Saturday, Sept. 9th 11 am- Special Storytime with illustrator Priscilla Buriss

Posted By Once Upon a Time, Saturday, August 26, 2017

Join the storytime crowd as illustrator Priscilla Buriss reads from her delightful grandma-oriented picture book - GRANDMA'S TINY HOUSE. 

This sweet, rhyming counting book introduces young readers to numbers one through fifteen as Grandma’s family and friends fill her tiny house on Brown Street. Neighbors, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and grandkids crowd into the house and pile it high with treats for a family feast. But when the walls begin to bulge and no-body has space enough to eat, one clever grandchild knows exactly what to do.  Where there’s a will there’s a way when families grow and come together.
