Greetings from the Target Children’s Book Fest

Posted in Blog on Sep 11, 2010

A sunny day made even brighter with the squeals and laughter of a thousand kids – that’s the scene from backstage at Target’s Children’s Book Festival. Target invited Mom Culture to live blog from the event, and since books are one of the great joys of life, I was all in!

To my left is the iconic puppet Lambchop (I won’t mention what was on my dinner plate last week), currently on- stage is the upbeat Choo Choo Soul from Disney (aka, Genevieve and DC) and next up is Tom Lichtenheld, the illustrator who brought us hits like Duck Rabbit. It’s a day full of really cool music, readings and entertainment that you and your kids will love!

There’s time to join the fun – the festival runs until about 5pm today at Hyland Park Reserve. It’s free! And if you want to clean out a bookshelf or two before you come here, bring your gently used books and they’ll be donated to Twin Cities area schools. Here’s a link if you want a few more details and directions.

More to come after I talk to a couple of these talented people who keep our kids entertained and learning to love books….
