Press Release (ePRNews.com) - PHILADELPHIA - Jun 19, 2017 - Rittenhouse Barnes & Noble to Host Kid’s Event for New Arcadia Kids Book
Stop by Barnes & Noble to meet award-winning children’s author, Kate Jerome
The Rittenhouse Barnes & Noble will be hosting a kid’s event for Lucky to Live in Pennsylvania on Sunday, June 25th at 1:00 p.m.
Lucky to Live in Pennsylvania is both a storybook and a memory book. Read-aloud rhymes and fill-in-the-blank prompts are designed to capture a child’s story—customized to the state or region where the child lives. Left-hand pages set the stage for an interesting topic. Then the right-hand pages invite children to record their own views to create a personal history book. The book includes spreads that encourage conversations about favorite local cuisine (Philly Cheesesteak), interesting attractions (Penn’s Cave) and famous home-state people (Louisa May Alcott). Additional spreads cover everything from music appreciation and nature to favorite celebrations and goals. An end-of-book bonus activity invites kids to build their own personal time capsule keepsake. The real gift lies in the interactive nature of the book, as it offers the perfect opportunity for adults to share their own stories (and wisdom) about such issues as friendship, community, team spirit and other topics that are important to a child’s social and emotional development. By combining storytelling with local interest and information, the Lucky to Live in Pennsylvania READ TOGETHER/DO TOGETHER™ book is a picture-perfect tool to inspire meaningful conversations between kids and their favorite adults. Join us for a reading by author Kate Jerome and activities to follow!
