This year our Children’s Tent is packed with activity. We kick off the day at 11 with our beloved Mother Goose, the favorite of the very littlest bookfest visitors.
At 11:45 author Shanda Trent will join us to read her new picture book, Giddy-Up Buckaroos.
1t 1 p.m. you won’t want to miss the talented Kelly DiPucchio, who will be sharing How to Potty Train your Monster.
From 2 p.m. on the tent is filled with returning favorites! At 2 p.m. storyteller and librarians Laura Pershin Raynor and Kayla Coughlin present fall stories, along with an autumn craft for cruising through the festival. This is appropriate for younger kids.
And to cap off our day at 3:30, Ruth McNally Barshaw, the creator of the inimitable Ellie McDoodle, joins us for a drawing workshop where she’ll teach everyone How to Make a Lion from a 5. All ages are welcome at this presentation.
