As we wrap up the holiday weekend, we may be thinking of things we are thankful for, and creative kids’ stories are way up there. One of the all-time greats in that department is the Alsatian triglot artist-author Tomi Ungerer, who turns 87 next week and is still going strong. The first story is a holiday tale inspired by Hans Christian Anderson’s classic The Matchstick Girl and is quite the foil to Black Friday weekend. Come join us in the kids’ section for a cozy weekend storytime to help us wish him a happy birthday!

*Special note for parents: As usual, we’ll have related extra books on hand in case you are looking for other excellent picture books we recommend! Particular emphasis is placed on striking illustrations, great graphic design or standout writing. Titles may be brand new, old treasures, from home, our Kids’ Section or the library, but they are always picked with love and a sense of adventure. If there’s a book you’d love, consider our ordering service!

It’ll be about a 45 minute read with something fun for the kids–that’s going to be interesting, we can’t wait to see what they come up with.

All ages are welcome.

On Sunday mornings, bring your kids and infuse them with a love of reading.
