Story Time: Ruth Chan presents The Alpactory

Greenlight is thrilled to host beloved Brooklyn author-illustrator Ruth Chan for her funny and inspiring new picture book, The Alpactory! Whether it’s the first day of school, a sleepover, or a camping trip, new experiences can be scary. It never seems like you’ll be 100% ready. Well, have no fear! The Alpactory is here! These alpacas in their wacky factory help little ones get ready for any new adventure. In this fresh, contemporary take on Oh, The Places You’ll Go!, the catchy infomercial-inspired voice matched with Chan’s hilarious illustrations will have readers laughing along and feeling prepared for anything. Join Chan for a silly and sweet story time that will help readers get ready for any new experience ahead!

Video Series for Kids

For connecting with children's book authors while learning remotely, check out our video interview series made just for kids! In Authors Spill the Beans, Greenlight Bookseller Ben Hoffman sits down (virtually!) with authors writing for middle graders—it's a great resource for parents and teachers to share with their students, and includes writing tips and insights for being creative while stuck at home (plus some silly clips and sound effects for kids too!).
