Forget about snuggling up in bed to read Eric Litwin's books out loud with your child, then watching him drift off to dreamland.
Sing those books. Dance them. ROCK them!
The children's author and performer, known for four books in the "Pete the Cat" series, is this year's Literacy in the Park headliner. Put on annually by Bowling Green State University, the event will feature signings and performances by Litwin, arts and crafts and other activities. The free program is April 5 at the Stroh Center.
Litwin said he has no plans to write any more of the popular "Pete the Cat" books, but he is coming out with a new picture book series, starting with "Bedtime at the Nut House," to be released this fall.
"The new books are musical and fun. It's about a family called the nuts and they're actually nuts," said Litwin, who added that book two is already in the works, along with two early-readers. "This series is fun. It's just great fun."
