The Friends of the Hudson Area Library is pleased to announce that award-winning children’s author, Jennifer Berne will be signing her two new books for young readers at 217 Warren Street for Winter Walk on Saturday, December 7th from 5-8pm.
Chosen by the Friends as this year’s Winter Walk offering to encourage a love of reading in children of all ages, both of these delightful titles make perfect gifts for the holidays this season. All proceeds from purchases that evening will go towards funding new books and other media for the Hudson Area Library’s collection.
Nighty-Night, Sleep Tight is written for very young children, ages one to five and tells a poetic story of the animal kingdom going to sleep at night, written in rhyming verse. As an added bonus, there will be a large selection of plush animals from the book available for purchase that evening.
On a Beam of Light: The Story of Albert Einstein is the richly imagined and beautifully told and illustrated true story of Einstein for school age children. This remarkable story tells of a curious little boy who wanted to understand the mysterious magic behind things, the hidden secrets of our world, and who, by wondering, imagining and figuring, grew up to discover amazing things about our universe that no one had ever known before. An award winning book, this is one every child should read!
Jennifer Berne is the author of two other award-winning children’s books. Manfish: A Story of Jacques Cousteau and Calvin Can’t Fly: The Story of a Bookworm Birdie have both won numerous awards and have been published in seven languages. On a Beam of Light has already broken the record for the most starred reviews of any Chronicle Children’s Book, as well as being a New York Times Editor’s Choice, London Times Children’s Book of the Week, School Library Journal “Best Books of 2013,” “Best Children’s Book of the Year” from Kirkus Reviews, and six other starred reviews.
