Fun and educational events for the whole family

Mordicai Gerstein at Fractured Fables

Event date: 
Sunday, September 15, 2013 - 1:00pm
 

Mordicai Gerstein, Caldecott Medal-winning author, artist and filmmaker, comes to Bank Street Bookstore to read his latest outstanding children's books. 

Mordicai will appear as a special guest author at the Fractured Fables puppet show on Sunday, September 15, to share How To Bicycle to the Moon to Plant Sunflowers: A Simple but Brilliant Plan in 24 Easy Steps, and The First Drawing. 

Have you ever wondered how to start a moon garden? You'll need a bicycle, a very long garden hose, a borrowed spacesuit and a very large slingshot. In How To Bicycle to the Moon to Plant Sunflowers: A Simple but Brilliant Plan in 24 Easy Steps, kids ages 6-8 will be treated to whimsical step-by-step instructions, illustrated with comic-style panels that cover every detail of the trip from planning to homecoming.   
 

Who drew the first picture? In Mordicai Gerstein's The First Drawing, the primeval artist is… well, you! Children ages 3-6 are invited to imagine themselves transported back in time, where if you want to amaze your caveman family with your artistic communication skills, it's a simple matter of grabbing a burnt stick. Voilá- it's a piece of cake! 

In addition to reading his latest books, Mordicai has promised to sing-- perhaps in a puppet duet-- the Cream of Wheat jingle from radio's legendary Let's Pretend fairytale show!   


Registration is recommended. Please call Bank Street Bookstore at 212-678-1654 or join the Mordicai Gerstein Fractured Fables Facebook event page.

Twice as Nice: Wendy Mass and Suzanne Selfors at Bank Street Bookstore

Event date: 
Thursday, September 19, 2013 - 4:30pm
You won't want to miss the dynamic author duo of Wendy Mass (Pi In The Sky) and Suzanne Selfors (The Sasquatch Escape: The Imaginary Veterinary). Mass and Selfors are a twice-as-nice combo bringing you double the fun with their two exciting new novels for kids.


Pi In The Sky by Wendy Mass chronicles the adventures of Joss, the seventh son of the Supreme Overlord of the Universe. Joss' not-so-great job is delivering pies which hold the secrets of the universe. But when Earth suddenly disappears, Joss must figure out how to bring it back, with the help of  Annika, an outspoken Earth-girl.
In Suzanne Selfors' The Sasquatch Escape: The Imaginary Veterinary young Ben Silverstein and Pearl Petal find a wounded baby dragon, and take it to the only veterinarian in town. Dr. Woo's Worm Hospital turns out to be a secret refuge for imaginary creatures, and when a rather large, rather stinky and very hairy creature escapes, the two children set out in search of the runaway Sasquatch.
