The North Carolina Children's Book Festival celebrates wonderful children’s book classics such as "Green Eggs and Ham," "Where the Wild Things Are," and "Goodnight Moon." The festival celebrates the joy of reading, the power of the written words, and the magic of storytelling with children’s book authors and illustrators from around the country. The festival includes free activities and events both for children and their parents. There is face painting, balloon animals, and a “craft shack” to help engage the children, as well as book signings, book readings and story time by the authors. The festival website provides event details outlining the schedule, authors and illustrators, transportation, maps, and a downloadable event poster. The phone application helps way-finding in the venue. It provides users with a simple graphic representation of the festival booths' layout.
