Tonya Lippert: Goodbye School

Franny loves her school. She’s played, read, studied, and even napped here. Franny has lots of good memories there. But today it’s time to leave. As Franny prepares to move to a new school, she takes time to reminisce and cherish her old school. She wants to find a way to honor this special place. How can Franny say goodbye? Includes a Reader’s Note by the author with information on how to guide children through periods of transition or change and acknowledge their feelings throughout the experience.

Join us on Saturday, July 6 at 1:00 PM as we welcome local author Tonya Lippert  with a very special storytime and signing of her book GOODBYE SCHOOL.
