What’s YOUR big IDEA? (A Workshop for Kids, with Lowey Bundy Sichol!)

Kids: What’s YOUR big IDEA? Join Lowey Bundy Sichol, the author of From an Idea to...the world's first business biographies for kids and creator of Winnetka IDEA Tank for Kids

During this interactive session, Lowey will explain how some of the biggest and best-known companies on the planet were once just a bright individual with a new idea and give tips on what makes a good business idea. Kids will get a chance to brainstorm their own outside-the-box ideas with Lowey and learn how to turn that idea into a real business plan. Perfect for budding entrepreneurs and kids thinking about participating in next year’s IDEA Tank. 

We'll serve up an afternoon snack, because hey--thinking makes you hungry.  The cost of the workshop is $6.00, and includes your child's choice of Lowey's books From An Idea to Disney, From An Idea to Google, From an Idea to Lego or From An Idea to Nike. Registration is requested, please call us at 847-446-8880 or email events@thebookstall to reserve your child's spot, as space is limited.  We recommend this event for ages 7 - 11.
