Weekly Photo Challenge: Zigzag

Posted on Updated on

I’m very late for the weekly photo challenge. The theme was zigzag. I saw this zigzag outside on a building while walking in downtown Tacoma. It’s technically graffiti but appears artistic. Where does the zigzag start?

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks
by Rebecca Skloot

“I’ve tried to imagine how she’d feel knowing that her cells went up in the first space missions to see what would happen to human cells in zero gravity, or that they helped with some of the most important advances in medicine: the polio vaccine, chemotherapy, cloning, gene mapping, invitro fertilization. I’m pretty sure that she – like most of us – would be shocked to hear that there are trillions more of her cells growing in laboratories now than there ever were in her body.”

walrusWhere’s Walrus?
Written & Illustrated by Stephen Savage
Published by Scholastic Press on February 1, 2011
Ages: 3-5, 32 pages
Topics/Genre: Wordless, Humorous, Animals
 

All is well at the zoo until walrus notices the open gate and decides to escape. Where’s walrus now? The zookeeper frantically searches for the escaped walrus throughout town. However, walrus is difficult to find as he hides by disguising himself. He blends into scenes and situations in town. A few disguises he becomes are a firefighter, artist, and even a dancer. Walrus wears different hats that match each disguise. Walrus can’t help but stand out when he discovers a pool and shows his diving skills. Is the chase off now that walrus is no longer in disguise?

Where’s Walrus? is a delightful and humorous book, especially for younger ages. The illustrations are simple with bold colors. The storyline is also straightforward – animal escapes, hides, and zookeeper tries to find. Younger ages can find walrus within the pages. Where’s Walrus? is sure to get many laughs. I recommend this book.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer Lovin’

Posted on Updated on

This week’s photo challenge is summer lovin’. Show the pleasures and delights of summer. For the first time this summer I’ve experienced numerous baseball games. I watched the Seattle Mariners and the Tacoma Rainers. Today, I attended a Tacoma Rainer’s game on a beautiful blue sky and warm summer day. It was a little scary at times, but we won 4-3. I had the best hot dog with all the fixings!
