Author, Patricia Thomas Book Launch

Patricia Thomas 2The Carbondale Public Library will be hosting the national book launch of local children’s author Patricia Thomas’ new book, “Green Bean! Green Bean!” on Saturday, April 2, from 2-4 PM. Children and adults are invited to meet the author and enjoy an afternoon of activities, crafts, food and fun.

In “Green Bean! Green Bean!” a young gardener creates her own secret hideaway using a packet of seeds. Not only is this rhyming story fun, but it’s also educational. Children will be entertained by a story, but will also learn about the life cycle of plants.

Included at the end of the book are well-researched supplemental sections providing life cycle science, related vocabulary, information on gardening—and poetry—plus activities for children and parents or teachers.

A SPECIAL PREVIEW will take place at Freeplay and Storytime on Thursday, March 31st @ 11 AM.
