Bring your children in to meet the authors/illustrators Lane Smith and Bob Shea at 2 p.m.
Lane Smith will sign his new book Abe Lincoln's Dream which is a funny, touching tale about the legacy of America's greatest president. When a schoolgirl gets separated from her tour of the White House and finds herself in the Lincoln bedroom, she also discovers the ghost of the great man himself. Together they embark on a journey across the country to answer Lincoln's questions and quiet his concerns about the nation for which he gave his life. This wholly original tale is signature Lane Smith; Abe Lincoln's Dream is funny, touching, and surprising in a way only possible from this master picture book creator.
"An adroit blend of humor, compassion and quiet optimism reflects the statesman's character and make this a first choice for February or anytime."--"Kirkus"
Bob Shea will sign copies of Dinosaur Vs. Santa.
Dinosaur is getting ready for Santa! He tackles many challenges--decorating, making presents for Mom and Dad, trying not to be naughty--and defeats each one with his trademark ROAR! But on Christmas Eve, when he hears some rustling downstairs, he can't resist a peek. Will our feisty red friend meet his match in the man in the red suit? Complete with sparkly silver foil on the front cover and a removable letter to Santa for little ones to personalize, this funny and sweet book is a must-have for the holiday season.
