After Main Street Books' weekly Saturday Story Time, stick around for a special reading with local children's book author and illustrator Amelia Wyatt, who is a current student at Cannon School.
Amelia's first book, Ozzie and the Island, is the story of a funny-looking bird named Ozzie who is in search of a new home. Hungry, tired, and thirsty, he lands on a little island in the middle of the ocean. There he encounters strangers who are not very friendly. Like many immigrants adapting to new surroundings, Ozzie finds himself frustrated and confused. One small gesture, however, provides hope for friendship and acceptance.
Amelia and her family donate 100% of profits from Ozzie and the Island sales to La Escuelita, a bilingual preschool located in Davidson that primarily serves low-income, hispanic children.
