Some of my daughter’s favorite books are illustrated by Christian Robinson so, when our local library started promoting a visit and book signing for “Last Stop on Market Street” (which has become a nightly read for us) I was super excited, and even more so when the library reached out to have me photograph all the fun!
Christian joined the gathered crowd for a reading of the book accompanied by a guitarist. He read through the story, which was accompanied by the live music to correspond with the musical portion of the story. It was pretty magical.
Afterwards, a few kids were chosen to call out their favorite animal for him to draw on-the-spot, followed by a book signing that included a small sketch on the title pages.
There were crafts for the kids and a raffle for prizes.
The grand finale included a bus ride around downtown, just like in the book! The guitarist lead sing-alongs and the kids just loved every minute of it. Watching my daughter see one of her favorite stories come to life was an amazing experience!
