This year, Bookmarks at NorthPark Center will usher in the New Year with a little scare as they feature No Time for Monsters/No Hay Tiempo para Monstruos in their January line up of Bilingual Books and Boogie storytime. On January 22nd at 10:30am, children’s book author, Spelile Rivas will slink into Bookmarks with her devil, red monster, Chuy, and delight Boogie participants with her shivery half-hour presentation. In addition to receiving a chillingly adorable story with a lesson, the Boogie participants will also receive a special gift!
No Time for Monsters, an English/Spanish bilingual picture book, is about a young boy, Roberto, who creates monsters to avoid doing chores. Released in April 2010 by Piñata Books, it has also been nominated for the 2010-2011 Tejas Star Book Award which allows the children of Texas an opportunity to vote for their favorite bilingual picture book. The Bilingual Books and Boogie storytime will conclude with local author, Spelile Rivas, autographing copies of No Time for Monsters.
Bookmarks at NorthPark Center is a branch of the Dallas Public Library located inside the NorthPark Shopping Center. Each Saturday morning at 10:30 am, Atmos Energy presents Bilingual Books and Boogie, a free storytime, in English and Spanish with guaranteed merriment and adventure.
