Fall Festival with Author Leslie Helakoski

 

Saturday, September 22                   

Featuring author Leslie Helakoski!

 

 Storytime on the Bluff at 11:30 AM

 Storytime and activity at Forever Books at 1:00 PM

 Hear the story, Ready or Not, Woolbur Goes to School, read by the author!

 

 The free-spirited, fluffy, one-of-a-kind sheep Woolbur is on his way to school, and he’s MORE than ready…

But Maa and Paa aren’t so sure. What if Woolbur isn’t exactly ready for school?

He’s different. He’s unusual. And his new hairdo is kooky!

At school, Woolbur loves trying new things like drawing outside of the lines and eating grass. (No wonder his parents were worried!)

The rest of his classmates are nervous about their first day and aren’t excited about trying anything new. Will Woolbur’s excitement help show his friends that doing something different, or unusual, or kooky is the best way to get ready for school?

This charming yet spunky follow-up to the beloved Woolbur is the perfect gift for children who march to the beat of their own drum or anyone who needs a little encouragement on their first day of school.

 Leslie Helakoski is the author of the Big Chickens series as well as Woolbur and Woolbur Goes to School. She has written and illustrated Fair CowBig PigsDoggone Feet, and Hoot and Honk Just Can’t Sleep. She lives in Michigan with her family. Visit her online at www.helakoskibooks.com.
