Review: Girls Can't What?

If you are still pissed at the Children's Place "Girls don't do math" t-shirt episode, know that there are a lot of great online shops that provide cute items for our kids AND have an empowering message. One sure place is Girls Can't What? 

I picked the woman scientist tote bag for review. Turns out that I have the same bag for this blog, so I can attest that the bag is up to snuff for holding a lot of gear. I've packed this tote to the gills, including my laptop and school books. It won't let you down.

BUT...what is the real attraction for this line of products are the cute illustrations. I will say that my 10-year-old daughter wasn't into them, but there are a lot that I enjoy.

So if your daughter is looking for a great bag for her after school activities, this would be an excellent choice. But GCW also has shirts, buttons, mugs, you get it...the whole Zazzle store. I also like that there is a wide variety of illustrations, so whether your girl wants to be an astronaut or drive a truck, there's something for her. Or you...they do have adult sizes!

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
