Bring your young readers and listeners to Books of Wonder and join us for our ever-popular Storytime.
Each week, we choose several books from our shelves (based on the children attending) and sit down with children and their parents for a good, old-fashion, storytime. It's a fun filled time for all; please join us!
A knowledgeable resource in the children's book field, our staff began storytime at Books of Wonder several years ago and has been directing it ever since.
Come discover four incredible true stories at this non-fiction picture book panel! These four stories - from a little known tale from the struggle for civil rights to the story behind an object that saves lives every single day - will amaze and inspire your young readers!
Don't miss this chance to meet the amazing authors and illustrators behind these four inspiring picture books! Books of Wonder will be joined by ALICE FAYE DUNCAN, the author of Evicted!: The Struggle for the Right to Vote, YOLANDA GLADDEN, one of the authors of When the Schools Shut Down, JAMIE MICHALAK and DEBBI MICHIKO FLORENCE, the authors of Niki Nakayama: A Chef's Tale in 13 Bites, and KARYN PARSONS, author of Saving the Day: Garrett Morgan’s Life Changing Invention of the Traffic Signal.
