Virtual Storytime with Paul Meisel
Sunday August 16 | 11:00AM - 12:00PM
Join local Connecticut author Paul Meisel on our Instagram as he reads My Stinky Summer by S. Bug, a hilarious and scientifically accurate bug's-eye-view of the life cycle of a stinkbug! Perfect for little ones ages 3-7.
From the day he is born, S. Bug hears the same refrain--"Ew! Stinkbug!" The stinkbug's odor is powerful protection against predators. Perhaps too powerful. Readers will also learn about the challenges that arise when an ecosystem is pushed off-balance.
Virtual Storytime with Carrie Finison
Sunday August 23 | 11:00AM - 12:00PM
Join Carrie Finison on our Instagram as she reads Dozens of Doughnuts, a delightful debut picture book about counting, sharing, and being a good friend.
LouAnn (a bear) is making a doughnut feast in preparation for her long winter's nap. But just before she takes the first bite, DING DONG! Her friend Woodrow (a woodchuck) drops by. LouAnn is happy to share her doughnuts, but as soon as she and Woodrow sit down to eat, DING DING! Clyde (a raccoon) is at the door. One by one, LouAnn's friends come over--Topsy (an opossum) and then Moufette (a skunk) and then Chip and Chomp (chipmunks)--until it's one big party. Louann welcomes her surprise guests and makes batch after batch of doughnuts, always dividing them equally among her friends. But she makes one BIG miscalculation. Soon LouAnn's kitchen is bare, winter is near, and she's had nothing to eat at all!
