What’s not to love when a kid gets to enjoy an afternoon filled with balloons, face painting and colorful books? Elizabeth Street, the go-to site for trendy moms in the city, recently hosted a book launch for children’s author Kelly Florio Kasouf’s debut title. “The Super Adventures of Sophie and the City: All in a Day’s Work” follows Sophie as she discovers her dad’s work in fashion publishing. Ms. Florio Kasouf based the story on her own experiences with her late father, Steven Florio, who was CEO and president of Condé Nast for over a decade. Diane Von Furstenberg and Isaac Mizrahi make star appearances, as Sophie realizes some terrific life lessons. The book is available at Amazon.com, Barney’s, Bergdorf Goodman and Fred Segal.
Fabulous moms (and a few nannies and guardians) celebrated the new tome, in a Madison Avenue boutique, alongside Elizabeth Street Moms co-hosts Coralie Charriol and Rosie Pope. Adorable kids took pleasure in special book readings, making balloon animals and having their faces decorated—all while cranking up their energy levels with sandwiches, doughnuts and macaroons. Scooter was on the scene to take in all the action!
