Book Review: It Takes a Village

July 22 2017:

This phrase has come up for me twice in the last few days. Thought it a great time to share this book we read several months ago …

It Takes a Village

A heart-warming story based on the African proverb, “It takes a village to raise a child.” The story takes place at a traditional open-air market as we learn the power of a close-knit community.

Wonderful section in the back of the book with additional information about African markets. Great book!

Just finished reading a book with Lillian and Thomas about Ira Aldridge ….

One of the greatest Shakespearean actors of the nineteenth century.

Wow! Deeply inspired by this man. “This above all, -To thine own self be true …. ”

When I posted a few days ago asking for keys, I had no idea we’d be gifted these beauties! WOW!!! Thank you Matthew McDowell!!

If you have no longer used keys, we’ll take them. They don’t have to be fancy like these. Plain ole keys will work too!!

We are in creation mode and will be combining these with other recycled items and a bit of natures gifts. I think we’re finally ready to start making! Earth Art!! xoxo
