On Saturday, I presented #Dreidel Day at #B&N , Yonkers, NY .
They have this gorgeous stage, complete with scenery and it’s a heaven for storytelling.
On Sunday, I had a book launch at the amazing #Books of Wonder, NYC uptown store.
The kids were terrific. They couldn’t wait to help the cat puppets light the menorah, count Hanukkah coins, dreidels & latkes, play Pin the Tail on the Cat, decorated #Dreidel Day coloring pages and munch on Hanukkah cookies & chocolate coins.
later, I dressed up like a musician character in my picture book, The Klezmer Bunch, complete with a cooking pot hat on my head and acted up my story, The Klezmer Bunch about 4 klezmer musicians who pack their musical instruments in a baby carriage, on a way to a Jewish wedding. The children were so inspired by the wymsical musical instruments in the book that they sat on the floor & drew their own creations.
Thank you Books of Wonder & B&N.
