PASSOVER STORYTIME & BOOK SIGNING
April Halprin Wayland
Saturday, April 2, 10:30 a.m.
Ages 3-7

A family's Passover celebration is equal parts warmth and charm in April Halprin Wayland's delightful new picture book, More Than Enough: A Passover Story. A family prepares for their Passover seder, visiting the farmer's market for walnuts, lilacs, and honey, then chopping apples for the charoset, and getting dressed up before walking to Nana's house. The refrain throughout is "Dayenu"-- a mind-set of thankfulness, a reminder to be aware of the blessings in each moment. At Nana's, there's matzo ball soup, chicken, coconut macaroons, and of course, the hidden afikomen. Join in a singing of "Dayenu" and coloring fun!

Available for signing:

  • More Than Enough: A Passover Story  $16.99
  • New Year at the Pier: A Rosh Hashanah Story  $16.99

Stuart Gibbs is from the bestselling author of Belly Up, Spy School, and many more kid-favorite books. In Spaced Out, the second mind-boggling mystery of the Edgar-nominated Moon Base Alpha series, the moon base commander has gone missing and Dash Gibson is on the case. There's nowhere to hide on the world's first moon base. After all, it's only the size of a soccer field. So when Nina Stack, the commander of Moon Base Alpha, mysteriously vanishes, the Moonies are at a total loss. Though he may be just twelve years old, Dashiell Gibson is the best detective they've got. But this confusing mystery pushes him to his limits, especially since he has his own huge secret to protect.

AUTHOR TALK & BOOK SIGNING
Dan Santat
Thursday, May 5*
Ages 4-8
*School event, public invited - please call for details

Caldecott Medalist Dan Santat takes readers on the road trip of a lifetime in Are We There Yet? Every parent has heard this classic kid question on a long car ride--and after reading this astonishingly inventive new book (that even turns upside down for several pages!), you'll never look at being bored the same way again. In this book, a bored boy feels time slowing down so much that it starts going backward--into the time of pirates! Of princesses! Of dinosaurs! The boy was just trying to get to his grandmother's birthday party, but instead he's traveling through Ancient Egypt and rubbing shoulders with Ben Franklin. When time flies, who knows where--or when--he'll end up.

Available for signing:

  • Are We There Yet?  $17.99
  • The Adventures of Beekle: The "Unimaginary Friend (Caldecott Medal Winner 2015)  $17.99
