Mordicai Gerstein at Fractured Fables
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!
