Author Mo Willems Invites Children To Doodle on YouTube

Acclaimed children's book author Mo Willems has teamed up with The Kennedy Center for a new YouTube series, titled "LUNCH DOODLES with Mo Willems."

The series encourages children to doodle and draw while they're at home during the quarantine.

"You might be isolated, but you’re not alone," the YouTube show description states. "You are an art maker. Let’s make some together."

The Facebook event for the series says:

"Mo Willems invites YOU into his studio every day for his LUNCH DOODLE. Learners worldwide can draw, doodle and explore new ways of writing by visiting Mo’s studio virtually once a day for the next few weeks. Grab some paper and pencils, pens, or crayons and join Mo to explore ways of writing and making together."

In the first episode, Willems invents a new character, answers fan questions, and dives into his collection of original work to share drafts, doodles and sketches from his hit book, "Don't Let The Pigeon Drive The Bus."

Watch the full episode below!

The limited series premieres every day at 1 pm from March 16-27 on YouTube.
