JC: Valentine’s Day Children’s Special Event with ANIMALS SPELL LOVE author David Cundy

    02/04/2017 - 11:00am

    This event takes place at WORD Jersey City

    Join us for a special edition of our Saturday storytime with author David Cundy reading his book, ANIMALS SPELL LOVE.

    Expressions of love have occurred throughout the ages in innumerable varieties. Sonnets, soliloquies, songs; 'countless ways' is the true answer to Elizabeth Barrett Browning's question How do I love thee? Often, the simplest answer is best, use the word itself: Love. In Animals Spell Love, gorgeously written and designed by David Cundy, sixteen critters from the farthest reaches of the animal kingdom help readers of all ages learn how to express the word in sixteen languages from around the globe, from Czech to Amharic to Korean, and even including American Sign Language. Children and adults will delight in the way Cundy shapes the letters into animals, and his brief primers, complete with pronunciation guide for every incarnation, will help readers more fully appreciate, indulge in, and understand the languages of love.

    RSVPs encouraged but not required.
