Have you given someone an air hug yet? Coronavirus has left many of us, even kids, wondering how to show affection. Please join Miss Malaprop's Storytime on Instagram every Wednesday morning at 10. On October 7, we are excited to have author Eoin McLaughlin and illustrator Polly Dunbar as our first guest readers. They will share their new book, While We Can't Hug.

In their first book, Hug, Hedgehog and Tortoise, despite quills and a hard shell, find they are the perfect hugging companions. In the sequel, Hedgehog and Tortoise know they cannot keep social distance and hug safely. Can they find other ways to show each other how much they love and appreciate each other? With the help and advice of their other animal friends, they find the solutions! Even grownups might get great ideas from these smart animals. Polly will also show us how to create our own unique animal drawings, too. Please join Miss Malaprop to welcome these wonderful puppet friends and their human creators as they share these beautiful books on Malaprop's Instagram feed. We’ll see you virtually on Wednesday, October 7, at 10 a.m.
