Thursday, June 3rd – Virtual Author Visit at Hanby Elementary School – Wilmington, DE

Jamie shares her story It’s Not Mean to be Green followed by Question & Answer sessions with students and teachers.

When local children’s author Jamie Kleman’s son confused the term “being green” with witches, Frankenstein, and other iconic monsters during a car ride home, she couldn’t have known the impact the book it inspired would have. Years later, Kleman donated a signed copy of It’s Not Mean to be Green to the Kennett Library, and the staff knew exactly what to do with the story that helps children of all ages understand how they can take care of the environment. They’re turning it into a bilingual Story Stroll.

In collaboration with seventeen local businesses, the book is being divided into two-page sections that will be displayed in the front windows of participating businesses and restaurants so that as you walk downtown, you and your child can read the story together. Both English and Spanish versions of It’s Not Mean to be Green will be in the shop and restaurant windows throughout the entire month of May.
