GOODNIGHT ARK‘s BIRTHDAY BASH!!!!
I was thrilled when Laura asked me to document GOODNIGHT ARK’s birthday bash. That’s right, Saturday, September 6th was GOODNIGHT ARK’s coming out party. Many people gathered at our local Barnes & Noble to celebrate.
There was a reading,
I couldn’t capture all of the magic, but hopefully you get the idea.
During the fun, I took a little “What’s Your Favorite Animal?” survey. Elephant was the winner, followed by Tiger in close second. Here’s a clip of one boy’s response.
After the reading, and crafts, and signing, and surveys, we gobbled up the treats below to continue the celebration!!!
I’m certain everyone slept well (not like the animals in GOODNIGHT ARK) after such a wonderful day. Thanks Laura, for letting me share in the celebration.
Laura’s poems, stories, articles and crafts have appeared in many publications including Highlights for Children, Cricket, Ladybug, Spider, Focus on the Family’s Clubhouse and Clubhouse Jr., FamilyFun, and Pack-O-Fun.
