SPECIALS
In January 2018 Michael Olaf will close. The owners/creators, Jim and Susan Stephenson, who are now in their 70's will retire. Thank you for all of your support over the years. With very few exceptions (those things that are made locally, such as the slatted chair, topponcino, and a few other hard-to-find items) as each book, toy, or tool runs out it will not be reordered. Please keep this in mind for your school ordering, gift ordering, holiday ordering.
AGE 1-3 PHYSICAL SCIENCE & MATH

Scientific exploration is what a child is naturally engaged in all day long. Checking weights and distances, examining objects, experimenting with water, sand, mud. Every time a child arranges blocks in a row, or from larger to smaller, or places sliced carrots in a pattern on a plate, he is using the math brain. Children at a very early age have a natural tendency to order and count, to match like objects, to love math. To love math.
