When Sherrie & I found this mural at a Community Center in Winnipeg, I knew there would be a second Kids’ Month.

What I love about this mural is that kids helped to paint it.

This year Kids’ Month will be more inclusive than just street art.

There will be poetry in combo with street art & original artwork by fellow bloggers. I’ve got some educational posts planned, in conjunction with street art.

Today I bought a picture book for Michele Eastman’s “Picture Book Pass It On” drive.

I’ll be sending it through ground mail. It will be a small investment, that I believe will do a big good.
