Imagination Friday with Philip and Erin Stead

December 10, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 1:40 pm

Meet Erin and Phil Stead as they introduce a new picturebook about a beloved zookeeper in Amos McGee Misses the Bus. We first met Amos McGee in A Sick Day for Amos McGee, a Caldecott Medal book, and in the new book, Amos faces all kinds of problems when he plans an outing for his zoo animals.

Erin and Phil will share their new book and process of writing and illustrating, invite children to create their own stories, and answer questions.
