BK: Storytime! Alfie with Thyra Heder

    02/11/2018 - 3:00pm

    This event takes place in our Brooklyn store.

    Join us at WORD for an afternoon storytime with ALFIE, with author Thyra Heder. 

    Nia loves Alfie, her pet turtle. But he’s not very soft, he doesn’t do tricks, and he’s pretty quiet. Sometimes she forgets he’s even there! That is until the night before Nia’s seventh birthday, when Alfie disappears! Then, in an innovative switch in point of view, we hear Alfie’s side of the story. He didn’t leave Nia—he’s actually searching for the perfect birthday present for his dear friend. Can he find a gift and make it back in time for the big birthday party?
