Weekend Reading Vol. 11: Forest Kindergartens, Dwayne Johnson & Anne with an E

by Nadine on May 28, 2017

Celine Dion with Anne Shirley’s sleeves.* Two national treasures in one.

It’s been a while since I posted a reading roundup. Got a minute? Here’s how to spend your kid’s nap time:

Running Free in Germany’s Outdoor Preschools. I’m an indoor cat. And I’m not 5. “Forest kindergarten” is not for me. But I would send my kids to one. (The New York Times)

Dwayne Johnson For President! You do not have to be a fan of The Rock to adore this article. Caity Weaver is a fantastic writer. And, yeah, she might convince you to vote for Johnson. Or at least consider him your new best friend. (GQ)

Mo Willems’s Funny Failures. We all love Mo — and his pigeon — at our house. Related: There’s a Knuffle Bunny shoutout in the final season of How I Met Your Mother. Something only a parent would notice. (The New Yorker)

Why the 1980s Anne of Green Gables Is Such a Hard Act to Follow. The title says it all. (Vanity Fair)

Free tampons in school bathrooms? A 14-year-old girl made it happen. A modern-day hero. (Seattle Times)

The Oral History of Celine Dion’s ‘My Heart Will Go On’: Controversies, Doubts & ‘Belly Pains’ In the Studio. Guys, it’s been TWENTY YEARS. We are all so old. Also, Celine is the best. She recorded the vocals for movie-version of the song IN ONE TAKE — WITH CRAMPS. Even her PMS is way better than everyone else’s. (Billboard)

Okay, your turn. Read anything good (online) lately?
