Jumpstart’s Read for the Record

The pages of Watty Piper and Illustrations by Loren Long came alive in this children’s exhibit deigned and produced by Glenn Mahoney. The display included a life size “Little Blue Engine” made out of foam complete with characters from the book. Slides in the shapes of bridges were constructed that allowed children to slide in to the different areas of the exhibit. A host of celebrities including Matt Lauer and May Michael Bloomberg read to the children atop a stage car.
