Join us as we welcome back Columbus author Dr. Carlotta Penn in celebration of her latest picture book, Bright Boy ABCs.
At his soccer game or cello recital, gardening with Grandma or coding a space mission, and even when he makes mistakes, this "kool boy" embodies all the joy and brilliance of boyhood! Celebratory couplets and expansive illustrations go beyond the scope of a traditional alphabet book to reveal the details of the "bright boy's" life, painting a rich portrait of a character's whole world. As they journey from A to Z, young readers will find an element of their lives and dreams reflected in this boy's adventures and feel affirmed that they, too, are the bright star of their own story. This exuberant picture book by Carlotta Penn with illustrations by Nysha Lilly is sure to become a family favorite.
