Left Bank Books
Left Bank Books welcomes St. Louis illustrator Daniel Wiseman for a special Children's Book Week Celebrity Storytime reading of his new books, Baby Astronaut and Baby Oceanographer!
Baby Scientist is here! A vibrant original board book series that shows a diverse cast of toddlers as little scientists. First up is Baby Astronaut! Simple, exciting, and engaging—this is a perfect preschool introduction to the study of space exploration. She flies way up high into space. She wears a space suit, climbs into her space shuttle, and works in the space station on her experiments. Next up is Baby Oceanographer, a clever, young introduction to the study of ocean life. He studies the ocean and what’s in it. He’s driving around in a submersible, wearing a snorkel and scuba diving suit—seeing life under the sea. There are fish and plants and volcanoes under the water, plenty to see and study.
Children's Book Week is the annual celebration of books for young people and the joy of reading. Established in 1919, Children's Book Week is the longest-running national literacy initiative in the country. Every year, events are held nationwide at schools, libraries, bookstores, homes -- wherever young readers and books are connected! The 100th anniversary of Children's Book Week will take place all year long with a dedicated week of celebrations April 29th - May 5th, and another week this fall, November 4th - 10th!
