This is the first in what ultimately was a series of six books starring the lovable Cowgirl Kate and her proud, faithful steed, Cocoa. The whole series is an ode to friendship, and in that sense, the books are all really quite lovely. Through Kate and Cocoa’s adventures, kids can see that friendship can be a lot of fun…but also a lot of work.
This past Saturday was The Big Build at the National Building Museum in DC. We’re big fans of the museum, but we’ve never been to this annual event. I think it’s safe to say we’ll be adding it to our regular late summer/early fall rotation. We had an awesome time. Definitely recommended.
This coming weekend, September 21-22, has a ton of exciting events in and around Washington, DC. Where are the Roarbots going?
On Saturday, we’re headed to the National Building Museum for The Big Build, which runs from 10-4. We’ve never been (though the ‘Bots are huge fans of the Building Museum), but I’ve heard great things about the event, and it promises to be a good time.
Sure, it might be a subtle ad for Chipotle, and yes, it’s also an ad for an app of the same name, but The Scarecrow is flat-out gorgeous. Released less than a week ago, the video already has more than 4 million views on YouTube, so I feel a little late to the party. However, this is one of the best animated shorts I’ve seen all year, and it’s certainly better than the new Mickey Mouse shorts (a la Ren & Stimpy). Enjoy!
