Author Story Time: Madeline Valentine presents Bad Birthday Idea
Brooklyn-born illustrator Madeline Valentine makes her debut as an author with her new book Bad Birthday Idea, a warm and funny portrayal of sibling dynamics. Ben’s little sister Alice asks for a robot for her birthday. Not just any robot – the exact robot Ben has been wanting forever! Ben wants that robot. Now. Maybe he could sneak it out of its wrapping during Alice’s birthday party and play with it for a while. Nobody will know. Right? But Ben’s bad idea goes very wrong and he feels terrible. Now it’s up to him to show Alice that a sister is more important than even the best robot toy in the world. Madeline reads and draws at story time today, as well as leading an interactive craft activity. Ages 3 to 8.
