In The Moment … November 24, 2020 Show 948 Hour 2

Now it's time to get a little bit messy. Grown-ups, put down your cell phones and pick up a book. Reading is very pandemic friendly. Sean Covel is the author of the children's book series "Porter the Hoarder." It's an interactive romp through ransacked rooms, gold coins, and candy explosions.

Thousands of copies of the book "Porter the Hoarder" will make their way into the hands of school children in South Dakota. It comes in a package that includes "parent homework," encouraging parents and kids to read together.

Movie producer and writer Sean Covel joins us today to talk about the "Porter the Hoarder" Reading and Family Engagement Program - and his Christmas book "Marlon McDoogle's Magical Night."
