Here it is: Friday before a three-day weekend, weather’s not too bad; what are you doing sitting in front of the computer reading this?!
I like to look at the nominees for the Academy Award for Best Short Animation, and try to see as many as possible. This year, I’ve only seen one so far: The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, by children’s author and illustrator William Joyce, and Brandon Oldenberg. Click HERE to watch it. It’s funny, sad, and so beautifully done. I should say that I hope it wins, but I have yet to see the other contenders, so I’m no judge. Look for yourself and let us know what you think!
BTW, there is something going on here every day of next week, so if your little angels are driving you batty, come on over between 10:30 and noon every day except Thursday. Tuesday there is a Treasure Hunt; Wednesday – Watercolor painting; Thursday – Mad Science will be making “Machines” in the afternoon (spaces are still available – sign up NOW!); Friday is TGIF (Thank Goodness It’s Funny) with the Junior Friends and others reading their favorite jokes or funny stories. Registration is only needed for the Mad Science program. We also have museum passes if you want to take a day trip, like to Worcestor (Higgins Armory) or Mystic (Mystic Aquarium) or Providence (Providence Children’s Museum, RISD Art Museum, or Roger Williams Park Zoo) or Boston (Museum of Fine Arts, or Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum). Or try a State Park with our free parking pass. Remember, we’re closed on Monday, but I’ll still be bloggin’!
