Join author and Cape Elizabeth resident, Sandy Shapiro Hurt, for a special story time featuring her newly published picture book, Sylvia Rose and the Cherry Tree!
When bold, adventurous Sylvia Rose comes dancing through the forest, the woodland creatures just have to dance too. Enchanted, they beg her to come back every day. But the lovely, heartbroken cherry tree is too deeply rooted to dance, much less to fulfill her dream of seeing the wide world beyond the forest. Determined to help, Sylvia Rose enlists the animals to uproot the glorious tree, and the girl and the tree set off globetrotting together, seeing the wonders of the world from the Eiffel Tower to the Sydney Opera House. Back home in the forest, however, the animals suffer without the food and shelter of their life-sustaining tree.
Will the tree give up her newfound freedom and return to her place in the forest ecosystem?
Find out at this special story time for ages 3 and up!
Saturday, March 31
3:00 – 4:00 p.m.
The program will be followed by book sales and signing.
