She will also sign the books, both of which are geared for ages 3 to 5, during the two-hour event.
According to a news release, “Lumpy Socks” is a fun story that teaches about the seasons in a way that young children can understand.
Another fun story, “Allergic to Mornings,” teaches children to be brave and embrace changes as adventures.
The lesson in the story can be used as a tool to engage young children in conversation about things that stresses them and help teach them how to develop coping skills, according to the news release.
