If “inspecting,” all that candy hasn’t given you a toothache, this sweet idea just might put you over the edge!
First, if you didn’t make it here yesterday, you’ll want to check out my post on the amazing Karshner museum, as well as the great, big roller rink list. I’ve got every one in the area, as well as my tips for when to go, naturally.

Both the Pierce County Library Systems and the Puyallup Public Library offer a unique way for younger children to practice their reading skills. If you find yourself gritting your teeth as you listen to your little one struggle, take a day off and let her read to an assistance dog. Granted, the dog isn’t really “listening,” to the story, but he will rest patiently right at your child’s feet without ever once correcting her and glancing at his watch. It’s great practice for the dogs and great practice for your kids, too!
Read with a dog sessions-PCL are held on Wednesday evenings at the Summit Pierce County library between 4-5 PM and at the Graham Pierce County library on Tuesday evenings between 6:30-7:45
At the Puyallup library, your kids can read with therapy dog, Scarlet (seriously, Look at that face)! on Friday, November 19th between 3:30-4:30 and during the same time on Friday, December 10th.
Speaking of the library, there are story times at almost every brank of the Pierce County Library today, and also several at Tacoma branches. The Puyallup Public Library has a special bilingual storytime this evening, which is a great introduction to another language.
On the other hand, I do see sunshine, so I think you’ll want to spend at least a little bit of time outside. I’m working on a post about some of my very favorite playgrounds right now. Check back later for that.
I’m also doing some small giveaways this week. Since they’re not huge, I’m just going to do them on the Facebook page. Make sure you’ve liked SFM to be ready.
