We're lucky to have talented authors in the area, and Kelly Starling Lyons is one of our favorites. Kelly returns on Saturday, March 5, at 2 pm for the debut of her new picture book. (Can you say 'launch party'?) The dinosaurs get their groove on in One More Dino On the Floor, a delightful counting book! With bright and colorful illustrations and fun, rhythmic text, young readers will be tapping their feet to the Jurassic beat! From the author of Ellen's Broom, Tea Cakes for Tosh, and more. You don't have to be a dinosaur lover to be wild about these critters. Ages 3+. Join us for kids' activities, a special dancing guest (!), fun and refreshments at the launch of this delightful new picture book.
