The Pied Piper of Hamelin from Parson’s Nose

The Pied Piper of Hamelin from Parson’s Nose

Parson’s Nose — what a great name for a theater company! Fortunately for Pasadena, Parson’s Nose is more than a great name. Its stated mission is to introduce “classic theater to family audiences,” through original one-hour adaptations of dramatic masterpieces. These staged readings (not performances) are designed to be both smart enough for grownups and [...]

Putt-putting Around South Pasadena

Putt-putting Around South Pasadena

Quiet, hidden and old-school, the Arroyo Seco Miniature Golf Course has more charm than a four-leaf clover. Tucked into the Arroyo on the edge of South Pasadena, this verdant golf complex includes a public 18-hole course, a par-3 course and the mini golf, which local kids have been frequenting since 1955. And at a mere $2 per [...]

Open House for Young Singers

Open House for Young Singers

Held as a precursor to auditions for children ages 8 to 12 in June, the open house will include a brief performance by [...]

Sing a Song in South Pas

Sing a Song in South Pas

Thank heaven for little girls… born to professional musicians! When their parents are inspired to create great children’s music, like Pat McIntyre is by his daughter Cecilia Jude, we all benefit! His inspiration led to the creation of the Saturday Morning Sing-a-long in South Pasadena. This joyful celebration of music and dance was started by Pat [...]

Planet Earth Screening at Caltech

Planet Earth Screening at Caltech

Theoretically, this is an event for children, a “Science Saturday All Age Matinee.” Caltech recommends it for ages 8 and up. If you’ve ever seen Planet Earth, or any nature documentary that doesn’t sugarcoat the food chain, you’ll know that kids expecting Milo & Otis (do kids still watch that?) are in for a shock. [...]

The Different Child

The Different Child

HBO’s current film, Temple Grandin, stars Claire Danes as the noted author, animal husbandry expert, and unlikely heroine for many families affected by autism. I found the film spellbinding on several levels. As a teacher, I love any uplifting portrayal of the educator who never gives up, one who sees potential in even the most [...]

Book of the Month

This month’s children’s book comes recommended by Maureen Palacios, owner of Once Upon a Time Bookstore in Montrose: Young Zeus, by G. Brian Karas (Scholastic Press, Feb. 2010). Greek myths are all the rage these days, what with the success of Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson and the Olympians adventure series (and new movie) for kids [...]

This coming Thursday, two-time Caldecott honoree Marla Frazee and Beach Lane Books editor Allyn Johnston will be there to discuss their recent collaboration, “Creating the Picture Book: an illustrator’s and editor’s perspective.” This is a rare opportunity, [...]
