Celebrating the Author's Book
There is no greater joy than to celebrate with our authors as their books are born and shared with children.
From book signings at small private preschools to large public schools, from shopping centers to bookstores, and from parks to museums, our authors have shared their beloved children's stories in fun and unique venues over the years and continue to do so.

Upcoming Events
