Storytime: I Got a New Friend

Sat, Nov 11, 2017 from 11:10 am - 11:40 pm PST
1119 SW Park Ave Portland, OR 97205

A sweet introduction to owning a pet that is perfect for readers of The Most Magnificent Thing and A Ball for Daisy.
 
When a little girl gets a new puppy, they have a lot to learn about each other. The new friends can be shy, messy, and sometimes get into trouble. They get lost, but they always get found. Their friendship may be a lot of work—but at the end of the day, they love each other! 
 
Experience the excitement and mystery surrounding a new pet (and a new friend) in this joyful picture book from acclaimed author and illustrator Karl Newsom Edwards.

Wordstock admission is FREE for attendees 17 years of age and younger.
