Picture Books We Love

Book Fest Countdown: Laura Vaccaro Seeger

We’re proud to announce that our summer Children’s Book Festival will be held on Saturday, June 12th.  This year’s theme is Dogs in Picture Books and we have a terrific day planned, packed with storytimes, book signings, art demonstrations, music and lots more fun dog-themed activities.  Come meet other dog lovers and chat with our friends from the Dakin Pioneer Valley Humane Society and Canine Companions. And, of course, your stuffed dog friends are welcome, but please leave your real dogs at home. Can’t wait to see which of your favorite picture book dogs (and their creators) will be here?  Come back often as we’ll reveal an artist/author each day leading up the the big event!  See you there! Woof. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Say hello to Laura Vaccaro Seeger.  Here she is with her dog, Cooper, the real dog behind her popular DOG AND BEAR book series. Laura has written many award-winning picture books and has now three wonderful books in her popular DOG AND BEAR series, each featuring sweet and funny stories of friendship, perfect for lap-reading.  She lives in Rockville Centre, Long Island with her family and of course, Cooper and Bear. You can see Cooper and Bear act out the book live in this super cute movie made by Laura's 12-year-old son Dylan. We have Laura's books for sale in our shop, including her popular DOG AND BEAR books.  Click here to purchase the books and be sure to stop by our auditorium at 3:30 0n Saturday for Laura's presentation.  Don't forget to check back with us after June 12th to see if we have signed books in stock.  See you Saturday! And definitely check out Laura's blog for a downloadable DOG AND BEAR Storytime Activity Kit and lots more activities perfect to use in the classroom or at home.
