Jimmy Fallon Mama Book

Jimmy Fallon Mama Book Launch

Anyone that knows me knows I'm a softie when it comes to books. I put my foot down with my girls on many purchases. I make them wait or spend their allowance money. Not when it comes to books. I think books open the world up to kids. I knew about Jimmy Fallon's Dada book - a cute idea trying to get baby's first word to be "dada." And when I was invited to the Jimmy Fallon Mama Book launch party, I RSVP'd an enthusiastic YES!

Jimmy and Hoda Rainbow Room

Held at the swank Rainbow Room restaurant atop Rockefeller Center, the room alone was worth the trip. Today Show friends and family were there along with a few bloggers. Hoda Kotb warmed up the crowd as we nibbled and sipped and looked at Jimmy's new book. Then the man of the hour arrived.

Jimmy has brought a heavy dose of kindness to the late night talk show "wars." As host, he plays the role of affable labrador. He's always up for a game or a giggle. Well, true to form at the Jimmy Fallon Mama Book launch he was warm and approachable. After a brief Q & A, Jimmy gathered the kiddos around him and read his book.

Mama Book Illustrations

Yep, I loved the sloth illustration, though the owl page might have been my favorite. It's a fun book for kids 2 and under - they'll gravitate to the funky illustrations by Miguel Ordóñez and cool color combinations. I bet it's going to be on heavy rotation in a lot of houses.
