Special Storytime | When Nilly Met Nelly | The Hungry Ele
Giavanna Grein will be holding a storytime featuring her book, When Nilly Met Nelly, the Hungry Hungry Ele.
When Nilly encounters a young elephant named Nelly stealing bananas from her farm in India, she tries to scare her away out of fear. Though realizing that Nelly is harmless and wants to be her friend, Nilly lets her continue to eat the bananas. How much can one tiny elephant eat, right? But the next day Nelly returns with two more elephants, and within a few days there’s an entire group!
Realizing she needs to protect her family farm, Nilly tries all of the local remedies to make the elephants leave. Will she be able to save her family’s farm without losing her new friend Nelly?
After the story, attendees will also be creating a craft to take home with them.
The event will take place on Saturday, August 24th beginning at 9 AM. All storytimes are free and open to the public; no prior registration is required. To enjoy all that is being offered, please arrive promptly at the start time.
