Happy Birthday, Salina Yoon!

March 14, 2015 was not only Pi Day, but also the birthday of one of our favorite authors and illustrators, Salina Yoon!  To commemorate this very special occasion, Salina shared a couple of her newest books FOUND and STORMY NIGHT (and even made it rain!).  We gave away party hats, little stuffed toys, and raffled out a copy of STORMY NIGHT and a couple of Floppy dolls (the bunny from her books).  We also had cake, crafts, and a scavenger hunt!  Upon arrival, children were invited to sign a birthday dog as our gift to Salina for her birthday.
