One More Trick!: Kids Kaboom! Does It Again

with 2 comments

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.

Kids Kaboom Book Crazy!

with 3 comments

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.
