Virtual Nordic Stories: Good Night Earth
Jun 03, 2021
10:00am - 10:30am PST

Join us for story time and craft with our special guest, children's librarian Sara Jensen. We will listen to the brand new story, Good Night Earth, by Finnish author and artist Linda Bondestam.

An alien family on a faraway planet has a one-of-a-kind bedtime routine: spying on the bedtime routines of other animal families on planet Earth, in this captivating picture book from celebrated Nordic illustrator Linda Bondestam.

Little chimp needs his mama to play at least seventy-three songs on the ukulele to fall asleep. A meerkat family enjoys some stretches together as the sun goes down, while baby sloth is a bedtime expert—she’s already snoozing soundly in the trees. With unconventional illustrations full of wit and tenderness, Good Night Earth is a sweetly silly exploration of how all kinds of creatures find peaceful and playful ways to end the day.

After the story, Sara will teach kids how to make a craft with items found at home.

Sara brings her imaginative story time skills from 20 years of experience as a librarian in public libraries hosting events for children and families. She connects creativity with books and reading to inspire people (small and big) be curious, learn and grow. Her story time channel can be found at https://www.crowdcast.io/misssaralibrarian

Cost: Free; RSVP required. A link to the story time will be sent to you closer to the event date.
