Los Angeles Public Library
Good day young Pomonans! I very much missed you all yesterday. Grandma Sue said you were all wonderful. (I already knew that.) :) We had a GREAT time at the workshop yesterday at the Los Angeles Public Library. If you can't be with children then being with people who love to work with children is the next best thing. You are guaranteed to have a great time!
These pictures were taken outside of the library. Isn't it a beautiful building? The room our workshop was in was inside this older part and the woodwork and character of the place was wonderful. I felt like I had gone back in time.
We learned many things like new music and finger plays. We shared our favorite children's book. My favorite one right at the moment is "Book, book, book" by
Deborah Bruss. I listened to other wonderful books and had a great time with other people who love children.
I went into Los Angeles on the Metrolink train. I then took the red line two stops and got out and walked two blocks to the library. It was really easy. On the way home it was overwhelming how many people were walking on the streets. It was a "sea of humanity." That just means there were thousands of people walking around! I especially enjoyed a street musician who was blowing on his saxophone with great enthusiasm! I'm telling you, if you ever feel like you're all alone in the world, go to downtown L.A. during rush hour. We all looked like tiny ants rushing to wherever it is we were going.
It was a fabulous opportunity to go but I'm very, very glad to be back at the Pomona Public Library. We rock!
Joke of the day: Why did Mars and Earth collide on their trip around the sun?
Answer: They didn't planet very well. :)
