I'm so proud to announce that two of our First Steps staff --  Shanda Trent and Yvette Daniels -- are also local children's book authors and will read from their new books at the event. 
  • From 11:00 - 11:30 a.m., Shanda will share her new picture book Farmers' Market DayThe story features a feisty little girl finds who finds exactly the right item to take home during a trip to the farmers' market. The New York Times recently gave Shanda's book a very positive review
  • From 1:30 - 2:00 p.m., Yvette will read two of her books, Harry, Harry the Dancing Hippo and Ten Singing Cockatiels. Her books are set to music and filled with silly words and actions. Both authors will offer additional stories and songs during their half-hour readings.
The event also serves as a fundraiser for First Steps-Ann Arbor. A percentage of all purchases (food, books, games etc.) on Friday will support First Steps' efforts to support families of young children in our community! Customers need to say “First Steps” when they're checking out for the program to get a percentage.
