Author Story Time: Christopher Silas Neal presents Lifetime: The Amazing Numbers in Animal Lives
Brooklyn artist Christopher Silas Neal is the illustrator of critically acclaimed books including Over and Under the Snow. In his beautiful new illustrated book Lifetime, young readers learn that in one lifetime, a caribou will shed 10 sets of antlers, a woodpecker will drill 30 roosting holes, a giraffe will wear 200 spots, and a seahorse will birth 1,000 babies. This extraordinary book collects animal information not available anywhere else—and shows all 30 holes, all 200 spots, and, yes!, all 1,000 baby seahorses in eye-catching illustrations. A book about picturing numbers and considering the endlessly fascinating lives all around us, Lifetime is sure to delight young nature lovers. Christopher reads from Lifetime and engages readers with drawings and interactive crafts at today’s story time. Ages 3 to 8.
