Every morning as the sun rises, Bernardo the frog loves greeting the day by listening to the beautiful birdsong that fills the woods with joy. Inspired, Bernardo attempts to sing, too… but his croaking voice doesn’t quite have the same effect. No matter what he does, Bernardo feels graceless and like he just doesn’t add up. Dejected and down in the dumps, Bernardo sees no place for himself, until a woodland neighbor praises the hushed sounds that dusk brings, thus awakening Bernardo to his place in the woods’ great symphony.

Join local author Mk Smith Despres as they read their debut picture book, Night Song, gorgeously illustrated by award-winning artist Hyewon Yum.
