PICK A PERFECT EGG Storytime and Egg Hunt with Author Patricia Toht
March 11 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 amFree
Come to Booked for an egg hunt and a storytime celebrating two new picture books from Patricia Toht: PICK A PERFECT EGG and TOGETHER WITH YOU.
PICK A PERFECT EGG is a holiday ode that hops through a busy springtime day. From the farm where you’ve carefully selected your eggs—eggs perfect for drawing on with crayon, for plopping into dyes and bejeweling—follow along as preparations continue for the much-awaited Easter festivities.
In TOGETHER WITH YOU, a grandmother and grandchild keep dry in spring showers, stay cool in summer with a squirt of the hose, then savor frozen treats in the shade. In autumn, snug in sweaters, they fly a kite while leaning into each other against the wind. And winter finds them nestling under blankets, sipping cocoa and watching the snow quietly fall. This charming story makes it clear that “no matter the weather, whatever we do, every day’s better together with you.”
Author Patricia Toht will read and sign the new books, plus we’ll have an egg hunt through the bookstore! PICK A PERFECT EGG and TOGETHER WITH YOU are geared for children 3-7 years old, but readers of all ages will enjoy the sweet story and beautiful illustrations by Jarvis.
