Yesterday we took a field trip to see Pinocchio at the Landers Theatre, the kids seemed to enjoy it. It was a nice change. I didn't get pix but I was able to find a you tube video that described the show we saw. We learned that "Pinocchio" is an Italian Fairytale wrote way back in 1881, by Carlo Collodi and was translated into English in 1892. We learned that Carlo Collodi was a pseudonym for Carlo Lorenzili, which means he used the name Carlo Collodi as his "author name" when in fact his real name was Carlo Lorenzili. The use of the pseudonym was to hide the authors identity. It was fun watching all the little kids act and use their talents in so many ways.
