Spring is almost here...and not everyone is ready for it in a fun new book from local author Laura Gehl. Energetic, optimistic Peep is ready to play, but shy and hesitant Egg isn't so sure. Putting up a series of stalling tactics parents of young children may find very, very familiar, PEEP and EGG: I'm Not Hatching! is a sweet story about overcoming fears. My own children, ages six and four, love the cartoon-like drawings and Egg's determined refusals of Peep's fun plans.
Meet Peep and Egg in the book's trailer:
Locals can meet Laura Gehl and join in fun games and crafts related to the book on Saturday, March 12 at the Audubon Naturalist Society’s Woodend Nature Sanctuary.
Take a fun and engaging walk along the Woodend Nature Sanctuary trails, followed by a reading of PEEP and EGG: I'm Not Hatching! by Laura Gehl. After story time, Gehl will lead interactive games related to the book. Then make a "hatching" craft to take home, using materials collected on your walk! Copies of PEEP and EGG will be available for purchase; Laura will personalize and sign books at the end of the morning. Perfect for preschool and kindergarten aged children and their parents.
The event is part of the Itsy Bitsy Audubon series. Click here to preregister for the event, which is $5 per child. Preregistration is required for the event!
