Children’s book author Lisa Caprelli has teamed up with Microsoft Office to host free “Parent and Me” Kids Workshop in Mission Viejo workshops year-round.
The workshop incorporates technology by Microsoft Office as well as enjoyment found in reading and writing, while Caprelli gives examples that directly relate to the Unicorn Jazz picture books.
Using Microsoft Surface Pro and the One Note Application, children will be allowed to utilize the Unicorn Jazz activity exercises to help express ideas about the story, including a character map and coloring book pages. The “Unicorn Jazz” videobook on Amazon Prime will also be showcased.
“Picture books come alive with the ideas and collaboration of writing, drawing and more,” says Caprelli. “Children enjoy relating to animal characters, which made it easier to introduce the main character, Unicorn Jazz, in all of the books.”
The next event will be Feb. 1 from 10 a.m. to noon in Mission Viejo, Calif.
