Happy Children’s Book Week! Didn’t know children’s books had a week? Each year the Children’s Book Council celebrates books and reading for children! This year the Grand Rapids Public Library is celebrating by honoring Olivia, and who better to be honored! Olivia is that spunky picture book pig famous for her energy, imagination, and great self-esteem. We had a trunk full of clothes and accessories featured in the Olivia books that kids could wear and pose in. Ms. Kim from the Cooks Arts Center also came in to demonstrate and help kids make a star of their very own. Using oil pastels, water color, and lots of embellishments even Olivia would be proud to show off these fabulous stars! This wonderful program is sponsored by the Grand Rapids Public Library Foundation’s Hekman Family Fund. There are more this week so be sure to check the schedule!
