Chungaboo, an Austin-based children’s publishing company, will host the Chungaboo BookBash on Saturday, July 13, 2013, from 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM, at Central Market North Lamar. Emmy Award winning Biscuit Brothers will headline this free event, paired with other performances by Staci Gray, Joe McDermott, Violet Crown Collective, and other children’s activities! Little Turtle Yoga will even teach some new yoga poses before kicking off readings of Chungaboo’s latest children’s books The Color Door, The Well, and Teya Toucan and Youcan Too!
“We’re thrilled to host the inaugural Chungaboo BookBash at Central Market North Lamar! The Biscuit Brothers and other performances lined up should create a fun family experience. This event also serves as a launch pad for the first printed edition of some of our eBooks like The Well and Teya Toucan and YouCan Too!” says Sarah Marquez, Co-Founder of Chungaboo.
Attendees will have the opportunity to explore Chungaboo’s newest children’s stories, which feature rich storytelling and artwork as uniquely original as the city that inspired them. The Well, The Color Door, and Teya Toucan and Youcan Too! will be available for purchase during the festivities along with other Chungaboo products and items from our friends, including Mariposas Spanish School and All Things Kids. Miles Wisniewski, illustrator for The Well and The Color Door will even be onsite to autograph the books upon request.
- Teya Toucan and Youcan Too! is a beautifully animated ABC rhyming story that combines the discovery of animals with the excitement of learning to read. This interactive story will leap from the page and touch your heart.
- The Color Door is a charmingly illustrated rhyming adventure about a young boy and a mysterious door that leads him to an exciting new friendship. An intriguing new world is sure to change his life forever.
- The Well is a captivating journey expressed through a young boy’s imaginative dreams. A little red bird guides him on this journey through a dark forest, intriguing well, and stormy sea. This enchanting story is entertaining for young readers independently, but offers an opportunity for parents to read along and teach new vocabulary words.
This family-friendly event will be packed with performances and activities including face painting, a balloon artist and much more! While this event is free, attendees are encouraged to bring a new book to donate to the Half Pint Library at Dell Children’s Medical Center to help spread the love of reading for children in need.
