Story Time: Ian Lendler & Mark Pett present Nia and the New Free Library
Author Ian Lendler and illustrator Mark Pett join Greenlight for a Saturday story time featuring their new book, Nia and the New Free Library! This picture book tells the story of one girl who reminds an entire town of the joy of books. When the town's old library is destroyed by a tornado, the people are left wondering: What should they do with the space where the library used to be? Everyone in town wants different things: the builder wants there to be a new skyscraper, the grocer wants a new parking lot, but Nia just wants a new library . . . but how can one person build a whole library? Sometimes the biggest things can start with almost nothing at all. Join Lendler and Pett for a story time full of humor and heart as they share this clever twist on the classic "Stone Soup" folktale. Ages 3 to 8.
