HOOT! HOOT! PARTY TIME! Yesterday afternoon, we celebrated the release my newest picture book, LOVE IS KIND (Zonderkidz, August 2018) at lovely book store gathering with lots of enthusiastic young readers and their families. The celebration included meeting Little Owl, hearing the story, making owl masks, taking pictures in the DIY-photo booth that Miss A. and I created, and, of course, signing books! Thank you to everyone who came and to Barnes and Noble in Springfield for hosting the event – my fourth at their lovely store. (And I was delighted to meet people who’d learned of the event because of my efforts to spread the word through social media and old-fashioned flyers – proof that invitations work!)
Here are a few pictures that capture both the prep work and the event itself. (I just wish I’d taken a picture of the kids making their masks which were so colorful and CUTE!) It’s a SLIDE show! (I just discovered this feature.) Enjoy!
