Red Balloon Bookshop invites you to a special back-to-school storytime party in honor of local author/illustrator Mike Wohnoutka and his new book, So Big!. This little bear is SO BIG! He can get dressed, make cereal for breakfast, and pack his backpack—all by himself. In fact, he’s so big that he’s ready for his first day of school...until he sees how big the bus AND the school are. Just when it all feels like too much, this little bear meets a new friend and together they find courage big enough to push past their fear. Join Mike for a reading, drawing demo, celebratory treats, and book signing!
All are welcome at this storytime and author signing event, which will be best appreciated by kids 2 and up.
Mike Wohnoutka is the author and illustrator of Croc and Turtle and Dad’s First Day, and the illustrator of many books including Moo! which received two starred reviews and was chosen as an ALA Notable book and by the Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books as a Blue Ribbon selection. A graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design, Mike lives with his wife and two children in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
