Get ready for storytime fun at your local B&N this September! Here’s an overview of upcoming weekend events.
Saturday, September 7th at 11am: Dr. Seuss’s Horse Museum, by Dr. Seuss
(Millionth Storytime Event Part I)
We’ll be reading Dr. Seuss’s Horse Museum, a never before published work from a legendary children’s author that explores art, creativity, and perspective. As young readers visit a fantastical museum with a horse as their guide, they’re encouraged to examine artwork by a host of influential artists, from Calder to Picasso. They’ll consider the ways in which different artists can depict the same thing in very different ways. This playful book features cameos from some of our favorite Dr. Seuss characters, including the Cat in the Hat, and Horton the Elephant! There’ll be a fun horse standee for photo ops, along with mini sketchpads and crayon packs, and the opportunity to get a free book, while supplies last.
Sunday, September 8th at 11am: Hey Grandude!, by Paul McCartney
(Special Sunday Storytime for the Millionth Storytime Event Part II)
To celebrate Grandparents’ Day, we’ll be reading Paul McCartney’s Hey Grandude! This rollicking tale introduces a fun-loving grandfather who takes his four grandchildren on exciting adventures that span the globe. From dodging avalanches, to riding flying fish, this story takes readers on a delightful romp filled with illustrations that children will love exploring. The whole family is welcome to attend this Storytime, which encourages a celebration of the bonds between generations. There will be a postcard activity sheet and stickers, and the opportunity to get a free book, while supplies last.
Saturday, September 14th at 11am: Pete the Cat and the Perfect Pizza Party, by James Dean
Everyone’s favorite cool cat is excited to have a pizza party and to cover his pizza in his preferred topping: pepperoni!

Find out, when we read Pete the Cat and the Perfect Pizza Party!

Saturday, September 28 at 11am: How I Met My Monster, by Amanda Noll
A ragtag collection of monsters compete to scare Ethan back into bed in the hilarious prequel to I Need My Monster and Hey, That’s MY Monster. Only Gabe, the little green monster, has what it takes (meaning, the proper drooling and snorting ratio) to gently frighten Ethan into dreamland.
Hope to see you at Storytime this September!
