Kids Activities: Celebrate with Dr. Seuss and Llama Llama! (both stores)
We’re celebrating children’s book icons Dr. Seuss and Llama Llama all day long at our kids activity stations on Independent Bookstore Day! Kids can get Llama Llama stickers and coloring sheets celebrating his adventures, in anticipation of the new book, Llama Llama Loves to Read, to be published May 2. And we’re having a Seuss-A-Bration with Dr. Seuss activities and temporary tattoos, too!
Special Community Story Time with Maisy (both stores)
Greenlight has invited Brooklyn community leaders to lead a special story time at each store, featuring the new picture book Maisy Goes to the Local Booktore. Celebrate bookstores and local businesses in Brooklyn with a chance to meet our local elected officials and community leaders! Details to be announced.
Artist Table: Drawings on Demand (Prospect Lefferts Gardens):
Our favorite children’s illustrators, cartoonists, and authors hold court at the Artist Table throughout the day, where you can ask for a drawing of your favorite character, a portrait of yourself, or whatever your imagination (and the artist’s) can come up with! Check back for a schedule of featured artists.
