The event took place during a regular Friday arts and crafts program held at the library. In addition, all children attending the event left with a free book, courtesy of the Reading is Fundamental Program. A celebrated cartoonist and children’s author, Steig created numerous imaginative children’s stories and cartoons. Steig would have been 100 years old in November 2007.
“It was such a joy to share this book with local children and their families,” said Millman. “As a former librarian, I encourage all parents to read aloud to their children. Although it was a cold and rainy day outside, we had a lot of fun reading and discussing Steig’s story.”
