Each year we rejoice in honoring Children’s literature that has inspired us. This year we pay homage to the quilting art of Bisa Butler. Design your own framed quilt as a metaphor for the interwoven fabric of a community. Tell the story of children’s dreams being nurtured and their hopes becoming a reality. Make an illuminating lightning bug and venture into the world of nocturnal forest creatures and the discarded treasures they find. Then lend yourself to what a cat sees and wonders as it peers through your window.

A day of seeing the world through the eyes of another, whether a cat, a bug or a neighbor.

Dream Street by Tricia Elam Walker & Ekua Holmes, Anne Schwartz Books
It Fell From the Sky by The Fan Brothers, Simon and Schuster
Inside Cat by Brenden Wenzel, Chronicle Books
