ONLINE: Bedtime Story with the Author: Rebecca Evans reads "If You Ever Meet a Skeleton"
Kids, don your jammies and join us for a Bedtime Story with the author herself! Just in time for Halloween, Rebecca Evans reads her new picture book, If You Ever Meet a Skeleton.
ABOUT THE BOOK
A fun, spooky rhyming tale about a not-so-scary skeleton who just wants a friend.
Skeletons might seem frightening, but if you look closer, there’s nothing much to fear. They can’t run fast, they’re terrible at hide-and-seek, and they’re scared of everything. When a group of trick-or-treaters runs into an actual skeleton on an enchanted Halloween night, they do whatever they can get away. But what does the skeleton really want? What if they’re just looking for a friend?
With distinctive, quirky illustrations and humorous rhyming text, this book invites you to find out whether this bag of bones is a trick or a treat!
