Special Children’s Storytime with Linda Ashman, William’s Winter Nap

Friday, April 5   |   10:30 am

It’s always a grand time when Linda Ashman shares her wonderful books with us at storytime. We will be celebrating the release of her latest book, William Wakes Up, the companion to her popular William’s Winter Nap.

William and his animal friends have had the whole winter to nap. Now it’s time for them to wake up and welcome a very special guest. There’s lots to do to get ready, from scrubbing the floors to decorating the house to baking a tasty treat. But it’s so hard to leave a cozy bed. . . . Will everyone get up in time to do their part? This book’s gentle rhymes and humorous illustrations full of signs of spring will make it a little easier to wait for the first warm days of the season.

Linda Ashman is the author of William’s Winter Nap, a companion to this book. Her more than thirty picture books have earned numerous honors and starred reviews, and have been included in the “Best of the Year” lists in the New York Times; Parenting,Child, and Cookie magazines; Bank Street College of Education; and the New York Public Library. She has taught a variety of workshops on writing for children and is the author of The Nuts and Bolts Guide to Writing Picture Books, a “how to” handbook. Linda lives with her family in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Visit her online at www.lindaashman.com.
