The Eric Carle Museum, Special Storytime

December 8 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Join Bweela Steptoe, daughter of author and illustrator John Steptoe at 11AM, for a storytime in the special exhibition Our Voice: Celebrating the Coretta Scott King Illustrator Awards. Steptoe was a model for several of her father’s books, including the Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award winner Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters, which she will read to guests in the gallery.

Join award-winning authors Jane Yolen and Heidi E. Y. Stemple at 2PM for this program all about birds! Jane will read from her new picture book Crow Not Crow, a gentle tale of a father introducing his daughter to the joys of bird watching; and Heidi will read from her new book Counting Birds, a beautifully illustrated non-fiction book about the Audubon Christmas Bird Count that introduces kids to the idea of citizen science. The program will include bird watching activities and owl calling!
