On Saturday, January 9, Sacred Heart Greenwich invites children ages 4 to 7 to join Melissa Guion, author and illustrator of “Baby Penguins Everywhere!” and “Baby Penguins Love Their Mama!” for an unforgettable experience.

Children can spend the morning with the author, beginning at 10:00am, at the school, 1177 King Street, in Greenwich for a book reading, penguin drawing demonstration, art project, and book signing.

Ms. Guion’s debut picture book, “Baby Penguins Everywhere!,” was selected for the 2012 Original Art exhibition at the Society of Illustrators in New York City.

At Sacred Heart Greenwich, Ms. Guion will lead children in an art project to advance their sense of fun in collaborating with others. Children will be delighted to find that they too can draw penguins.

Guion will discuss penguin facts and her books’ themes, which include growth and learning.

Please RSVP by contacting Sacred Heart’s Lower School librarian, Marian McLeod, at [email protected] There is no charge. Books will be available for signing.
