this celebratory picture book; Kleven’s brilliant, busy art gives it its soul.”

Reading Rainbow created four shows after 9/11 as an “Arc of healing.” Our BigHome was featured on their Global Unity Show.
The Our Big Home Reading Rainbow episode with LeVar Burton premiered at the United Nations on International Literacy Day. It was fun
to share this honor with author and friend Linda Glaser.
