Welcome to the Laura Ingalls Wilder Children's Room!

Ms. Clara Webber was the first children's librarian of Pomona Public Library. A long time correspondent with Mrs. Laura Ingalls Wilder, she was instrumental in having the Children's Room named in honor of Mrs. Wilder on May 25, 1950. Today, we house the original hand written manuscript for the novel Little Town on the Prairie. Every February, we host the Laura Ingalls Wilder Sociable in honor of Mrs. Wilder's February 7th birthday.

Kellogg Park, Pomona, California

Good Wednesday, young Pomonans! I had the opportunity to go out to Kellogg Park this afternoon to tell stories and sing songs. It was great fun! I had never been to Kellogg Park before and I had a little trouble finding it. I'm glad I left early because I just got there on time.

Kellogg Park is right next door to Kellogg Elementary School. It is not a very big park as you can see, but it is beautiful. I love the trees!

As I've mentioned before, I have had a lot of dental work done. My mouth is full of fake teeth. I kid you not. Not only that, but this morning the fake teeth in the top front of my mouth fell out!! Nooooooo! I put them back in but they are loose. I went out to Kellogg Park hoping against hope that they don't fall out and fly across the room when I'm telling a story or singing a song! I decided to be honest with the kids and tell them that this might happen because my fake teeth are loose. They took it very well but stared at my mouth the whole session! When I left I think they were very disappointed not to have seen flying teeth! Sigh.

Take my story to heart, young Pomonans! TAKE CARE OF YOUR TEETH!

Joke of the day: What should children and adults alike tell all the time?
Answer: The tooth and nothing but the tooth!

How cool! I've never heard of this park either... some day I'll drive over and check it out with the kids!

Welcome, Skrip! I've seen you on other Pomona blogs. When you go to Kellogg Park make sure you have a detailed map. My map left out an entire street!
