Balloons Over Broadway

from the Balloons Over Broadway activity kitMelissa Sweet, an illustrator whose work I have long admired, joined us in New York for this last weekend sewing workshop. Melissa's newest book, Balloons Over Broadway, tells the incredible story of the man behind the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Balloons. Highly recommended holiday reading!! And if you need a littte craft to keep the kids occupied while the turkey cooks, Melissa made an amazing activity kit check out Melissa's appearance and craft how-to on Martha.This amazing book and more picture books about New York City traditions were reviewed last weekend in a lovely piece in the New York Times.
