more mo willems!

i accidentally stumbled upon the fact that a mo willems art exhibit opened the week before i arrived in new york. hello magic! of course i finagled our plans and convinced the crew to go. and with three kids in said crew, it was easy! the new york historical society museum and library was darling. it had the bat mobile, new york history stuff, a really cute children's area with interactive exhibits AND a super sweet little library with many books for kids to read. but the meat of it for me was MO WILLEMS! a serious favorite picture book author. pigeon, anyone?! and don't even get me started on elephant and piggie! i was mesmerized by the exhibit and dropped a wad in the gift shop. i'm so happy i found out it was there when i was! you know, just doing research for my job...
the bus! the pigeon drives as folks read. 
mounds of mo books to read inside the bus!
i had to read a pigeon book. 
the bus AND the hot dog? love this. 
bonus: this museum is right near cafe frida, which is one of our faves and they have amazing sangria, margaritas, guacamole and everything! highly recommend.
