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.

Marvelous Marco-mania!
If your kids (and you!) have fallen in love with the muppet-like Sushi Baby and Baby Alien, you're familiar with the work of up-and-coming graphic designer, Marco. (read the story...)

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...)

TV-Turnoff Week: April 21-27, 2003Tune out TV: Turn on Life!

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. Native New Yorkers as well might be surprised to hear that over 28 acres of beautiful grounds have served as an educational and learning opportunity for its visitors since 1965. (read the story...)

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. Don’t despair, though: at the recently opened Strike, an entertainment center located in New Hyde Park, you can have your cake and eat it, too. (read the story...)

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.

Eastern Heritage Comes Home
When I first heard about the Children's Galleries for Jewish Culture, a new museum in Chelsea, I though there was some mistake; Manhattan already has The Jewish Museum, the Museum of Jewish Heritage, and the Yeshiva University Museum. A Jewish Children’s Museum, in Brooklyn, is also under construction. But this thoroughly engaging hands-on museum designed for kids ages 6-12, has indeed quietly opened near Chelsea Piers, where it offers interactive exhibits and drop-in arts and crafts workshops.

A Whale of a Renovation

The Jewish Children's Museum to open in Brooklyn
Brooklyn seems to be the place reaping the richest benefits from the children's museum boom. As museums for kids become ever more expansive and sophisticated, the borough is on the brink of a pair of vanguard moves — the renovation of the Brooklyn Children's Museum into the world's first institution for young people constructed solely from renewable materials; and the brand-new Jewish Children's Museum, targeted to open in Crown Heights late this summer or early fall. (read the story...)

Small town big fun
