A Parisian Scavenger Hunt with Katelyn Aronson, author of Piglette (ages 3-9) [Virtual Event, Library members only; RSVP Required]
May 15 @ 11 h 00 min - 12 h 00 min
For ages 3–9
3–9 year-olds and their grown-ups are invited to join us for a reading with author Katelyn Aronson as she reads her picture book Piglette, about a pig who finds a way to bring a little Parisian perfection back home to her pasture. Katelyn will be joined by illustrator Eva Byrne, who will show participants how to draw a very chic pig!
“Accompanied by pleasant, warm cartoons depicting family, friendship, and a little adventure, Piglette’s story is a joyful one that makes for an amusing read-aloud. A sweet, lighthearted tale of a piglet discovering where she belongs.”–Kirkus Reviews
This live, interactive virtual event will be hosted on Zoom. Library programs are created to encourage children to actively engage with stories. Download the scavenger hunt ahead of time here, and complete it as we read the story. Plan to join in, as you would do in one of our in-person events and participate in a virtual scavenger hunt as we Katelyn reads the story. We will keep microphones muted during the reading and art demonstration, then participating children will be encouraged to turn on their microphones and ask questions during the Q&A portion of the event.
About Katelyn Aronson: Katelyn grew up in a home where reading was more of a shared activity than a solo one. Her mother was a children’s literature lover; her father—a natural-born storyteller. TV wasn’t a big part of life. Make-believe was, and words were just another way of creating magic, together. One day, Katelyn realized voilà! She had a few stories of her own, ready to be shared. Find out more Katelyn Aronson and her work here.
