STILLWATER Now Available on AppleTV+

  Got AppleTV+ and looking for something the kids will watch. We are really enjoying some of the new shows premiering on AppleTV+.  In addition to movies for the entire family there are some great shows for the little ones.   Recently, we had the opportunity to check out prevew episodes of a new series on AppleTV+ titled STILLWATER .  Siblings Karl, Addy, and Michael have a very special next-door neighbor: a wise panda named Stillwater. His friendship and stories give them new perspectives on the world, themselves, and each other . Our Thoughts : The animation is epic!  Two thumbs up!! Five stars!!!  The storyline is cute.  It's ideal for preschoolers and early elementary aged kiddos.  They're sure to fall in love with Stillwater, he gives off a sensei kinda' vibe and the kids liked it.  STILLWATER is one of those shows you can feel good about letting your kids watch.  Each episode teaches a practical lesson in a way kids understand.  Viewers are presented essentially with

Robobaby Book Review and Giveaway

Books make GREAT gifts and now is a great time to add to your child's library.  About the book: In this hilarious gem from triple Caldecott winner David Wiesner, it's big sister to the rescue when a new baby is delivered to a family of robots and the adults are flummoxed by technical difficulties. A new baby's arrival is a big moment in any family, even a family of robots.  Award winner David Wiesner captures the excitement and fanfare when baby Flange appears—as a crate full of components. The adults bungle the process of assembling Flange, with catastrophic results. Big sister Cathy, with her handy toolbox and advanced knowledge of robotics and IT, hasn't been allowed to help, but in the ensuing chaos she calmly clears up the technical difficulties and bonds with her new baby brother. A shout-out for girl scientists and makers, Robobaby is an eye-opening and engaging blend of the familiar and the fantastic.  About the author: David Wiesner is internationally renowned
