Northshire Bookstore – Story time with the authors! M. K. Despres, Ginger Ragaishis, and Roberta Stone

May 4 @ 11:00am-12:00pm


Join us for a very special story time with three authors sharing new picture books!

Night Song by M. K. Despres

Every morning as the sun rises, Bernardo the frog loves greeting the day by listening to the beautiful birdsong that fills the woods with joy. Inspired, Bernardo attempts to sing, too… but his croaking voice doesn’t quite have the same effect. No matter what he does, Bernardo feels graceless and like he just doesn’t add up. Dejected and down in the dumps, Bernardo sees no place for himself, until a woodland neighbor praises the hushed sounds that dusk brings, thus awakening Bernardo to his place in the woods’ great symphony.

Student of the Month by Ginger Ragaishis

When Rory wonders why she’s been passed over for Student of the Month again, her best friend (and third-time Student of the Month winner) takes her on an adventure across New York City information booths to search for answers. In a search that spans iconic New York City landmarks-and one very special, hidden information booth-Rory will learn about hidden disabilities, and ways to overcome them.

I Have Four Eyes by Roberta Stone

“Why must I have four eyes when most of us have two?” asks a little girl who dislikes wearing glasses. Mama tells her stories about Impressionist painters who created beautiful artwork. They had a unique perspective when viewing the world, just like her daughter. Having two different ways of seeing is not a detriment, it is a gift. I Have Four Eyes encourages everyone to love what they are and embrace what they have.
