A Fun Time Was Had By All

I had a book reading on Friday in Tuckahoe NY on Friday at Main Street Pediatric Dentistry and had a blast. I was part of the festivities in the First Annual Spooktacular Pajama Party Story Hour. I read from a few of my books as well as selected poems from the poetry collection, An Eyeball in My Garden. Everyone had a great time.

There were plenty of activities for the kids to do, including arts and crafts and pumpkin decorating. The kids were adorable. Most of them were in costume or wearing Halloween themed pajamas. The dentist’s office was unbelievable. The entire office has an undersea theme and the decorations are incredible. There’s a life-sized image of a diver in what seems to be a diving bell when you first walk into the waiting room. There are also alcoves that contain computer games and a TV. This place is definitely designed to entertain. If you live around Westchester County, NY, and your kids don’t like going to the dentist, I think this place just might change their minds. For anyone interested, the website is below.

How fun! Looks like everybody had a wonderful time. I'm sure the kids loved your presentation as well.

It looks like the kids had a great time. Costumes and everything. What a neat idea to have a book reading at a dentist office.

Thank you Susie and Suzanne. I'm pretty sure that both the kids and the adults had a great time. I know that I certainly did. :-)

What a super idea! I could have done with a reading when I took my three, years ago.

Thanks Nissi, I think I'll definitely be looking into doing more author readings like that. It was definitely a lot of fun.
