When Grandma Mimi comes to visit, you’ll never know what she’ll have in her purse - fancy jewelry, tokens from around the world, or something special just for her granddaughter. It might look like a normal bag from the outside, but Mimi and her granddaughter know that it’s pure magic! Join author/illustrator Vanessa Brantley Newtown as she reads from her new book, Grandma’s Purse, an adorable, energetic ode to visits from grandma that shows how an ordinary day can become extraordinary.

“Brantley-Newton’s vividly colorful images paint the happiness the little girl feels in her grandmother’s presence. A strong intergenerational choice for any picture book collection.”–School Library Journal

Special Storytime: Jessie Sima

Harriet loves costumes. She wears them to the dentist, to the supermarket, and most importantly, to her super-special dress-up birthday party. Her dads have decorated everything for the party and Harriet has her most favorite costume all picked out for the big day. There’s just one thing missing—party hats! But when Harriet dons her special penguin errand-running costume and sets out to find the perfect ones, she finds something else instead—real penguins!

Join Jessie Sima, author and illustrator of the bestselling Not Quite Narwhal, as she reads from her new picture book Harriet Gets Carried Away, a sweet and funny story about remembering where you belong, no matter how far you roam, or what you’re wearing when you get there.
