Can Your Kid Read Cursive?

Or, if they didn't literally see their favorite music star autograph something, would they know who it came from?

Well, those of you with varying levels of disposable income can find out, thanks to a couple auctions currently going on.

First up is an auction benefitting the Reading Reptile, a Kansas City (Missouri) children's bookstore which, if it's half as fun as their website, is probably about three times as fun as your regular life. They're having a Debt Reduction Day auction, which includes such Ralph's World items as an autographed Ralph Covert guitar and autographed copies of his new album The Rhyming Circus and his new book. Or, if you don't like that, have Bill Harley write you a song. (Or, if you don't like music, just go ahead and get that Kevin Henkes "Lilly" sketch.) You have 'til May 24 to find enough loose change in your couch.

And for those of you with more disposable income than I currently have and a tween girl, might I suggest the autographed Miley Cyrus guitar as part of the XM Kids Traveling Roadshow benefiting the Children's Miracle Network? Ralph's guitar is a lot cheaper right now, but Miley's guitar is a lot cooler...
