I don’t know if anyone out there is local, but the Pittsburgh International Children’s Festival is being held May 13-17. The reason I mention it is one of the performances is based on a story I remember from my childhood and that I read to Amber when she was little, Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown, pictures by Clement Hurd.

goodnightmoon Two of Margaret Wise Brown and Clement Hurd’s beloved bedtime classics, Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny come to life on stage with whimsical puppetry and evocative music. Both tales feature endearing rabbit characters, and the soothing rhythms of bunny banter, while dream-like imagery never fails to infuse young readers with a reassuring sense of security and peace.
