🎂 This is an awesome way for us to celebrate turning 64 years old!
#Dinner 🥘 + #familytime + playing with science = #lotsoflove and #lotsoflearning at the #ninePBS Ready To Learn session today called "The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That!" We are exploring the wonders of science that will build on children's curiosity about the natural world, introducing them to science concepts and providing a foundation for more science learning.
Thank you to our great partners at St. Louis Children's Hospital (@stlchildrens) for helping to make this a reality!
Plus, Hot Dog Daddy is providing dinner tonight. What a treat!

Sonny Fox, known as the Finder in the early days of KETC-TV, shows one of the station's cameras in July 1954 to children in the summer day camp at Hamilton School, 5851 Westminster Place. The station's first studio was in a gymnasium in McMillan Hall at Washington University. Fox was the "Finder" because he traveled the area in a Corvette searching for stories of interest to young people. (Buel White/Post-Dispatch)
