This event is free, but because we are limited in the number of guests we can host during this storytime, we are requiring pre-registration to secure your spot. Please include total number of attendees (including children and infants) when you register. If you are not able to attend, please cancel your tickets so that another family may attend in your place. Seating will be on the floor of the terrace; feel free to bring a towel if you wish!

Rebecca Wheeler is an author of children’s books and YA. In her second picture book, When Mama Grows with Me, a mama and her son create their own garden, starting with just a few small seeds and ending with a beautiful display of flowers. They observe how pollinators help the earth stay healthy, learn how to care for plants, and meet other critters that live in their garden, all while playfully shaping their bodies into yoga poses inspired by nature. Not only do Mama and her son learn valuable lessons about their garden, but along the way, they also learn to practice patience.
