Story Time: Sarah Thomas & Jo Kosmides Edwards present Kalamata’s Kitchen

Join Kalamata’s Kitchen creator Sarah Thomas and illustrator Jo Kosmides Edwards for the first of many exciting food adventures in this charming new picture book about facing fears and overcoming back-to-school jitters! Tomorrow is Kalamata's first day at a new school, and she's nervous! If only she and her alligator friend, Al Dente, could go to back to the Indian spice market they visited this summer, then maybe she'd remember how to feel brave when new experiences seem scary. Luckily for Kalamata, all the magic required for her journey is right in her own kitchen! As Kalamata and Al Dente transport themselves to a magical land filled with tasty ingredients, she realizes being brave is exciting! And most importantly, she learns that when we're nervous about trying new things, food can comfort us and remind us to stay curious, courageous, and compassionate. This virtual Saturday story time will include a reading, drawing session, and dance party, so bring your favorite crayons, colored pencils, and dancing shoes!

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!).
