A Lithgow Palooza!: 101 Ways to Entertain and Inspire Your Kids
By John Lithgow
An activity that keeps kids from uttering those terrifying words, "I'm bored!"
You may know John Lithgow as star of stage, screen, and television or even as a bestselling children's book author. But his most important role -- parent -- was also the most fun. Whether building cardboard castles or putting on a "King and I" puppet show or conducting a treasure hunt in the National Gallery of Art, John has spent years perfecting the art of the palooza.
A palooza is easy to do!
A palooza doesn't cost much (some cost absolutely nothing)
A palooza is instigated or organized by parents but is quickly taken over by children
A palooza may involve a computer but never the TV
A palooza may use all varieties of arts and crafts
A palooza may secretly teach children (and parents!) a thing or two
A palooza is entertaining for the entire family
A palooza depends entirely on the inexhaustible creativity, ingenuity, imagination, and sense of fun of young minds
This book contains 101 ideas for creating paloozas for children ages 3 to 12 wherever you are. Grouped according to interests and themes -- like art, drama, music, vacations, and birthdays -- and incorporating lots of extrapaloozas, fun facts for parent and child, and suggested additional reading for all ages, John's paloozas range from adopting your own soup can for a day to inventing your own secret language to establishing left-handed day or creating a self-portrait. "A Lithgow Palooza!" is an utterly unique collection of original activities guaranteed to transform any household from bored to bubbling with fun."
