red a crayons story Michael Hall’s Red:  A Crayon’s Story is a 2015 picture book that explores stereotyping and identity. It has gotten great reviews (as collected in Children’s Literature Comprehensive Database: http://www.clcd.com/ – /singlebook/LeROLNJNJQhKfmKj; if accessing from off campus, use your regular BGSU online credentials to see the reviews).








And Tango Makes Three, another picture book (it is perennially on the banned book list) tells the story of two male penguins who raise a young penguin. Explore at the illustrations to see a variety of family units.

Spacing out!

On this dayOn this day, in 1931, the 1st rocket-powered aircraft design was patented by Robert Goddard.  With his work, many space crafts and work in space would not have happened.  His work was so well respected in early astronautics that after his death there was a formal dedication to him for his work with NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center on March 16, 1961, 35 years to the day after the professor launched the first liquid-fueled rocket from his Aunt Effie’s farm.  Come in to the CRC today and check out some of our books on space and NASA.  They are out of this world! #rocket-poweredaircraft #it’s_science #RobertGoddard #NASA #BGSU #FalconsFlyTogether #bgsucrc Written by CRC Student, Rachel #crcstudents

You can use them in classrooms, meetings, workshops, camps and anywhere a group of people gather. The soft thumballs help get people talking. They develop Social, Cognitive, Motor and Communication skills and are just plain FUN!
