Our friends at Red Tricycle recently announced their 2012 Totally Awesome Awards. There are a lot of great categories (Artistic Art Supplies, Wheely Cool Bike Gear), and even local picks for families (eateries, music classes) in large metro areas, such as LA and Chicago.
I was especially thrilled to see one of my favorite picture books, Ish, by Peter Reynolds, nominated in the Beloved Bedtime Stories category. The simple story celebrates creativity in kids and is part of Reynold’s Creatrilogy series, which also includes The Dot and Sky Color. My boys are teenagers now, but they’ll still occasionally pick up our copies of the books and reread them, always with a smile on their faces.
