The Magic Poof Tours the Big Apple!

March 21, 2018

The Magic Poof visited PS.46, The Arthur Tappan School in Harlem, Queens Explorers Elementary and Spruce Street Elementary in Manhattan reading and sharing books to over four hundred students while spreading the message of the importance of Inclusion and Diversity in media.

 

Our student readers and audience particularly loved the message that it's ok to feel different all while asking some very informed questions on what it's like to create your own books. The Poof would like to thank Lena Hilliard of Charles James Fox CS 150 in the Bronx for her support that allowed these visits to happen!
