In partnership with Little Free Libraries, we are busy organizing clues and hiding gnomes for you to spot as you follow the trail. Our last LFL Scavenger Hunt was held in March 2021 in celebration of National Day of Unplugging and we had 41 cities with organized hunts and 400 clues that resulted in over 2000 people participating across North America!

 Jane Camp is a retired teacher and the founder of Reading2paws. She goes to schools and gives kids free books and stuffed animals. Students read aloud to their stuffed animal every day.

Camp says, “Books were special to me and I loved to read. When I retired, I wanted to do something for kids. I volunteered and found out that many kids had no books at home. I started my charity. Some people gave me books to give out, others purchased books for me and some donated money to help.”

Monsoon in the Southwest brings much more than just rain. It also brings a not-so-friendly amphibian out from hiding called the Colorado River Toad. While these toads are harmless to humans, their toxins are potent enough to take down even a fully grown dog.

Here at the Humane Society of Southern Arizona, we are here to help you protect your pets from any dangers they may encounter in our environment. These 15 minute training classes give you and your dog the necessary training to allow them to identify and avoid a toad; preventing a potentially deadly encounter.

 I think “Jump The Moon” by Kathy Simmers is a great book because I love horses! But that’s not the only reason. First, it’s a heartfelt story about a girl’s love for a horse. The story is based on a true story about the author’s daughter and a special horse in her life.

The next reason I enjoyed the book is because the girl never stopped thinking of the horse and she never gave up on the horse. The girl never believed what other people thought about the horse. Some thought the horse was ugly and mean, but she thought the horse was beautiful and caring.
