Saturday Storytime with Suzanne Slade

Community Event

The Book Stall (811 Elm Street in Winnetka) is delighted to host award-winning children’s author Suzanne Slade on Saturday, May 11 at 10:30 am for an in-store story time. Ms. Slade will be sharing two new picture books! Some Days Are Yellow uses lyrical text and colorful artwork to remind readers of all ages that life is a vibrant adventure with an array of experiences and emotions. Melodic text and gorgeous illustrations take flight in Behold the Hummingbird, an exploration of the tiny, gorgeous hummingbird and its astonishing abilities. Ms. Slade will share a behind-the-scenes glimpse of how the two books were created and do a reading. She will be happy to sign copies of her works!

More About Some Days Are Yellow: Some days are easy! The sky is sunny, and it feels like the whole world is your oyster. Everything goes according to plan, and we know what to expect. Other days are tough! There might be raindrops or skinned knees. Things don’t go our way and we feel overwhelmed. But that is the up-and-down rollercoaster ride we call life. And everyone experiences it. The most important thing to remember is “No matter your day, tomorrow’s brand new!” What a difference a day can make! This book is perfect for kids ages 0-5.

More About Behold the Hummingbird: Hummingbirds are tiny and pretty, so you might find yourself taking them for granted. But these little birds are remarkable, fierce, and talented. In Behold the Hummingbird, readers will learn about species that can hover like a helicopter, fly backwards and upside down, and consume half their body weight in a single day. This nonfiction picture book is perfect for kids ages 4-8.
