Description

A very special storytime with Michelle Schaub, author of Finding Treasure and Fresh-Picked Poetry. Join in the fun of learning how to find treasure in unexpected places and poetry at the farmer’s market!

At 57th Street Books

About Finding Treasure: My teacher gave us homework that has me quite perplexed. He asked us all to bring to class something we collect. A fun assignment, but what if you don’t collect anything? Family members, friends, and neighbors all have collections of their own. Is there time to start a collection? Or find an abandoned one in the attic? Sometimes the treasure you’re seeking is right in front of you. Join the hunt for a collection in this story told through poems!

About Fresh-Picked Poetry: Spend a day at the farmers' market with food, fun, and a fresh harvest. Through eighteen lively poems, follow the adventures of two new friends and their canine companions as they discover how much there is to love at the market.
