Family Fun Puppeteer Donates Show to FamilyWorks

Over 100 people came to enjoy the great puppet show put on by Drew Derby, King County librarian this past Saturday. “It was really fun to have kids and adults come together and laugh,” says Kate, FamilyWorks volunteer coordinator, who put the whole event together. Most of the children who came to watch the show were between the ages of 2 and 11, and they happily participated in Drew’s rendition of “There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly.” He also performed folk stories that captured the kids’ (and adults’!) attention.

If you saw the show and are interested in contacting Drew Derby for your own event, contact Kate at (206) 694-6725 or katebg@familyworksseattle.org

Kids and Chores – What Do You Think?

So this King 5 News blogger seems to be saying something a little different from what the commenters think. What chores do you hope your children will do, and how do you encourage them to perform the chores? For those of you in our parenting classes, what do you think the book author, or our facilitator, would say about the blogger’s ideas? About the comments?
