A SEED WILL GROW by Eunice and Sabrina Moyle (11:30 AM – 12:30 PM) 

Best-selling local children’s book creators Eunice and Sabrina Moyle of Hello!Lucky have released their first interactive hands-on board book for toddlers, titled A Seed Will

Grow, published by Abrams Appleseed, New York. A Seed Will Grow makes it exciting and fun to learn about the seed-to-plant cycle, from seeing seeds grow shoots, roots, and leaves, to watching flowers bloom, pollinate, and grow fruit. It’s a joyful, colorful, hands-on celebration of nature. Most of all, it’s a celebration of children. Join Eunice and Sabrina as they read their book and lead participants in a series of craft activities and games to learn about the wonderful world of plants and take home fun prizes.
