Special Storytime: Jane Yolen and Rilla Alexander

March 10, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

In A Bear Sat on My Porch Today, a bear is one of many critters who take over the porch in a hilarious cumulative yarn from author Jane Yolen. Chant along with the protagonist as her porch fills up with a bear, a squirrel, a skunk, a possum, a raccoon, a moose, and more! Yolen’s fun text and charming illustrations by Rilla Alexander work together to convey a relatable story of reluctant hospitality-and the unexpected delight that can come from letting others onto your porch. Come join us as we celebrate Jane Yolen’s 365th book of her career!
