Corneel Meets the Kids
Move over Eloise, Corneel is now at The Plaza. While Eloise is often naughty, Corneel is mostly nice. Eloise’s claim to fame is her knack for getting into trouble; Corneel is the perfect gentlemen. (Well, not quite a gentleman, but he’s definitely gentle). Eloise may come from a well-heeled family, but Corneel comes from a family that heels well. And the biggest difference, Eloise lives in the imaginations of children, but Corneel is a real live children’s book character. (read the story...)

The “Talkie” of the Town
Testing…one…two…three. Kids can experiment with the magic of the greatest symphony in their lives — their own voices — at The Museum of Sound Recording at RKO Keith’s (MOSR) in Richmond Hill. The Museum launches its historic collection of sound technology with a grand opening on June 7. (read the story...)

Storyteller's Journeys Become Kids' Oasis for Imagination
The word storytelling is frequently preceded by the words "the art of", and sometimes, unfortunately, even by "the lost art of". Storytelling is as much an art as painting, although these days it often feels as removed from us as the parasol-and-cravat Sunday promenade along Fifth Avenue. (read the story...)

A Taste of Victorian Times, in Flushing

Sleeping Giants and Nature Canoes:Outdoors in New Haven
A cornucopia of culture New Haven is famous for many things, we learned during our three-day visit there.

A Queens Summer Residence for the Broadway-Bound
With the beginning of summer just around the corner, the decision on where to send children for summer camp can often be daunting. Luckily, there is a camp for every interest: sports, arts and crafts, and music are just a few. For those who aspire to the performing arts, the stage at the Professional Performing Arts Center of Queensborough Community College (QCC) in Bayside is already set for tapping, singing and much more. (read the story...)

Marvelous Marco-mania!

Record sales expected for new Harry Potter bookWhy We’re So Wild About Harry
Children and adults across the country are desperate for their next fix. But don’t worry, this craving isn’t for anything illicit. It’s for Harry Potter. And the good news is, the wait is finally over. (read the story...)

Gone Up In Smoke
The bars on the zoos’ monkey cages are rattling, city unions are on the defensive as the threat of larger layoff cuts loom, and child advocacy groups are bracing themselves for the deep wounds that a $3.4 billion budget gap will impose on core services for the city’s children. Reality is blinding sometimes. (read the story...)

Somewhere between the surreal and the sophisticated:
Shrunken heads, waxen gangsters, a carousel, street magicians, ice cream, and lots of reptiles. Just the right ingredients for a perfect vacation — and all available in St. Augustine, Florida. (read the story...)

Gliding to Glory: Ice Skating
On a recent Tuesday evening, the ice rink at Riverbank State Park is swarming with young figure skaters dressed in matching light blue warm-up suits. (read the story...)

True Stripes
A good zoo exhibit isn't just improvised by luring lions and tigers through a gate with White Castle hamburgers and turning the key behind them. What makes a zoological exhibit dramatic and relevant is the recreation of the creature's natural habitat — which is exactly what the Wildlife Conservation Society is doing at the Bronx Zoo with its new attraction, Tiger Mountain. (read the story...)

Senorita Cinderella
In a small way, seeing the new bilingual play Cenicienta/Cinderella will prepare kids for going to the opera. English-speaking children are probably not used to hearing another language at a play, and seeing (and hearing) a familiar tale in another language may open them up to listening to, or even learning, another language. (read the story...)

Northern Exposure: Family Activities at Wave Hill
Non-New Yorkers may not believe that large grasslands of culture lie within the confines of the concrete Bronx.

Just the (Arty) Facts
When my husband and I first started visiting The Brooklyn Museum, 17 years ago, the place often resembled a tomb, eerily quiet and devoid of life. Over the past years, it has become vibrant, with a new wing (part of the original plan for the museum) and a new grand entrance, still not complete. (read the story...)

On the Wings of Imagination
On page 11 of “The Bird of Imagining”, there's a marvelously expressive pastel drawing by a kindergarten student, identified only as Klay, from the Children's Workshop School. (read the story...)

The Land of Enchantment — Family-Style
The art, the culture, the fine dining, the music of Santa Fe. It's without a doubt one of the great cultural destinations in the United States, but is it a place you can take your children and still enjoy the finer elements of life? The answer is an unequivocal yes. (read the story...)

The Broadway Kids: A Stage of Their Own
Making it on Broadway is tough enough, but surviving there is equally hard — especially for kids, who have a selfish tendency to grow (and whose voices sometimes change) during the run of a show. (read the story...)

It’s a Strike!New recreational facility entertains New Hyde Park families
Let’s say you’re planning a family outing and hubby wants to go bowling but the idea doesn’t fly with the progeny — who’d rather do something different, say, tool around on a fast track in a go-kart.

Words on War — For KidsDad’s Activity Book Offers Children a New View on WWII
Richard Panchyk's book, World War II for Kids (Chicago Review Press, $14.95), has an excellent glossary, from the unfamiliar British slang term "ack-ack" to the more homey "victory garden", words that reflect what the author calls the "scope and breath" of the 20th century's principal conflict.
