What Is A Library?

A wonderful letter from E.B. White – author of Charlotte’s Web – to the children in the city of Troy about the important impact libraries and books have on reading, life, and education.

Global Cardboard Challenge

Last year, a story about a boy named Caine who had created an entire gaming arcade out of cardboard boxes in his father’s auto parts store went viral thanks to this video made by Nirvan Mullick:

This year, in honor of the anniversary of the Flash Mob that surprised Caine at his arcade, Caine, Nirvan, and many others got together to designate this Saturday, October 6th, a global day of play called The Cardboard Challenge.  To find out how you can participate, and help foster creativity in children everywhere, check out the follow-up video below, or stop by the official website at CainesArcade.com.

Caine’s story is an amazing testament to how the support of a single person can change the life of a child.

What are you up to this weekend?  Baseball and Zooey encourage you to get out there and PLAY!
