As a parent, you have the power to enhance your child’s imagination, communication, literacy skills, critical thinking, concentration and discipline just by enjoying reading and storytime activities with your little one.

Q. I just saw the movie, “Black Mass.” I think it was based on a book. Do you have the book?
Looking at recent bird reports from around the state, I was impressed with sightings from the Rio Grande Valley area, including a golden-winged warbler in Port Aransas, a collared plover near Mission and a northern beardless tyrannulet at Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge.
If you’d like to search for these neat birds, and many others, you’ll have a golden opportunity at the 22nd Annual Rio Grande Valley Birding Festival scheduled for Nov. 4 through Nov. 8 in Harlingen.
