Acoustic Rooster and His Barnyard Band by Kwame Alexander Tuesday, September 23, 11:00 am , Civic Center Library

Join us for a very special preschool program at the Civic Center Library as we celebrate the Michigan Reads! program.  Michigan Reads! is an annual early literacy program focused on a featured book. For 2014, it is Acoustic Rooster and His Barnyard Band by author Kwame Alexander and illustrator Tim Bowers.

Illustrator Tim Bowers will be visiting the library for a special program as he presents Acoustic Rooster! In Acoustic Rooster, after realizing he can’t win the barnyard talent contest as a solo act with such fierce competition, a rooster with a love for jazz looks to help from other animals. A quartet with an unbelievable sound is created, with their ability to work together in this book with rhyming text, references to key American musicians, and vivid illustrations. The story, the focus on making music together, and the wonderful colors and characters all bring children together as they learn to make their own music.

Don’t miss your chance to meet Tim Bowers and hear the story of Acoustic Rooster! All ages are welcome. To register, please call 586-751-0770. Books will be available to be purchased and signed at this event.
