Created in honor of Dr. Seuss and his concerns regarding Sustainability, Ohio Illustrator Stacy Fabbre and North Carolina Author Melissa Rooney’s new children’s book, "The Fate of the Frog", combines engaging illustrations and playful verse that is as fun to read aloud as it is to listen to. Using an engaging plot told in Seuss-like anapestic tetrameter, The Fate of the Frog addresses the importance of water resources as well as other K-2 curricula topics. Melissa will read The Fate of the Frog, then host a Family Q&A/discussion and a make-and-take plush tadpole craft using 100% recycled materials. The event is free and open to the public.
