Kids Writers LIVE! Fun & Facts in the Forest with Lulu Delacre

Celebrate the Spring 2022 season of the Read to Reef Book Club with a virtual visit from children's book author Lulu Delacre! 

Join Lulu for a virtual walk through the cloud forest of Ecuador as she reads from ¡Olinguito, de la A a la Z! Olinguito from A to Z! Find the hidden zoologist; discover extraordinary flora and fauna high up in the Andes Mountains range; and have a sneak-peek of her upcoming picture book Cool Green: Amazing, Remarkable Trees. To cap it all off, Lulu will guide the audience in making leaf-stamped art, just like she did for both picture books. Q&A time included. 

A special guest from the National Aquarium will be dropping by virtually to talk about the Read to Reef program and visit author Lulu Delacre, whose book Olinguito from A to Z! is featured on this season’s Read to Reef booklist.

Please gather the following materials if you’d like to join in the craft (and ask an adult to help you if you are under the age of 8):

  • 3 or 4 sheets of white absorbent paper
  • Fresh or pressed tree leaves of different shapes and sizes
  • One 1/2" flat paint brush
  • Up to two colors of acrylic paint
  • One small plate per paint color
  • One jar with clear water
  • Paper towels
  • Table

This program is presented in partnership with the National Aquarium.
