Building Baby’s Library

The Wonder Within

The Wonder Within

For Kansas City native Carey Wickersham, writing her new book, The Wonder Within You, has been a labor of love. Quite literally.

Review: The Wiz at The Coterie

Review: The Wiz at The Coterie

This week, I took my girls to a showing of The Wiz, an abbreviated version of the 1975 Broadway musical offering a :multi-cultural view of Oz with a soulful twist." The Wiz turned film in the 1978 movie starring Diana Ross and Michael Jackson and it featured many popular songs, the most famous being Ease on Down the Road.
