If bedtime makes your family nuts, then you'll want to attend Eric Litwin's pajama party at the St. Louis County Library at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 1. Litwin, author of several "Pete the Cat" books, will introduce his new picture book, "The Nuts: Bedtime at the Nuthouse."
Wear your pajamas for this special evening of music, dancing and storytelling. In addition to performing a number of his much-loved children's songs, attendees will get to know the Nut family. In Litwin's latest book, it's bedtime at the Nut House, but Hazel and Wally Nut aren't ready to settle down just yet. Instead they're bouncing, wiggling, and howling at the moon, and it's up to Mama Nut to guide and wrangle her lovable and rambunctious little ones into bed. Litwin's use of repetition, call-and-response, and clever rhyme offers an interactive reading experience that invites readers young and old to join in and have fun.
Copies of the author's books will be for sale at the event from Barnes & Noble. The program is free and open to the public.
