Tina Turbin wrote her first children’s story at age 16. She has led an exciting life: Born in Hawaii and featured in LIFE magazine with Bing Crosby’s family at the tender age of 36 months as a top swimmer for the Red Cross, Tina has lived in England, Puerto Rico and the West Coast of the United States. The arts have always surrounded her and been a major part of her life. While working in the entertainment industry in Los Angeles, California, Tina raised three very talented and successful children. She ran her own consulting business and studio, Show Biz Kidz, through which she and her staff along with local Hollywood studio staff helped many children in movies and television lead healthy and successful lives. Bi-coastal since the mid-nineties, Tina wrote and lectured on her book Show Biz Kidz East Coast Guidebook, which supplied answers for southern East Coast families. This series fulfills a passion of mine to delight children and their families with some magic, the spirit of fun and imagination, which I feel really should be preserved in every child at all stages. I truly believe there is no reason the “flame of life” should burn out just because we grow older and have to take on more responsibilities.

This book is so adorable. I can get about half way until my 15 month old and 3 year old get bored, like any typical kid. The door knob and bookmark were totally adorable. Both a great surprise when we opened the book.I can’t give books to my kids, as one will eat the pages and the other will tear them or fold them. So before bed I will read them this book. It takes my 15 month old a few minutes until he passes out. It’s so funny. He is really into creatures and non human like things. Winston enjoys it more then my 3 year old. The book is very colorful and elicits tons of “point and say what it is”, which teaches kids about things. Since they say “point and say” is better than actually reading the book. The company ships quite fast and great customer service!
