Work it, Mom and DonorsChoose GIVEAWAYS!

Today at Work it, Mom! I'm complaining about Columbus Day.

Also, if you haven't noticed, but I joined the DonorsChoose Blogger Challenge. Thanks to the generosity of one reader & a good friend, one class is fully funded. BUT we still have $356 to go to fully fund Mr. B's classroom and their goal of buying books by women authors:

My students need to see 27 examples of women writers who are creating fiction that is captivating and relevant to their lives. I encourage the young women in my class to be leaders, and I am confident that they can help me make reading cool.

I'm not sure that by getting the girls to love reading that the boys will follow, but I do agree that the young women in his class need women authors to discover.

I have the following giveaways for anyone who donates at least $5 thru my donors page by the end of the month:
  • A copy of Ellen Bravo's Taking on the Big Boys
    Why Feminism is Good for Families, Business, and the Nation
  • A copy of Leslie Bennett's The Feminine Mistake
  • A copy of Gloria Feldt's War on Choice: The Right-Wing Attack on Women's Rights and How to Fight Back
  • A University of South Carolina t-shirt from Ann Bartow of Feminist Law Professors
  • And at least one more goodie to come!
Winners will be chosen using random.org and notified as soon I can after Halloween. Check back to this post to see if any new goodies come in from my networks that can be offered.

Frederick, A Virtual Puppet Performance - Read by Michael Shannon

WOW...this is my first post during the Coronavirus pandemic! I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. Thanks to the Chicago Children’s Theatre, the city’s largest professional theater devoted exclusively to children and families, for launching a new YouTube channel, CCTv: Virtual Theatre and Learning from Chicago Children’s Theatre. To kick if off we are treated to Frederick. Here's hoping this helps with your little ones. Or is a comfort to everyone of all ages. Chicago Children’s Theatre’s all-new virtual puppet performance was created while all of the artists were sheltering in place, working with resources limited to what they had in their homes or on their laptops. Frederick is directed by CCT Co-Founder and Artistic Director Jacqueline Russell. Puppets and sets were designed, built and puppeteered in a home studio by Grace Needlman and Will Bishop, CCT’s Director of Production, the creative team behind CCT’s annual series of Beatrix Potter puppet show

Book Review: Wolfpack by Abby Wambach

Less than a year ago, Abby Wambach took the stage at Barnard's commencement and gave a speech that shook many, including myself, to the core . Her speech went viral and I made the above image in order to share the highlights of her speech. Earlier this month Abby released the speech in book form. Wolfpack : How to Come Together, Unleash Our Power, and Change the Game is short (less than 100 pages) but is much more than just her speech . You get a peek into how the speech came together and why she said everything. And because the book is short and is an expanded speech, it moves quickly. I feel that it moves with the same ferocity that Abby use to move down a soccer field. And you might find yourself cheering as she takes you through the story. Abby has always been one of my favorite players. The way she ran amok on the pitch was exactly the way I felt I played sports. Never caring how you looked and giving it your all. Leaving it all on the field. When she retired from socc
