Saturday Storytime with Matthew Cordell: Cornbread & Poppy for the Win

Community Event

Join The Book Stall on Saturday, June 22 at 10:30 am for a fun story time and draw along with Matthew Cordell, celebrating the 4th book in his beloved “Cornbread & Poppy” series, Cornbread & Poppy for the Win. Matt will show kids how to draw Cornbread and Poppy, and we’ll serve up Cornbread and Poppyseed muffins! The newest book in Caldecott medalist Matthew Cordell’s bestselling early reader series tells a story about championship-level teamwork, celebrating both partnership and the value of what makes us individuals. Young readers will find this classic odd couple irresistible as they encounter relatable issues with humor and heart. This event is perfect for kids ages 6 to 10.

More About the Book: Poppy LOVES shiny new racing gear. Cornbread does not. Poppy ADORES top secret master plans. Cornbread does not. Poppy IS super competitive. Cornbread…is not. But Cornbread and Poppy are the best of friends, so when Poppy is determined to win the Small Rodents Competitive Cycling Championship Classic, Cornbread agrees to train by her side. Cornbread has fun just spending time with his friend, but Poppy’s goal is scoring the Winner’s Cup. Is a finish line all these mice will discover at the end of their race?
