A blog for kids (and their parents) who love books, words, and dreaming big...
I'm so glad you stopped by! Welcome.

The arts

"The arts are not a way to make a living.
They are a very human way of making life more bearable.
Practicing an art,
no matter how well or badly,
is a way to make your soul grow,
for heaven's sake.
Sing in the shower.
Dance to the radio.
Tell stories.
Write a poem to a friend,
even a lousy poem.
Do it as well as you possibly can.
You will get an enormous reward.
You will have created something."

by Kurt Vonnegut
in A Man Without a Country, 2007
