Gather around, everyone! Japanese children’s author Taro Gomi’s notoriously giggle-inducing best-known book, Everyone Poops, has been charming and comforting kids for decades, But do you know his other work? This author and illustrator is a gouache genius with a gentle and humorous voice. He is also incredibly prolific, so with over 350 titles to his credit, it’s only slightly surprising that he has a hilarious holiday book! Presents Through The Window, a tale of shortcuts, goofed gifts, and mistaken identity was re-editioned in 2016 through Chronicle Books from the 1980s translation. Come join us in the kids’ section for a special weekend storytime.
*Special note for parents: As usual, we’ll have related extra books on hand in case you are looking for other excellent picture books we recommend! Particular emphasis is placed on striking illustrations, great graphic design or standout writing. Titles may be brand new, old treasures, from home, our Kids’ Section or the library, but they are always picked with love and a sense of adventure. If there’s a book you’d love, consider our ordering service!
It’ll be about a 45 minute read with something fun for the kids–that’s going to be interesting, we can’t wait to see what they come up with.
All ages are welcome.
On Sunday mornings, bring your kids and infuse them with a love of reading.
