We received this fun suggestion from local illustrator, Erin Boe:

I am a children’s book illustrator located in Hopkins, MN, and Red Heart Books has just published my children’s book, The Tryceratops, a book about trying new things. I’m doing a book reading and a dinosaur art project (free) at Kiddywampus in Hopkins on Tuesday, May 19 from 10:0010:45. You can see my book at

“This book gives kids the permission they often seek from peers and adults to try new things,” said Boe. “The Tryceratops shows children that good or bad, new experiences provide the adventure we all seek in life.”

More Information:

The book, written by John Edwards, is published by Red Heart Books and follows a group of young, intrepid triceratops friends as they encounter new foods, activities, and experiences.

Besides Family Fun Twin Cities, I spend my 9 to 5 at a day job pursuing my weird passion for calendars and organizing things as a legal secretary. When I get home I spend my time with my four kids, 10, 6, 4 and 1. My amazing husband is both a full-time musician and full-time stay-at-home dad. Together we run a small radio empire — SiaNet Radio — playing, promoting and enjoying the wide variety of local music and art in the Twin Cities. I juggle all this while writing about exploring the Twin Cities with kids. I couldn’t be happier.
