Sunday, November 4
EAST BAY BOOKSELLERS welcomes Children's author and illustrator, Leslie Patricelli to read from her new board books and picture book Tooth, Big Kid Bed and Bigger! Bigger!, on Sunday, November 4th at 3pm.
Tooth: Ouch. Baby’s mouth feels funny. Something is happening, and it’s not just that a puddle of drool keeps escaping. There it is — a new tooth! And where there’s one, there are soon to be more. From discovering what’s good to bite (and what’s not) to mastering the art of the toothbrush, Baby’s dental adventure is sure to give little teething buddies something to chew on.
Big Kid Bed: Goodbye, crib. Hello, bed! Baby is happy to move on to the next phase of sleep furniture. There’s so much to do on a big, soft bed — lie on it, play on it, bounce on it! At bedtime, Daddy tucks Baby in, Mommy says good night, and there’s so much space, and the bed feels so . . . different. What now? Trepidation gives way to a good night’s sleep in a celebration of a familiar toddler ritual.
Bigger! Bigger!: A box of blocks. A budding builder. Should she build a doghouse? A bridge? A skyscraper? Yes, all of these and more! Bigger, bigger! BIGGEST! But then . . . Boom! Boom! What’s that? Uh-oh . . . After one little girl’s architectural masterpieces grow exponentially, the arrival of an assistant presents a bit of a challenge in this ode to creativity masterfully constructed by Leslie Patricelli.
