We are delighted to welcome author and illustrator John Sandford to The Book Stall for a Special Edition of our weekly Saturday Storytime. John will share his beautiful new book Oak Leaf, an artistic picture book about an autumn leaf's journey. We can't think of a better book to kick off our October storytimes!
About the book: A lone autumn leaf falls and flies away on a breeze. It travels up and over the world and down again—where it finally lands on the page of a little girl’s open book and becomes a keepsake.
John Sandford has illustrated over 60 children's books. He earned a gold medal from the Parents' Choice Awards, a best book selection from the Children's Book Council, and star reviews from Publishers Weekly and School Library Journal, among other honors. He has worked in children's publishing for more than 30 years and is the art director for Cricket magazine. He lives in Chicago with his wife, Frances, and daughter, Eleanor.
