Join the Tivoli Free Library for a special story hour and craft with local illustrator, Hannah Barrett. Written by Mary Meriam, Nuts in Nutland, is a delightfully illustrated and joyful poetic adventure. It offers a message that emphasizes the importance of accepting differences and versed in playful rhymed couplets – reminiscent at moments of the verses to be found in Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland or of T.S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats in its wit and charm.

Hannah will lead a craft making nut crowns and jewelry after the story is read. Perfect for young children ages 4-7.
