On Saturday August 6th kids and families gathered on Governor's Island to join LittleCollector, Abe's Penny and the Children's Museum of the Arts for a day of stories, songs, arts and crafts! To celebrate the latest issue of Abe's Peanut, a mail art publication just for kids, LittleCollector's Educational Consultant Amanda Hendricks debuted her story "Kingsley Monkey and the Super Fast Bus" which was illustrated by Little Collector artist Yukie Yasui. Kids then made their own postcard pictures in the style of Abe's Peanut in beautiful watercolors with help from Yukie, Amanda, moms and dads. It was a sunny, fun and art-filled afternoon on Governor's Island. Thanks to all who joined us!
And watch Amanda tell the story of Kingsley Monkey and the Super Fast Bus:
