SATURDAY STORYTIME - DOUBLE FEATURE - DECEMBER 2
Join us with Madison Webb, and Patricia Austin for a special double storytime featuring their respective books - Mardi Gras in New Orleans and Elephant of Sadness, Butterfly of Joy.
Mardi Gras in New Orleans
Mardi Gras in New Orleans is a children’s picture book that sets young readers on a journey through the storied Carnival season in New Orleans through rich, vibrant imagery that excites, intrigues, and inspires. The story showcases all the fun aspects of Mardi Gras (beads, floats, marching bands), but ultimately leaves the reader feeling that Mardi Gras is something greater—it’s about community and the spirit that binds us all together.
Elephant of Sadness, Butterfly of Joy
Elephant of Sadness, Butterfly of Joy is a collection of twenty-four picture poems that explores the realm of human emotion. Each poem links an animal with an emotion and uses sensory imagery to spark childlike wonder, paint word pictures to ponder, and see the world from a new perspective.
