Second Sunday Stories: Christy Mihaly - Hey, Hey, Hey! (Sausalito Store)

Sunday, October 14, 2018 - 11:00am

In Hey, Hey, Hay!, a girl tells the tale of making hay as Mom uses a mower for mowing grass, then a tedder for aerating the grass, and eventually a baler. Told in rhyme and illustrated with fabulous art by JOE CEPEDA, each part of the process is a celebration of summer, farming, and the mother-daughter relationship. Back matter includes a glossary.

Christy Mihaly writes articles, stories, essays, and poems for children. Her juvenile nonfiction books have been published by Focus, Rosen, and National Geographic Kids.

Sandra V. Feder - Bitter & Sweet (Corte Madera Store)

Sunday, October 21, 2018 - 11:00am

Special Event for Kids

When Hannah's family has to move, her grandmother tells her how she felt leaving the old country -- it was both bitter and sweet. As Hannah leaves her friends behind and tries to get used to a new house, she only feels bitterness. Was her grandmother wrong about the sweetness?

Hannah starts to feel better about the move when she sees her new house in the soft light of the Shabbat candles. When a new friend reaches out with a special gift, Hannah realizes that sweetness can come from unexpected places and that she can even create some herself.

Featuring art by acclaimed illustrator Kyrsten Brooker, Bitter and Sweet subtly conveys a universal message -- while life can be full of challenging moments, sweeter ones can be found and created. An author's note is included on the concept of bitter and sweet in Jewish culture.

Sandra V. Feder is the author of The Moon Inside, illustrated by Aimée Sicuro, as well as the popular Daisy series of early chapter books. She tries to appreciate the sweet parts of life and hopes her stories bring joy to others. She lives in Burlingame, California.
