On April 14th from 3-5PM, Little Island is thrilled to welcome artist Claudia Davila to the store to help celebrate the launch of her book with writer Mya Thompson, RUBY’S BIRDS!
“Meet Ruby, a plucky young girl who uncovers the wild side of her city neighborhood with the help of a grown-up friend. When Ruby realizes there are amazing birds right in her neighborhood, her imagination takes flight. Birders have a name for the moment they get hooked, they call it their spark moment. This is the story of Ruby’s spark moment―in her very own words.
This delightful story includes a seek and find element with birds hiding on nearly every page. Information about where to find all of the birds in real life follows, plus Ruby’s tips for taking a nature walk, and how to connect with Celebrate Urban Birds, a citizen-science project at the Cornell Lab.”
This event will take place from 3-5PM with colouring pages, a chance to meet the artist and of course an opportunity to get your brand-new copy of RUBY’s BIRDS signed! See you there!
