Join us in the Readings Gallery for a live author event for families! Beloved regional author Nina Laden is back to present her beautiful new picture book, Dear Little One. Seating is limited so reserve your spot today!
COVID protocol for our in-person events requires masks for all attendees and proof of full vaccination (with the exception of children under 12) upon arrival. Thank you for your cooperation.
Celebrate the wonder of the world in this reassuring picture book about the joy, love, and beauty found in each and every day.
From the treasure of flowers to the mystery of insects, this lyrical book encourages children to explore the natural world around them and to be grateful for all that surrounds them. With jewel-like artwork by Melissa Castrillon, every page is a treasure for children just born or exploring the world full of possibilities we all share. Dear Little One is a love letter to the reader from Mother Nature.
“Laden and Castrillon have paired to create a lush, visually stunning ode to beauty of nature.”- School Library Journal Starred Review
