Book Bites for Kids: Interview with Laurie Monopoli – Thurs, Feb 24th at 2 pm CDT

Book Bites for Kids, hosted by Suzanne Lieurance is a delightful way to interact with children's book authors, illustrators, publishers, editors, and publicists to learn more about the world of children’s writing and publishing.

We are pleased to invite you to tune in on Thurs, February 24th at 2 pm CDT, at to meet Ms. Monopoli as she discusses her new book, The Book About Tony Chestnut.

Laurie Monopoli is an educational specialist, children’s advocate and founder of The Learning Station, a multi award-winning children’s educational music company. She has devoted 27 years to creating, healthy music for a child’s heart, body and mind. As a member of The Learning Station, the quality of Laurie’s work in the fields of early childhood education and children’s music are beyond comparison.

Her most recent accomplishment was to bring the much-loved characters of The Learning Station’s internationally acclaimed song, Tony Chestnut to life, in The Book About Tony Chestnut. The highly anticipated story was created from her intuitive understanding and respect for children. As she lovingly embraced her mission of lending faces, personalities and characters to the children, Tony Chestnut, Eileen, Neil, Pat, Bob, Russell and Skip, she drew upon her own childhood experiences. The story’s compassionate message of friendship, kindness and sympathy speaks to children in a language they can understand, and conveys just the right blend of entertaining, gentle humor with a meaningful, true-to-heart message.

Her ultimate goal was to creatively capture the young reader’s attention with a complete sensory experience in children’s literature. She achieved this by combining a child’s natural love of music and movement, with a beautifully, illustrated picture book that actually invites youngsters to actively interact with the storyline, unite in dance with the characters and as a result, stimulate a lasting experience that will foster a life-long love of reading.
