  • If you give a kid a book she'll want to learn and then she'll develop opinions. If she develops opinions she'll want to become a public servant. If she becomes a public servant she'll want to be POTUS. Get this kid a book!

  • We Don't Have a Library!

    Mrs. Slota is asking for $340.12:
    My students need a selection of books to borrow, read to self, and not want to put down. My students need an ownership of their reading and choices in making their reading better.
    Newton Bateman Elementary School
  • I'm a newly retired teacher with a library. Let me know what grade you teach and I may have some books for you

  • Budlong Woods neighbor Chicago girl for life

    You are a great person Jeannie. I do think however that your message probably didn't go directly to the teacher. If you haven't already, you should click on the link to DonorsChoose where it appears to be posted.

    The Ultimate Guide to 2016 Movies in the Parks
    There's much to love about the Chicago Park District's Movies in the Park program: They're (mostly) kid friendly, free for your viewing pleasure, and spread throughout the city all summer.

    There are some really great movies that were shown this summer, of the ones I know -- American classics such as The Wizard of Oz. I'm glad Wall-E was shown, and Inside Out seemed very good to me. It's interesting (briefly) to adopt a moralistic perspective on these films, and how things have changed (or not) since Hollywood's golden age (under the old Hayes Codes). Cool Hand Luke is a martyr-the-individualist film, with one notable salacious scene and some vivid physical torture. The Sting of course glorifies con men (even if it's in the course of taking down another criminal). Some Like It Hot, one of my personal all time favorites, is about as perverse as a popular entertainment could be when it was released in 1959, and though played for laughs the sexual hijinks, impostures and reversals remain the heart of the film. The public voted for The Dark Knight -- so be it. But maybe in this case curation would help introduce something onscreen less familiar but more heartening for our citizenry.

  • @Jazzmandel: If you are into classic movies, be sure to catch the Coen Bros :Hail, Caesar". Hilarious parody of the studios set in 1950. Probably not appearing in movies in the parks for quite a few years, though.
