Join us for a story time with Sarah Dillard, featuring her new book, Mouse Scouts Make Friends.
ABOUT THE BOOK: When Miss Poppy assigns the troop a new badge--Making Friends--the girls think it will easy. They're already friends, so what more is there to do? But when the Acorn Scouts learn they will need to team up with the boys in the Maple Scouts as part of the badge, everything changes. Suddenly, Tigerlily seems more interested in hanging out with her Maple Scout pal than in being friends with Violet. Friendships will be tested and opposites will find they have more in common than they thought as the Acorn Scouts figure out what it takes to be true friends.
Brimming with lively black-and-white illustrations--including pages from the official Mouse Scout Handbook, plus diagrams, games, activities, and more--this darling series is just right for chapter book readers ages 7-10. (All ages are invited to this event, though!)
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Sarah Dillard was briefly a Brownie and a Junior Scout.

On the brighter side, Sarah studied art at Wheaton College and illustration at the Rhode Island School of Design. Sarah lives in Waitsfield, Vermont, with her husband. Visit her at sarahdillard.com.
