The local nonprofit will be giving away free books at three locations in and around town: The Book Nook, 294 Northwest 2nd Avenue; Swan Island Dahlias, 995 Northwest 22nd Avenue; and the Canby Public Library, 220 Northeast 2nd Avenue.
Two titles will be available: A Frog in the Bog for preschool-age through 8 years old, and Where the Mountain Meets the Moon by Grace Lin for ages 8 to 11.
Written by Karma Wilson and illustrated by Joan Rankin, A Frog in the Bog is a lyrical and playful read-aloud from the author of New York Times bestseller Bear Snores On.
Rhythmic, humorous and educational (the story teaches children to count from one to five), A Frog in the Bog is the perfect story for young and soon-to-be readers.
In Where the Mountain Meets the Moon, Grace Lin, author of the beloved Year of the Dog and Year of the Rat, returns with a wondrous story of adventure, faith and friendship.
A fantasy crossed with Chinese folklore, Where the Mountain Meets the Moon is a timeless story reminiscent of The Wizard of Oz and Kelly Barnhill’s The Girl Who Drank the Moon. Her beautiful illustrations, printed in full-color, accompany the text throughout.
Where the Mountain Meets the Moon is a charming, engaging book for young readers.
Books will be available starting December 6. No purchase necessary but supplies are limited.
