EVENT: Evening Safari at the Potawatomi Zoo (Aug 19 @ 5:30 p.m.)

This bird claims it can move faster than an Indy 500 race car. Find out whether this bird can do just that and more with children's book author Gabrielle Balkan at the Potawatomi Zoo. 

Participants will also learn about animals and their habitats, meet an animal ambassador, make an animal enrichment item, and get to know more about animal skeletons through BOOK OF BONES.

Book of Bones Trailer

The delightful and talented Meagan Bennett designs every children's book at Phaidon. In addition to keeping an eye out for interesting talent (like Sam Brewster), Meagan helps figure out how a book will come together (such as having a question on one page and an answer when you turn the page), what colors to use (like yellow, instead of say, green for the cover) , what special features to add (such as textured pages).

Meagan ALSO makes book trailers about the finished book so we can engage all of our senses when we learn about bones! Check out some of her handwork here! Isn't she great?

jestem szczęśliwy

According to the online translator I used, the way I should say "I am happy" in Polish is "jestem szczęśliwy" ... and I am! SO happy, that BOOK OF BONES will soon pub with the Polish publisher Kocur Bury. According to the same online translator, "Kocur Bury is an independent publishing house created by friends whose passion is the book, especially the children." 
I love them already! Don't you?
