because it was sweltering out there on the mall
at the national book festival,
we basically just hit up the PBS booth.
beyond the swag of free reusable bags filled with books, stickers, fans and posters,
there was live kid’s music, games, coloring and craft tables,
tattoo stickers of PBS characters, and PBS mascots.
it took aya a few tries before she would even give one a high-five.
