Optivion and I scoured the streets of New York City in search of book treasures hidden throughout Times Square and Bryant Park. I discovered Where’s My Mummy? by Carolyn Crimi (illustrated by John Manders) ready to pounce from behind a carousel. Optivion learned what happens when happy ends go bad in The Frog Prince Continued by Jon Scieszka (illustrated by Steve Johnson) and made some mad mojo.
Optivion and I Reading Rainbow-ed out in our first Kids Kaboom video. I found The Elephant Wish by Lou Berger and illustrated by Ana Juan hiding in an Autumn cornfield. Optivion, when the weasel wasn’t taunting him, read Just In Case: A Trickster Tale and Spanish Alphabet by Yuyi Morales. Both books are surreally and beautifully illustrated stories of magic.
