Playdate Kids Publishing at LA Times Festival of Books 4/28-29

Los Angeles, CA (April 30, 2007)— Leave it to Playdate Kids Publishing to make the L.A. Times Book Festival just a little bit more… playful. This past weekend, on April 28-29, 2007, Playdate Kids Publishing featured their new musical series at the 2007 Los Angeles Times Festival of Books on the UCLA campus.

Children and parents alike enjoyed the acoustic music performed by the author, Tim Friedlander, while publisher, Tena Fanning, encouraged sing-alongs and danced with the gathering crowd of book lovers of all ages. The “Playdate Kids” trademark of colorful illustrations captured kids’ attention while older booth visitors lauded the books for including multi-cultural characters that “represented real people.”

Author Tim Friedlander shares, “The music was definitely a draw for the crowds. I’m a little hoarse today, but it was totally worth it to see how motivated parents are to read with their kids.”

Playdate Kids Publishing also had their animated DVD “The Playdate Kids” playing at the booth. “Parents and kids loved the movie and the ‘pay it forward’ message. Kids would walk by just to look at the booth but they would end up sitting in the colorful director chairs and watching the entire show. Parents literally had to drag them away,” says Fanning.

Recently praised by parents, teachers and family therapists as amusing and effective life tools, The Playdate Kids musical series gives children the vocabulary and behaviors they need to learn about hygiene, manners and self-confidence—motivating while entertaining. Playdate Kids Publishing booths always stand out from the crowd, with colorful, high-energy activities and a film set feel. The booth is a “must see” for all who attend the Book Expo America in New York on June 1-3, 2007. You can find them at Booth #707 in the children’s pavilion.

Tim Sandtler: Duelling In The Park
An exciting season in the Formula Master series came to an equally exciting conclusion in the royal park of Monza. In the first race, cars went flying in all directions on the historic circuit and the number of laps where the safety car was not leading the way were in the minority. Tim was one of the few drivers who kept his cool and avoided getting involved in any of the
Tim Sandtler: Matching The Leaders For Speed
An exciting track, P3 in qualifying and a spectacular chase in Sunday’s race: Imola came so close to providing the long-awaited success for Tim. “Things were looking so good,” he says wistfully. “It’s all the more annoying to know that you could have been up there with the front-runners on your own merit.” But it wasn’t to be. In free practice, Tim immediately adjusted to the new track despite the
Tim Sandtler: Continuing to make headway
Tim had mixed feeling about his return to Brands Hatch. Friday brought a sensation of déjà-vu, as he was already familiar with the 1.93km reduced-length circuit from the Formula 3 Euro Series. For the qualifying session on Saturday and without any extra time for free practice, they switched to the 3.7km full-length circuit which Tim and half the other contestants had never driven on before. “The additional part of the track
Tim Sandtler: First Breath Of Podium Air
As the season reached its halfway point in Estoril, Tim found himself on the podium for the first time in his Formula Master career. In qualifying, he already had the strong feeling that he and his team were starting to get things right. “The characteristics of the Estoril circuit are actually quite similar to those of Valencia,” says Tim. “The track surface is very rough and aggressive, so I had

Star-studded, glamorous and technically demanding – street circuits hold a special fascination for the motor racing world. One thing that all street circuits have in common is the virtual impossibility of staging an overtaking manoeuvre, particularly in rainy conditions when the risk of an accident increases dramatically. But that wasn’t going to stop Tim Sandtler doing
Tim Sandtler: Catch-up in the rain
Race weekends are a law unto themselves and every race track has its own peculiarities. Just two of the lessons that Tim will be taking away with him from the opening Formula Master event in Valencia. During the winter tests, Tim was up with the front-runners right from the start. Even when he briefly got behind the wheel for the first test in Monza, he was amongst the leading group.
