Katie Yamasaki presents Dad Bakes!

Join Greenlight’s beloved neighbor, muralist, and children’s book author Katie Yamasaki for a special, interactive Saturday story time featuring her forthcoming picture book, Dad Bakes. Inspired by her work with formerly incarcerated men, Dad Bakes tells a tender story about family, unconditional love, and second chances. Dad wakes early every morning before the sun, heading off to work at the bakery, where he kneads, rolls, and bakes. As the sun rises and the world starts its day, Dad heads home to his young daughter. Together they play, read, garden, and—most importantly—they bake. Yamasaki presents a slideshow and art activity, and shares free, downloadable coloring sheets with all participants! Ages 3 to 8.

Katie Yamasaki’s newest picture book is an intimate and tender story of the love between a father and a daughter.

Dad wakes early every morning before the sun, heading off to work at the bakery. He kneads, rolls, and bakes, and as the sun rises and the world starts its day, Dad heads home to his young daughter. Together they play, read, garden, and—most importantly—they bake.
