NOVEMBER 17-18, 2021:

Visit our booth and see our presentation at the WLA ANNUAL FALL CONFERENCE! This year the Wisconsin Library Association will be held at the Hyatt Regency & KI Convention Center in Green Bay. We will be signing books and you can get your picture taken with Rhino & Dino!

The Barnards' presentation is called Long Day's Journey into Self-Publishing. We will go into the exciting aspects and pitfalls of self-publishing, talk about our creative methods, answer questions, and even show some of the items that Worzalla used during their professional printing processes of Rhino & Dino! It is scheduled for Thursday, November 18th from 3:30PM - 4:15PM. Books will be available for signing afterwards.

MANY OTHER EVENTS ARE STILL POSTPONED! DUE TO COVID-19. As libraries, schools and bookstores safely open again and start holding events, we will announce the new dates for book signings. Until then, signed and personalized copies of Mom Needs a Dinosaur! are available here or order our newest book Rhino & Dino in: Juice!

Despite the pandemic, The Barnards continued their MORNING READS and STORYTIMES AT HOME – with their friends Razzle, Zoodle and Chomper – for over a year! If you missed the fun, check out the Patterson Memorial Library's Facebook Page or Seabear Press' Facebook page. A You Tube channel was added in April 2021 for a sampling of what is on Facebook. Now the storytimes are in person once again but the virtual ones remain online if you still want to see The Barnards in action.

Already booked us, but want a flyer for your event? Sure, you can make one from scratch or you can save time and download ours! Just click to print and put in your info in the space provided just for you:

Our Super Storytimes aren't just reading. They offer a variety of interactive fun that fit your needs such as puppet shows, shadow puppet shows, fingerplays, songs and music, learning to and drawing a dinosaur with Erin, author and illustrator Q&As, a little magic, a lot of candy, and book signings where The Barnards will sign, personalize and draw something fun inside of your book while you watch! Space and availability is limited so e-mail today and we will be happy to send you details!
