Thank You

Dear KulturMama, the Library in Thalwil, and all the kids & parents:

We had such a wonderful time at English Storytime. The library was so sweet to welcome us and to give Tootsie treats. Danke!

We're amazed Tootsie fell asleep during Jeff Crosby's Wiener Wolf--it's her favorite book of all time!--but it was so relaxing being surrounded by amazing kidlets. A special thanks, too, to Grandpa for his Tootsie limericks. Read one, here.

An extra special thank you to KulturMama for all her work. Please sign up for her newsletter--and könig beatty projects--right, here. Marisa König Beatty (aka KulturMama) covers wonderful events in Switzerland, and there's lots of great information. (Swiss Cats -- take a look!)

Tootsie and Renée

English Storytime with KulturMama!

We are reading at English Storytime with Kulturmama in Thalwil, Switzerland! It's a short program for kidlets. We're going to sing "Itsy bitsy spider" with changed lyrics... "itsy bitsy dachshund." And we might sing "the wheels on the bus go round and round" set to dachshund lyrics... "my dachshund paws go round and round." We'll see.

We're going to read Grandpa's limericks, which he wrote for me. We're going to read Jeff Crosby's Wiener Wolf, my favorite book of all time. And we'll read How Dogs Really Work! by Alan Snow. It's a good manual.

Wish us luck!

P.s. Mom just spent forty-five minutes looking for her special Swiss train day pass. (She had put it in a special place.)

Mom Returns Home

Tootsie: "But, where were you?"
Mom: "I was a visiting writer at Lebanon Valley College. It was wonderful!"

"And, Tootsie. I brought you an English-language magazine from America."

International Women's Day

We're sending love to women all around the world. From the hills to the valleys, women make the world go round. And particularly today, we are thinking of all the women in the United States who will suffer because of the policies of the GOP -- their roll-back of environmental protections, for starters, will have profound effects on health and the great North American land.

It's 2017, and we still have to say it: women's rights are human rights.
