Item Description

 

Each of us has a handful of memories from our childhood that are, to this day,  so vividly recalled that they could have happened yesterday...

(I remember watching snow fall in south Texas when I was five years old, and the blue velvet dress I wore for my 8th birthday.)

We have been offered an experience so unique that I wish my children were young again!

NY Times Best Selling Children's Author and Radio Host Amy Krouse Rosenthal will call your child at home or at school and read them a story over the phone.   

She exudes that unique, undefinable 'something' that children gravitate to, so whether you want the perfect bedtime story read to the child who insists that they 'are not tired', or a lively rendition of any of her fun books...  the memory they have of that special phone call will be one they recall when they sit down to read a book to their children...

"Her books radiate fun the way tulips radiate spring: they are elegant and spirit-lifting."

The New York Times Book Review
