Story Time: Kate Samworth presents Grand Isle

Artist Kate Samworth comes to Greenlight (virtually!) to share her gorgeous new wordless picture book, Grand Isle! When two sisters wander the shore on their family beach outing in search of seashells, smooth pebbles, and other sandy treasures, they discover a gigantic seed pod large enough to hold them afloat. Unable to resist, they climb aboard, and before they know it are swept across the ocean to a mysterious island populated by marvelous vegetation and outsized insects. As they explore, their vessel is carried back out to sea, and they are stranded on the grand isle. Curiosity has led them far from home and only an act of daring and resourcefulness will bring them back. Samworth combines the natural with the surreal in harmonious colors to create a landscape that promises new discoveries on each visit. Join Samworth for a wordless adventure through a richly imagined land at this virtual Saturday story time, featuring a flower making project using found materials. All you need is paper of any kind, scissors, and tape or glue! Ages 3 to 8.
