Be A Maker Story & Project with Author Katey Howes

What better way to spend the afternoon of a half-day of school than creating with author Katey Howes as she returns to her hometown to celebrate the launch of her beautiful new picture book BE A MAKER. Howes will read her new book aloud, and lead workshop participants in creating their own playground diorama in the spirit of the characters in the book. Workshop registration required, sign up here.

Workshop registration includes signed copy of BE A MAKER, all project supplies, and instruction. Project is geared to children 6-10 years of age.

How many things can you make in a day? A tower, a friend, a change? In BE A MAKER, rhyme, repetition, and a few seemingly straightforward questions engage young readers in a discussion about the many things we make—and the ways we can make a difference in the world. This simple, layered story celebrates creativity through beautiful rhyming verse and vibrant illustrations with a timely message.

Katey Howes is thrilled to be making books for children. She also makes bad jokes, great apple crisp, and messy mistakes. Katey lives in Upper Makefield, Pennsylvania (really!) with her husband and three adventurous daughters makers. Katey is the author of picture books Magnolia Mudd and the Super Jumptastic Launcher Deluxe and Grandmother Thorn.
