Children and their grown-ups are invited to a special StoryTime with children's author Sandra Nickel, co-hosted by Harvey County Parents as Teachers. Nickel will read her new book, "Big Bear and Little Fish." Snacks and an activity will also be provided.
This event will be in-person only. Registration is not required.
About the Book:
BEAR LOVES BEING BIG. At the carnival, she wants to win a teddy bear as big as she is. Instead, she wins a fish. A very little fish. Bear is so very big and Fish is so very small that Bear worries they have nothing in common. Can they possibly be friends?
Gentle, accessible prose by Sandra Nickel is paired with richly textured illustrations by Il Sung Na in this sweet story about accepting others for who they are.
