Join us in welcoming childrfen's author SARAH DILLARD to our store where she will be signing copies of her kid's book FIRST DAY AT ZOO SCHOOL, a picture book about friendship.

It's the first day of Zoo School and outgoing Amanda the Panda is ready.
She's excited and can't wait to go But for anxious Alfred the
Alligator, the first day fills him with dread. Why does he have to go?
Isn't he smart enough already? When Amanda gets to school and sees that
everyone seems to have a best friend, she decides that Alfred would be
the perfect best friend for her. But what does it mean to be a best
friend? Does it mean enjoying the same things or feeling the same way?
Amanda doesn't notice that Alfred doesn't like sitting at the front of
the classroom. And she doesn't notice that Alfred is miserable when she
picks him to play Tag. In fact, Amanda doesn't notice much about Alfred
at all. She's too busy enjoying everything all around her. And it's up
to Alfred to point out to her how he is feeling. A thoughtful story that
explores what it means to be a best friend.

SARAH DILLARD studied art at Wheaton College and illustration at Rhode
Island School of Design. She lives with her husband in Waitsfield,
