Join us for book discussion, August 9, 2022 at 10:30 a.m. when we discuss A Tap On the Window by Linwood Barclay
When Cal Weaver stops at a red light on a rainy night while driving home, he ignores the bedraggled-looking teenage girl trying to hitch a ride – even when she starts tapping on his window. But when he realises she’s one of his son’s classmates, he knows he can’t really leave her, alone, on the street.
But nothing prepares him for the consequences of trying to help her out. The next morning he’s gone from Good Samaritan to Murder Suspect, and with one girl dead and another missing, he’s suddenly at the centre of a deadly puzzle that reaches right to the heart of the town – from its bullying police force to its strangely furtive mayor – and finally to one family’s shocking secret.

Unsure of how to talk to your kids about what’s going on with the COVID19 pandemic? If you’re looking for some answers, PBS for Parents is ready to help.
This site is a great resource for tips on how to talk to your kids on an age appropriate level about the current situation, while offering reassurance and guidance on how they can do their part to keep themselves and their family safe. Involving children on a level they can understand and engage in, is an important step in managing stress.
In addition, the site offers timely advice on how to manage and make the most of your child’s screen time, how to support children on the autism spectrum, and tips for parents who are new to home schooling. Self care for parents, an important topic, is also highlighted.
Of course, the kids will enjoy the links to their favorite PBS shows, downloadable activity sheets and games. There are art, science, and math activities to explore. You can even filter content by ages two to eight years old.
As the beloved Mister Rogers said, “Look for the helpers.” Thanks PBS.
