    William Rustrum commented on Tiffany Michelle Brown's blog entry: I, too, start with CDs.

But I can't do this until they know t...  more

    Glenna Rutan Lynn, are you still selling the wonderful star finger puppets?   I couldn't find in the store, but maybe was looking in the wrong place.  I wanted to order some more for my December program.  Thanks!
