I love Eric Lutwin and his Pete the Cat series! I saw him once and he is such a great entertainer. I can't believe I missed this!
That is so nice of the author Eric Litwin to spend some time with kids. I keep telling my friends that the kids are our future and we should all try to set the right example by interacting with them instead of ignoring them.
