Children’s Author Visit

Tuesday, April 19th at 9:00 am

The Library will be hosting Stephen R. Swinburne author of the children’s book Whose Shoes? A Shoe for Every Job on Tuesday, April, 19th at 9 am.  Please arrive a few minutes early so that the programs may start on time.

Stephen R. Swinburne is the author of over 25 children’s books many of which are about wildlife.  Whose Shoes? has been chosen as this year’s book for Pennsylvania’s One Book, Every Young Child program. 

What do you want to be when you grow up? People work in various jobs. Very often, clothes fit the job. The right shoes, for example, can make a job easier or safer. Stephen Swinburne explores various occupations through a simple, lively text and bright, colorful photographs. The book includes a guessing game that invites young readers to guess which shoe matches which job. This engaging book offers a unique way of asking children what they want to be when they grow up. 

For the sixth consecutive year, the “PA One Book” program will lead the way and highlight the importance of early literacy development in preschoolers ages 3 to 6.  Through this program, adults with preschoolers in their lives will learn how they can support the development of literacy in preschool children.
