Heartfelt New Picture Books to Share!

Join us virtually to meet a sweet little cat that was the underdog of a prestigious Cat Show, then follow along as a girl reminisces about all the lovely things her grandfather taught her, next join a knight in his quest to find his missing father, and then watch as a little girl overcomes her stage fright!

Tune in for:
  • How Mr. Silver Stole the Show by KATE KLISE and illustrated by M. SARAH KLISEOn a rainy morning in 1947, a small gray kitten wandered into the Hamilton Hotel in St. Louis, Missouri, two days before the Greater St. Louis Cat Club Show. A stray kitten. A fancy hotel. A serious contest for pedigreed cats. What could possibly go right?

  • Lolo's Sari-Sari Store by SOPHIA N. LEE. For one girl, summers used to mean helping Lolo run his sari-sari store, which was always brimming with goods for the neighborhood, and a sympathetic ear for anyone who needed it. Now that she’s far from the Philippines, she misses Lolo and the friendly faces that surrounded his sari-sari store. But when she remembers her grandfather’s words, her heart keeps Lolo close, and she starts to see opportunities for connection and community in her new home.

  • Sir Morien by HOLLY BLACKThe brave North African knight Morien is on a quest to find his father, who had set off on an adventure of his own and never returned. But every knight he meets wants to fight! At first, Morien is determined to best them all, until he meets some knights willing to quest with him. Together, they discover not only the importance of friendship, but also Morien’s long-lost father!

  • Etta Extraordinaire by CHARNAIE GORDONEtta was born to be a shining star. When Etta discovers her school is hosting a talent show, she wants to share her many talents with the world. Even though she has never performed onstage before, all Etta needs to do is make a plan (Etta always has a plan!). And in 1, 2, 3, 4 steps, she’s ready for her big performance on the big stage in front of a BIG audience... Or is she?
