Hi Avery -  thanks for joining the grandparenting group - tell me about yourself - what is your interest in grandparenting?  I am writing a series of books for children and grandparents.  One of  my interests is introducing children to the natural environment.  Here is the link to my websier if you would like to check it out.  www.grammybookseries.com

Thanks,

Laura

Thanks Avery!
I'm very excited to learn about this group and resource. I really look forward to learning from all the talented people here and hope to be able to share ideas for desert specific science. The resources are limited for Early Childhood and am happy to help!
