We are thrilled to have Heidi Stemple visit the bookstore to present her new picture book, A Kite for the Moon. The story begins when a little boy, who is flying his kite, notices a sad Moon. He sends up kites to her, even writing notes to Moon promising he will come see her someday. This promise propels him through years and years of studying, learning, and training to be an astronaut! Dedicated to Neil Armstrong, and a perfect children's book to help celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first United States' moon landing,
