Stevenson.
And my sister and I can still recite together
all the words to "Jabborwocky" and the " Raggedy Man".
We have four copies each of "A Child's Garden of Verse", "Favorite Poems of Childhood" and two copies of " How to Eat a Poem".
