See and Hear "The Green Umbrella" Read by Author Jackie Azua Kramer

Imagine a green umbrella, then imagine what else it might be, which is exactly what author Jackie Azua Kramer did when creating her book "The Green Umbrella." Elephant and his most imaginative friends think, "Perhaps it could be a boat," "Or a tent," "Or a flying machine." Young readers will wonder, "Are these suggestions possible?" After all, perhaps the green umbrella has seen far more exciting adventures than just a simple walk in the rain. Enjoy story time at Bank Street Book Store with the author on Saturday, February 25 at 10:30 a.m. and take home a signed copy of this delightful book, a wonderful way to welcome spring.

"Good Morning, City" by NY1's Pat Kiernan

Wake up to great news! NY1's morning anchor Pat Kiernan has written a children's book for families across the city -- and around the world. "Good Morning, City," illustrated by Pascal Campion, is a delightful way to learn about how a bustling metropolis awakens each day -- from the busy baker to the ferry boat captain to the early news reporter (like Pat!). Pat reads and signs his book on Saturday, December 3 at 10:30 a.m. at Bank Street College, 610 West 112th Street. The event is sponsored by Bank Street Book Store and the New York Foundling, one of the city's oldest and largest children's charities.

Thoroughly Thankfully Talented

Authors and illustrators gathered at Bank Street Book Store on Saturday, November 26 to read, sign, and share during Indies First, a celebration of children's books. These fellow bookworms were as generous with their time as they are with their talent, and we had a terrific time hosting them. Here's a group photo of everyone (basically from left to right): Eric Velasquez, Dan Gutman, Ame Dyckman, Vin Vogel, Leslie Martini, Jessica Olien, Emily Arnold McCully, Julie Fogliano, Beth Ferry, Steve Light, and George O'Connor. Thank you, friends -- and keep up the great work!
