Special Storytime: Tom Lichtenheld

June 25, 2017
11:00am
Free with Museum Admission

Join illustrator Tom Lichtenheld for a special storytime and drawing demonstration for Mighty, Mighty, Construction Site, the companion book to the international bestseller Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site. All of our favorite trucks are back on the construction site—this time with a focus on team-building, friendship, and working together to make a big task seem small!

"Construction-loving kids will adore the wealth of details . . . Lichtenheld's colorful wax-oil pastels burst with the trucks' activity and make creative use of inset illustration panels . . . It drives home good lessons on hard work and teamwork. People will be revving their engines to get their hands on this sequel." ~ Booklist
