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 10:00–10:45. You can see my book at www.ErinBoe.com.
“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.”
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.
At this free neighborhood event, local illustrator Erin Boe debuts The Tryceratops before leading a creative dinosaur-themed art project for children of all ages. She will also sign books for readers.
