Join us at WORD Greenpoint for a special storytime featuring illustrator Josie Yee! Josie will be reading from the latest books in The Nocturnals series, followed by a special Draw A Character activity!
ABOUT THE BOOKS
The Kooky Kinkajou
Tobin, Bismark, and Dawn are bored. There's nothing to do! So when Karina the kinkajou comes along, she gives them a lesson on using their imaginations. Soon the three nocturnal friends are following Karina and the ‘sparkle sprite’ over rivers, under waterfalls, and to the end of a rainbow.
The Tasty Treat
In The Tasty Treat, Dawn the fox wakes up and goes looking for her friends, Tobin the pangolin and Bismark the sugar glider, to share a tasty treat—a pomelo! Using basic language, emerging readers are introduced to the Nocturnal Brigade.
