Join John and Jennifer Churchman for a Brave Little Finn storytime and activities!

Stuffed friends are invited to an animals-only "sheepover" in the bookstore! Guests are encouraged to bring their own stuffed friend to the event. The stuffed animals will attend the event with their people, but when closing time arrives, they will part ways. Just like Farmer John whispered words of encouragement to Brave Little Finn, guests will come up with messages for their stuffed animals. Everyone will have to be brave - like Finn! The stuffed animals will have free range of the bookstore for the evening, although we'll make sure they get plenty of rest. Phoenix staff will make sure to take lots of photos so the kiddos can see how much fun their stuffed animals have at their "sheepover"! Their people can pick them up at opening on Saturday morning. If they want, there will be a story time at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday that they can attend together.

ABOUT THE BOOK:  Meet the adorable and resilient baby lamb Finn in this true story about friendship and courage -- a follow-up to the bestselling picture book phenomenon The SheepOver! Newborn lamb Finn, raised inside the farmhouse, isn't as big and strong as the other animals on the farm. He can't help but be frightened as he ventures outside and encounters unfamiliar sights, sounds, and creatures. With the help of Farmer John and his animal friends, Little Finn learns to be brave and mighty.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS:  John and Jennifer bring their talents together to give voice to the stories of all the animals that surround them and add boundless enjoyment to their lives. They have made their home on a small farm in the beautiful countryside of Essex, Vermont, with their daughter Gabrielle. They are also the authors of the New York Times bestseller The SheepOver. John Churchman is an artist, photographer and farmer, bringing stories to life with his enchanting photo-illustrations. Jennifer Churchman is a multimedia artist and business consultant, and has loved telling stories all her life.
