Our Summer Reading Program show this year featuring yours truly, Super Hero Squirrely Shirley, was full of giggles and laughs. This summer season was kinda short as far as I am concerned – we need to take this one on the road to audiences in recreational areas all around the country. We need to keep spreading the word.

Although I had to share the limelight, I really had a good time doing this show with Mz Riparian and Pete the Pack Rat. Those two really helped keep me on my toes – I mean paws!

I am proud to say we now have a bunch of Junior Riparian Super Heroes in Arizona who were inspired by the show to help make a difference for frogs and other critters living in riparian zones.

Here is the Junior Riparian Super Hero Pledge

· I promise to be aware of how important the wetlands are for the small critters that live there.

· I promise to leave nature as I find it. (I will not take the rocks, plants or animals from their home in nature.

· I promise to remove my trash when camping or enjoying a family picnic.

· I promise to respect the areas called riparian zones so our waterways in Arizona will remain safe, clean and beautiful.

Your Good Friend Forever,

Squirrely Shirley
