Author Storytime with Sarah Sullivan for A Day For Skating

Join us for a children's author storytime with Sarah Sullivan and her book A Day for Skating! We'll have hot cocoa and you can go across the street after the event for skating! 


In a sweet rhyming tale, a young child’s first skating adventure on a frozen pond ends with a cozy bedtime story.

Tap and step,
then slide and turn.
Whoops! Fall down.
That’s how we learn.

On a brisk winter’s day, the frozen pond is crisscrossed by figure skaters, hockey players, new skaters, and old pros, all gliding across the ice. It’s time to bundle up, lace your skates, and give it a try — then head inside for cocoa and snacks when your cheeks grow rosy and your toes are cold. Back at home, warm bedtime rituals make for the end of a perfect day. But when darkness falls at the pond, who will come out to skate?
