Mo has written many children’s books, including “The Pigeon Has to Go to School!” “I Will Take a Nap!” and “Knufflebunny”, and certainly knows how to draw children’s attention. He records Lunch Doodles from his own home and the videos are shared weekday at 1 p.m. EST on Kennedy Center’s YouTube account and their website.

“I know a lot of you guys are not in school,” said the author in the introductory video uploaded on Monday. “You’re at home right now because of all the things that are going on. Well, guess what? I’m at home, too. We’re gonna hang out together.”

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
