Will Hillenbrand

Will Hillenbrand will visit Northern Tier Regional Library as part of a very special reading event on April 20, 2016 at 10:00 AM. The featured story will be Kite Day, which is written and illustrated by Will Hillenbrand.

Kite Day is this year’s book selection for One Book, Every Young Child. Celebrating its 11th year, this is a collaborative project using the vehicle of a “One Book, One State” program to highlight the importance of early literacy development in preschoolers ages 3-6 years. In its inaugural year, the One Book, Every Young Child program won the coveted national John Cotton Dana Library Public Relations Award.

Published in 2012 by Holiday House, this story is about two friends, Mole and Bear, who decide to make a kite and find themselves on a windy-day adventure.

By making this reading a family event, parents and caregivers will not only enjoy sharing a story experience with their preschooler, but they will also have the opportunity to learn more about the One Book, Every Young Child initiative.

This event is free and open to the public. To learn more about the One Book, Every Young Child initiative, visit www.paonebook.org.

One Book, Every Young Childis made possible through a collaboration of the Pennsylvania Department of Education, Pennsylvania Department of Human Services, Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh, Please Touch Museum, State Museum of Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania Library Association, Pennsylvania Center for the Book, Pennsylvania’s Promise for Children, Pennsylvania Association for the Education of Young Children and The Pennsylvania Child Care Association. This project is made possible by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services as administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Education through the Office of Commonwealth Libraries.
