Where Kids Rule


Celebrate iconic author Jerry Spinelli's birthday on February 1 with his latest book, Hokey Pokey. In a place reminiscent of Peter Pan's Neverland, children live together without adults from diapers to adolescence. But for Jack, one of the big kids in Hokey Pokey, things are beginning to change: his tattoo, the one that every Hokey Pokey resident has, is beginning to fade and he hears a faint train whistle he's never heard before. For parents with big kids who are turning the corner into adolescence, Hokey Pokey. is a good introduction to the transition ahead--and a great read to boot.
