With so many distractions these days from video games, computers and TV, many parents recognize how difficult it can be to get their kids to read books. But at bookstores, schools and libraries, young children find themselves curiously mesmerized by glamorous drag queens reading to them. At Drag Queen Story Hour this afternoon, host Michael Roybal-Gonzalez presents the fabulously bewigged and bedazzling Valora von Tease. Ms. von Tease tells us she'll be reading from Jessica Herthel's I Am Jazz, which is based on the life of transgender kid Jazz Jennings, and Sarah Hoffman and Ian Hoffman's Jacob's New Dress, which focuses on a boy who's simply much happier wearing dresses to school.
