What a wonderful time we had celebrating National Picture Book Week! We hope you had fun, too! Here are just a few thoughts looking back and forward.
LITTLE BEAR’S S. FLORIDA EVENT
Little Bear (with a little help from his friends) hosted a special event in South Florida at the Stirling Road Library in Hollywood! We had some scheduled readers, and everyone there was invited to read and also welcome to simply listen and enjoy. Judy Cooper, the “fun art professor,” attended and joined in the reading, as well as parents, grandparents, kids, and even Little Bear! (Little Bear read "Snoozers" with Jeff Novick and also joined in on our round-robin reading of "The Cat in the Hat"!)
A SPECIAL THANKS TO OUR FRIEND, TOM
Our photographer friend, Tom Olsen, donated his time and talent to help us preserve these special memories and create our event album. If you’re in S. Florida and looking for a great photographer, we ♥ Tom Olsen of Cre8me, Photographic Solutions by Olsen & Reinfeld Photographers.
