Story Time: Anne Wynter and Oge Mora present Everybody in the Red Brick Building

Join Greenlight for a special Saturday virtual story time with playwright and debut children’s book author Anne Wynter and Caldecott Honoree illustrator Oge Mora. In their new bedtime story book Everybody in the Red Brick Building, a chain reaction of noises wakes several children (and a cat) living in an apartment building. But it’s late into the night, so despite the disturbances, one by one, the building’s inhabitants return to their beds—this time, with a new set of sounds to lull them to sleep. An urban bedtime romp featuring diverse characters, pitch-perfect rhythms and vibrant, delightful illustrations, Everybody in the Red Brick Building is sure to become a bedtime classic for young readers. Ages 4 to 8.

Authors Spill the Beans for Kids! logoVideo Series for Kids

For connecting with children's book authors while learning remotely, check out our video interview series made just for kids! In Authors Spill the Beans, Greenlight Bookseller Ben Hoffman sits down (virtually!) with authors writing for middle graders—it's a great resource for parents and teachers to share with their students, and includes writing tips and insights for being creative while stuck at home (plus some silly clips and sound effects for kids too!).
