Super Hero Movies


Greetings Dear Reader,

Yesterday I got to see the new Avengers: Infinity War movie.  I promise not to give away the story.  That is called a spoiler and it is not a good thing.  I will say that it was a great move.  I find most super hero movies fun and thoughtful.  They make me think about how I can treat people better.

Reading

Greetings Dear Reader,

I love books. As a boy I hurried through the adventures of King Arthur, The Three Musketeers, and many others.  Reading is so important at every age.  I will talk more about this later but I want to know what you are reading.

Books are so very important to learning.  They can "take you places a star ship can never go."  I like to learn about new books that kids like.

Write to me below and tell me your favorite books (ask Mom, Dad, or your Teacher if it is OK first.)

Aramis Thorn for Kids – Opening Thoughts

Greetings Dear Reader,

Since my Grandsons are learning to read I thought I should address some of their interests.  Over the weekend my eldest Grandson asked if he could read my blog during free time at school.  I explained that it might not be appropriate for kids at school but that I would put together something once a week for kids.  This page is the beginning of fulfilling that promise.

I promise to keep the content kid friendly and clean.  I will address the thinking that I hear my Grandsons pondering.  Join with me as we walk with children on our journey and let them lead the conversation.
