If you are looking for action-packed adventures, the circus comes to Boston this weekend in the form of the Boston Pops Cirque de la Symphonie -- a show full of musical and physical acrobatics. And its a great weekend for children's literature. On Saturday, take your pick of four special author events celebrating Children's Book Week at independent book stores in Brookline, Cambridge, Dedham, and Medford. Mother and Father Goose both share their favorite stories at the Puppet Showplace Theater this weekend, and the children's classics The Secret Garden and The Jungle Book both come to the stage for theatrical adaptations this weekend. If you want to celebrate our beautiful, fragile planet, head on down to Earth Fest at the Hatch Shell or check out Endangered Species Day at Franklin Park Zoo or Stone Zoo. And we wouldn't be Mommy Poppins Boston if we missed this opportunity to say "Let's Go Fly a Kite" at the Franklin Park Kite and Bike Festival.
Also on Mommy Poppins this week:
- Farmer's Market Season is upon us--see how to make the most of the markets' educational possibilities.
- Tara helps navigate all the amazing possibilities offered by the Highland Street Foundation's Free Fun Fridays.
- Anna shares her recipe for Lemon Curd as part of our Wee Work series. To get Wee Work in your inbox, click here.
As always, have a great weekend! With a calendar full of events, I'm sure you'll find something fun to do.
