By now, you may have already read about The Rabbit hOle, the ambitious new project from the owners of Reading Reptile, a children’s bookstore in Kansas City, Missouri. The video above is a great introduction to the project, and not just for the reference to rye whiskey.
This Kansas City Star article from April of this year is a good way to get the low-down on the project. As noted there, what Deb and Pete are going for is “a huge immersive museum and attraction called The Rabbit hOle, an ever-changing celebration of children’s literature. They’ve deemed it the world’s first Explorastorium.” They also like to think of it as a National Center for the Children’s Book. You could also watch this:
This is gonna be great, right?
I finally made my Rabbit hOle donation, and I’m doing my part to spread the word about the campaign, should any 7-Imp readers want to contribute too. Pete also tells me that they’re extending the campaign to Friday, June 10. There’s still time to donate to this incredible project that makes me want to live in Missouri right about now.
Here’s where you can donate, if you’re so inclined, to the Rabbit hOle, the world’s first ExploraStorium. Be double-sure to scroll down to see the “What’s Inside the World’s First ExploraStorium” map. It’s dreamy.
