We kick off this year's "StoryTime with Simonds" with
acclaimed NH children's author
Mary Lyn Ray!
Thursday, November 1 at 3:15 pm
We are having a party for her just released book
The Thank You Book
Perfect for fans of Margaret Wise Brown and Pat Zietlow Miller’s Be Kind, The Thank You Book explores the many ways of being thankful that can fill a child's day. Timely, wise, and accessible, the poetic text and tender illustrations celebrate the powerful impact gratitude can have on our lives.
Thank you isn't just for learning manners.
It's also for when something wakes a
little hum—a little happy hum—inside you
and you want to answer back.
The Thank You Book explores the many ways we can be thankful for the pleasures great and small that await us every day. Tender and poetic, it reflects on the role gratitude can play in our lives and celebrates the powerful impact it can have on us.
Mary Lyn will read this delightful book, and show us the mock-up for her upcoming companion book,
The Friendship Book.
Mary Lyn Ray has written many acclaimed books for children, including Go to Sleep, Little Farm, illustrated by Christopher Silas Neal; New York Times best-seller Stars, illustrated by Marla Frazee and The Thank You Book, illustrated by Stephanie Graegin. She lives in South Danbury, New Hampshire.
Please join us for this special event, and join us throughout the year for
"StoryTime with Simonds"
the first Thursday of each month from 3:15 pm to 3:45 pm in The Gallery!
