Ages 3-8

Celebrate Father's Day with the great comic artist and creator of children's books, Liz Climo! She will share some of her books and do a drawing demonstration. In the charming Rory the Dinosaur: Me and My Dad (a perfect Father's Day gift!), Rory loves spending time with his dad, but today he wants to go on his own adventure and explore his island home. He can't wait to tell his dad all about the things he can do all by himself, from crossing rivers to finding shelter from the rain. Little does Rory know, his father is never far behind. Liz Climo celebrates the bond between father and child with her adorable, deceptively simple illustrations and her timeless story of a child's quest for independence.
