Thank you, Lynette of PicPocketBooks.com for this wonderful write up of my day at the Coastal Branch Library, Santa Rosa Beach, South Walton, Florida.
A Cool Way to Beat the Summer Heat
I don’t know about your corner of the world, but here in Washington, DC we’re having long, hot days! A visit to your local cool, quiet library is a great way to to beat the summer heat.
That's how big a polar bear's foot is!
One of our PicPocket Books authors, Gina Ricci (author and illustrator of Far to the North and Splish! Splash! Splosh!), recently gave a talk and led kids through some art projects at the Summer Reading Program at the Coastal Library in South Walton Beach, Florida. Polar bears were the stars of the day as the kids donned polar bear masks, drew an arctic mural, listened to the Far to the North iPad storybook app, AND topped it all off with ice cream. Sounds like a fantastic summer day.
