WNP Story Time! WNP Event
Sep 2, 2020 4:30pm-5:30pm (Wednesday) at Virtual Online Event
Nicole Meldahl will read classic and history-themed children’s stories live the first Wednesday of every month. We began this series on Facebook Live in May and, after a month off, are shifting to Zoom! Fun for kids of all ages, even if you’re just a kid at heart. This month we’re reading “Levi Strauss Gets A Bright Idea” written by Tony Johnston and illustrated by Stacy Innerst, recommended for ages 4-8.
What’s a California miner to do when gold dust sifts right out of his holey pockets? With such a raggedly wardrobe, he may as well be mining in the vanilla (that is, his birthday suit)! Good thing Levi Strauss is out west, ready with his needle and a head full of bright ideas. With some quick thinking, quicker stitching, and handy arithmetic, Levi keeps all the gold rushers clothed—and becomes a modern American hero. A Wild West tale, "Levi Strauss Gets a Bright Idea" celebrates creativity, innovation, and the ubiquitous item that fills the closets of grateful jean wearers worldwide.
Sponsored by the Sunset Heights Association of Responsible People (SHARP) as part of our Education Initiative. All books were purchased at our favorite independent bookseller in the Richmond District, Green Apple Books. This event is free (but donations are appreciated) and pre-registration is required.
