Kids’ Storytime With Blair Thornburgh & Kate Berube

August 15, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free
Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207

Author Blair Thornburgh and illustrator Kate Berube join us to present their new picture book, Second Banana (Abrams). The kids in Mrs. Millet’s class are putting on their annual nutrition pageant. Every kid plays a food. Every kid gets a line. It is a big deal. But this year, there aren’t quite enough parts for everybody. So the class is cast: Fish, Cheese, Broccoli, Blueberry, Banana, and… Second Banana. Second Banana feels rotten. She wants to be the ONLY banana! In their deliciously original school story, Thornburgh and Berube recognize the dreadful disappointment that a casting list can cause — as well as the power of friendship, creative thinking, and a good attitude to turn a rotten situation into one that’s quite ap-peel-ing. Showtime!
