Within the pages of a children’s book comes a wealth of learning opportunities for young children.   Join me as we explore and bring to life some of my favorite children’s books using unconventional materials, hands-on science, and a whole lot of imagination.

Michael Fritzen has worked in the informal education field for over 10 years. His work experience includes Head of Education and Public Programs at the USC Pacific Asia Museum, Head of Family Programs at the Skirball Cultural Center, creating, coordinating, and implementing all the enriching programs for the institution;  at the Natural History Museum of LA County, Los Angeles Zoo, Autry Museum, Wildlife On Wheels, and KidSpace Museum. In his spare time, he serves on the Jane Goodall Institute’s Roots & Shoots committee, as well as the LA environmental education fair board, teaches art programs around Los Angeles, docents at the Los Angeles Zoo, and serves on the board of the California Association for the Education of Young Children.
