Last weekend, Susan and I had so much fun hanging out with the Reading Rainbow team at the OC Children's Book Festival. The one day it decided to rain in SoCal was the day of the festival, but while it started out soggy, it bloomed into a beautiful and sunny day! We met so many enthusiastic book lovers and super talented authors and illustrators, like our friend Adam T. Newman and awesome Salina Yoon. We signed Rhino books for a new crop of Reading Rainbow kids and cheered when Sangita Patel accepted an award on LeVar's behalf...only his life-sized standee could make it to the the festival.
What an awesome way to spend the day!
