This month I have an article in MUSE magazine, which is an excellent arts & science magazine for middle-graders from Cricket Media. I’ve done several other articles for the magazine, but this one was special because I got to write about one of my favorite places in my home town–the Madison Children’s Museum.
The article is about how playgrounds and children’s museums are designed so kids with disabilities and sensory-processing disorders can join in the fun. The MCM has an excellent program called “Sensory Friendly Hours” that I was so happy to learn and write about.
I’ve taken my daughter to the museum so many times I’ve lost count. This photo is from a few years ago, but it’s a pretty good example of the wonder and excitement you see on so many kids’ faces there. (It also happens to be the expression I hope kids have when they read my articles.)
