Saturday, May 9th at 11am

Come meet award-winning children’s book author/illustrator Mike Curato as he reads and draws from Little Elliot, Big City. Mr. Curato is the winner of the 2014 Founder’s Award from the Society of Illustrators.

Little Elliot, a charming new picture book character, lives among the hustle and bustle of the big city. Despite big crowds and bigger buildings, Little Elliot leads a quiet life. Though he faces challenges, Elliot finds many wonderful things to enjoy — like cupcakes! And when his problems seem insurmountable, Elliot discovers something even sweeter — a friend.

Children in Kindergarten and up are invited to join Mr. Curato as he shares his talents with us. Drop-in, no registration necessary, though space is limited. The first thirty attendees will receive complimentary posters and tote bags in celebration of Children’s Book Week.

Her voice is lush, her songs funny and poignant, and her upbeat melodies and playful harmonies are reminiscent of a doo-wop band. Her album, Good Morning My Love, was a Gold Award Winner from both the Parents' Choice Foundation and from National Parenting Publications and was named by Laurie Berkner a 2012 favorite (USA Today).

Parents often say that Vered’s music is like a soundtrack to life with their little ones, adding melody and bounce to the ups and downs, joyful interactions, and daily routines. Her band, Vered and the Babes, bring a variety of instruments including pots and pans, french-horn and trumpet, and always have the kids and parents jumping and singing along.

All Ages. Drop-in.

In the Louise Parker Berry Community Room.
