Welcome to the premiere of Tungsten: bulletproof hacks for the moth-eaten.

I’m at my most grandmotherly today because I want in our first visit to introduce you to the inspiration for this new show. My grandson Lawson lives in Ontario while I live in BC. In between, there’s this invisible but vigorous cord that binds us together. Lawson and I always feel a little more bulletproof when we read together, because kids have natural tungsten. Here in Smithers, I babysit a couple of guys I consider my crushes, and we're going to do an activity together, too. Lots of kids on the first episode and that makes me feel better, because for one thing, kids love mischief.

Let’s go get into some mischief together...


Today's book is Pugtato Finds a Thing, by Sophie Corrigan; you can also get the activity material (for free!) by Googling Pugtato Finds a Thing Activity Kit. Hooray!
