(read the story...)

DINOSAURS A New Look at Old Creatures

So, You Wanna Be . . .Breaking into the kids’ market — those who’ve done it share their stories
The New York region is particularly rich with talent: musicians, writers, artists, inventors, businesspeople. Many turn this acumen to the family market, writing and illustrating children’s books, performing for children, opening stores for kids, inventing new games. The mom you meet at the playground may have written your son’s favorite bedtime story or headlined a concert at the children’s museum. You could do it, too? Other parents who have succeeded share their stories . . . (read the story...)

For decades, their silvery spires defined the classic landscape of Queens. And now they’re back — and better than ever!

(read the story...)

With the fringe on top!
In the early part of the 19th century, when the elegant Boscobel mansion was built on its perch above the Hudson River, the horse-drawn carriage was the principal mode of transportation.

Horses and carriages will be on display on Boscobel’s grounds, and various events centering on this mode of transportation are scheduled from noon-4pm. (read the story...)

Fall foliage cruises on the Hudson
One of the greatest things about living in New York City is our proximity to the Hudson River. If you're looking for a fun family outing, how about a cruise up the Hudson? And since the leaves are just starting to change, the view should be spectacular. There are several companies that offer Hudson River cruises — from 90-minute tours to week-long excursions. Here are some of your choices: (read the story...)

Hello, Muddah!
Veteran comedian Jill Shely is used to working tough crowds, but today’s audience presents an unusual challenge. As she introduces the ComedySportz team for the premiere performance of “Mom’s Cracking Up!” at the Sol Goldman 14th Street YM-YWHA , she is greeted with a strident buzz of noise and activity. Infants toddle on the padded blue mat stretched in front of the stage. (read the story...)

Entering a Seussian World
Of the many marvels of the work of Dr. Seuss, the ability to exist in a kid-oriented imaginary universe is one that surely will always attract scores of readers. Who hasn’t wondered what it would really be like to live in a Seussian world, where anything can happen and earth rules do not apply? Beginning July 2, visitors to the Children’s Museum of Manhattan (CMOM) can experience a part of that world with an innovative exhibit celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Dr. Seuss enterprises. (read the story...)

A City Becomes
Anyone who thinks it’s simple getting a children’s book published would be wise to consider A City Is, which took 13 years from concept to final product, surviving even the death of the author. A City Is, illustrated by Brooklyn Heights resident Melanie Hope Greenberg, is a collection of poems by Norman Rosten. (read the story...)

A Touching Experience at the New York Aquarium
Kids get a new hands-on experience with a newly opened touch tank at the New York Aquarium.

(read the story...)

Color ‘em Kermie!
Kermit sang ‘It’s not easy being green,” but visitors to the new exhibit, Frogs: A Chorus of Colors, at the American Museum of Natural History, can see that frogs have an amazing diversity of color. And size, habitat and parenting style. The frogs exhibit appeals to the little kid in all of us, the one who caught frogs in a pond, played leapfrog, or worshipped Kermit. Then there are adults still searching for a frog to turn into a prince. (read the story...)

“Hello, MET!”… and then some
The Metropolitan Museum of Art is no dour echo chamber. Most art museums specialize in tomb-like solemnity, but the Met, with its Great Hall decorated daily with fresh flowers, resonates with upbeat voices that instantly slap down any idea of a menacing cultural encounter. At the Met, even Wednesdays have a Sunday-in-the-park feeling. A similar sense of pleasure marks the museum's programs for kids and families. (read the story...)

Florida Road Trip Begets the Real Thing
The birth of Baby Road Trip, a new edutainment video series that (so far) extols the wonders of beach and jungle destinations, was not easy. But it continues to be a creative challenge with which husband-and-wife co-founders Laura and Shawn Kronen are thrilled. (read the story...)

CELEBRATING SEUSS…Thoughts on inspiration . . . from local kids’ authors
If you looked through the bookshelves of any child in America, chances are there would be at least several Dr. Seuss books. Amazingly, if you looked through that child’s parents’ childhood book collection, you would probably see many of the same Dr. Seuss titles. Theodor Geisel, born 100 years ago, wrote and illustrated 44 books as Dr. Seuss — books that still charm, educate and tickle the funnybones of children. Dr. Seuss’s books have also influenced a generation of children’s book authors. We asked some locally to expound on Dr. Seuss’s impact on their writing. . . (read the story...)
