Meet Nandana Dev Sen and hear her read "Kangaroo Kisses" at Bank Street Book Store on Saturday, June 3 at 10:30 a.m. Bedtime rituals vary from creature to creature as a reluctantly sleepy young child learns when it's time to say goodnight. Although the main character loves imagining an elephant brush and floss, and a bear comb and curl, she is not quite so willing to settle into her own end-of-day routine. Finally, a last kiss does the trick and it's lights out until another new day begins for a girl and her animal friends. Nandana will read and sign so join us for a special Saturday story.
