Suzanne's Around Town
Free Books for Babies

Hi! Everyone-

Two libraries are giving free board books to babies! Go to the Children's Desk at Beaverton City Library when you visit the library with your baby (up to 12 months) and receive a free board book.

Garden Home Library offers a similar program with the addition of a sippy cup and bib on the next two visits!

Friends can subscribe to this newsletter by contacting me at osgriffiths@verizon.net.

Current issue is always available at www.suzannesaroundtown.com

Happy Reading!

Suzanne

Pioneer Woman Cooks @ Powell's Books Cedar Hills at 6PM

Ree Drummond-a former LA lady turned OK ranch mom of 4 has written a cool cookbook - "The Pioneer Woman Cooks" -with great recipes for Potato-Leek Pizza, Spicy Pulled Pork, and Prune Cake with Buttermilk Icing (I've made it- YUM!!!!!). Reese Witherspoon is slated to play the Pioneer Woman in a movie based on her life. I will have to suggest Keifer Sutherland to play her cowboy husband if I get the chance.
