Two Words:   STAN LEE

Yes!  That’s right fearless fans, Stan Lee will be at Denver Comic Con May 31st – June 2, 2013.  If you didn’t get a chance to go to the inaugural DCC last year, definitely make an effort to go this year.   

There are great booths to visit, artists to chat with, and panels to sit in on to learn all the ins and outs of your favorite graphic novels and comics.  And of course you don’t want to miss the cosplay, cuz it’s so much fun!  (Remember!  If your costume has a ‘gun’ – you need to have an orange tip attached…just sayin’.)

Other featured guests for the three day event include:  George Takei, Greg Guler, Felicia Day, George Perez, Wil Wheaton, Jeffrey Brown . . . Tickets for Teens range from $12 for a one day Friday pass to $30 for a three day pass. 

The Stan Lee Silver and Gold Add On packages will be available later at a mysterious price to be determined later.  So get your tickets now, and then check the website compulsively until they post the Stan Lee info! 

If you go, and you’re in costume, make sure you post a pix on our Facebook page!  Hope to see you!

"Even if you get nothing else accomplished today, you have done something wonderful for your baby by being here!"

This is how I often start Baby Time. It's 20 minutes of early literacy skills cleverly disguised as play for the 0-2 year-old crowd. Songs, rhymes, stories, scarves and bells are just part of the fun. We also learn how to share, put our toys away and communicate. Parents and caregivers not only bond with their children but get to share experiences and talk to other grown-ups!

Baby Time is my favorite time of day. Visit your Jeffco library for Baby Time and make it your favorite time as well! We hope to see you soon!

On July 9th and July 18th, Arvada kids had a snortin' good time with Mudslinger and Digger at the Top Hogs show.

Called "the einsteins of porcine," Mudslinger and Digger wowed the crowd with a variety of tricks. The pigs played sports, made music, rode a skateboard and even put their toys away when they were finished playing with them!

Did you see Mudslinger and Digger at the Top Hogs show this summer? Tell us all about it!
