We are excited to host Instagram sensations Laura Izumikawa and daughter Joey at a book signing event at the Southern California Children’s Museum on Saturday, June 2 from 10:30 am to Noon!

Naptime With Joey, is a delightful photo book featuring Laura’s now internet-famous daughter dressed up in various pop culture costumes. In the book, you’ll see Joey Marie wearing many hats (or, rather, wigs): she’s dressed up as Inigo Montoya, Britney Spears, Beyoncé, Pikachu, Anna Wintour, Moana, and Barb from Stranger Things. She’s taken trips to Hawaii, baked croissants, and blasted off to the moon as an astronaut (at least, in her dreams). She’s held occupations such as pizza chef, aerobics instructor, and handy-dandy-fixer-upper (figuratively, of course). She’s inspired a parenting blog, been the face of her mom Laura Izumikawa’s Instagram account—and for the first time, she’s taken the leap from the ranks of internet-baby-snoredom to the pages of a book.

Tickets are $25 each and includes:

– Entry for one adult and up to one child (age 12 and under)

– One copy of Naptime with Joey

– Light refreshments

– One Raffle ticket

There are only a limited number of tickets available! Purchase your tickets here today!  

What is the Southern California Children’s Museum?

We are a non-profit organization that caters to the under 8 age group, specifically focusing on enhancing their experience in Visual Arts, Performing Arts, Culinary Arts, and My California. The children of our community and beyond can learn about culture and the arts while meeting developmental milestones – all through imaginative play.
