We visited the Medieval Times’ castle yesterday in Lyndhurst, New Jersey and had the best time!
Medieval Times’ has steered away from it’s 34-year tradition of casting a king as the show’s lead role and they have now featured a Queen to headline and her name is, Queen Dona Maria Isabella.
Victoria is a young girl who is full of knowledge and has an incredible love for animals.
This month she is telling us all about her Polish Chickens.
Polish Chickens originate from Italy … seems silly hence the name. But, they are really amazing and Victoria will tell us why.
Here is a fun riddle for you…
A Rooster lays an egg on a pointy roof. Which way will it land?
(The answer is at the end of this post)
A Duck that walks like a Penguin. Really?
Yes, and I am not kidding. I saw it with my own eyes and you can too.
Victoria Bonavita tells us all about one of her amazing Pets. His name is Cato and he is an Indian Runner Duck.
“Once in a Blue Moon”, just means it is uncommon. This Friday when you look up in the sky you will see a full moon. But will it appear blue?
It’s President’s Day and what better way to celebrate then to read a book written by a Long Island children’s author about one of our founding fathers.
Selene Castrovilla has a passion for history and loves George Washington. This book is a great read for children, teens and adults.
“Any child can use the book Revolutionary Friends as a resource in writing an essay. The story is fact and would be a great reliable resource to assist in their writing.”- Selene Castrovilla
“In the story Revolutionary Friends I talk about the relationship between George Washington and Marquis de Lafayette during the Revolutionary War. Lafayette was from France and when he as 2 years old his father died fighting the war in Germany. Lafayette came from a family of money and when he was 19 years old he decided to move with a cause to America; he wanted to be glorious. Even though the King of France said no, Lafayette built a boat and got a crew and sailed for America to help them during the Revolutionary War. When he arrived to America he stopped in Philadelphia ( where they did not want him at first). Lafayette met with Washington right when the British were about to attack and he instantly thought of him as a son. Washington was not very kind to people and did not form relationships very quickly with people. The only other person he liked as much as Lafayette was Benedict Arnold ( which we know from the history books ends up becoming a traitor). The book continues with a heartwarming story of Washington and Lafayette’s relationship during a significant part of U.S. History the Revolutionary War.”
