Here in northern Vermont, the signs of spring are everywhere. There are still little snowbanks in driveways and parking lots around town, yes, but there are also tiny bits of green beginning to appear on tree branches and front lawns. A few brave flowers have begun to bloom, and the daytime temperatures are regularly above freezing. Indeed, the days of kite flying and dandelions are just around the corner. In honor of the arrival of April and all the good spring things that come along with it, there is a new issue of Alphabet Glue!
Inside Volume Twelve of Alphabet Glue you’ll find pages upon pages of fantastic kid science, great book recommendations and fun hands-on projects for young readers and writers. Employ crafty folding techniques to turn a single sheet of paper into a book with more than a dozen pages, or turn simple cartoon drawings into moving pictures using a basic trick of the animator’s trade.
Create an ocean wave out of your kitchen cupboard, and read up on sea creatures and sailors. Print and cut a set of whimsical paper whales, each inscribed with a bit of inspiration for an ocean-centric story or sketch, and follow up your own writing by flipping the pages of some favorite books concerned with all things cetacean.
Gather up a few old shoeboxes and create a set of instruments for forming a family band. Employ some seriously weird science and turn an ordinary egg into something resembling a balloon. And perhaps best of all, fill up your library bag with seasonal selections that are sure to inspire you and yours to make the very best of the season ahead.
