Carrie Pearson Book Signing at the U. P. Children’s Museum
On Saturday, March 15th., author Carrie Pearson will be signing her books inside the forest exhibit area of the U.P. Children’s Museum on Baraga Avenue, in Marquette. The book signing will begin at 2pm.
Do you ever wonder how animals stay cool in the summer? Well, they wonder how humans do too! In a twist of perspective, wild creatures question if humans use the same summer adaptation strategies that they do. Do they dig under the dirt, grow special summer hair, or only come out at night? In this rhythmic story, “A Cool Summer Tale”, take a look through an animal’s eyes and discover the interesting ways animals handle the heat.
This sequel to the award-winning picture book, “A Warm Winter Tail”, features many of the same animals, but this time, with their summer adaptations, offering an important “compare and contrast” opportunity.
Carrie Pearson is originally from Hillsdale, Michigan and now happily resides in Marquette. A former early elementary teacher, she is Michigan’s co-Regional Advisor for the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI). She is also the parent advisor for the Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) of the Marquette County Community Foundation. To learn more, visit www.carriepearsonbooks.com.
