Storytime with Nan Forler

McNally RobinsonLast Saturday, Nan Forler and her family went to visit McNally Robinson Booksellers at Don Mills.

Signing TableThis was a special visit because Nan discussed, sang, read, and signed her debut picture book, Bird Child.

Here is a short clip where Nan brought out her guitar and taught the children a song.

Then, she read from Bird Child to show how Eliza helped Lainey get her own wings to fly.

Craft MaterialNan even came prepared with a craft! She brought in foam birds, ribbons, googly eyes, markers, glue, glitter, jewels, and feathers. The children made holiday bird ornaments.

Bird OrnamentHere is one of the glittery bird ornaments. This one is only half finished. The artist proceeded to add lots of pretty little jewels.

If you were not able to make it to the event, Nan did sign copies of Bird Child that will be available at McNally Robinson Booksellers on a first come, first serve basis. Thank you once again to Nicola and to the staff for making the event a success!
