DSCN9229I love how Macy’s has lots of great family friendly events at stores.  I got to check out a special day of events at the Macy’s in Herald Square, New York.  It was a lineup of two separate events in the children’s departments.

 

First up was Macy’s Reading Circle with a live reading of Tidy Mice written by Gioia Francella.

Author Gioia Francella was on hand to talk about her inspiration, her son and the book.  We were treated to a reading where Gioia, whose first language is Italian, led the children in hand motions.  The kids were so engaged and had a great time.

2013-09-21Next up we headed over to the teen department to check out the Radio Disney event.  The crowd was excited to see Chloe and Halle Bailey, season 5 winners of Disney’s Next Big Thing, in person.  The Radio Disney Road Crew did a great job of revving the crowd up with trivia and prizes.

Then fans had an opportunity to meet the sisters, get autographs and pose for pictures.
