Floyd Cooper Memorial Children’s Story Hour: MAX AND THE TAG-ALONG MOON>
October 22, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 am EDTFree
Bring the kids to a delightful storybook reading of the late award-winning children’s book author and Easton’s own Floyd Cooper. The Parents Choice Awards best books list title, Max and the Tag-Along Moon, will be performed by Book and Puppet Co. owner, Andy Laties.
About the Book: Max loves his grandpa. When they must say goodbye after a visit, Grandpa reminds Max that the moon above them at Grandpa’s house is the same moon that will follow him all the way home. And on that swervy-curvy car ride back home Max smiles as the moon tags along, thinking of Grandpa. But when the sky darkens and the moon disappears behind clouds, Max worries that it did not follow him home after all. Yet when the clouds part and light streams through his window, he realizes that Grandpa was right—the moon was with him all along.
Floyd Cooper received a Coretta Scott King Award for his illustrations in The Blacker the Berry and a Coretta Scott King Honor for Brown Honey in Broomwheat Tea and I Have Heard of a Land. Born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Mr. Cooper received a degree in fine arts from the University of Oklahoma and, after graduating, worked as an artist for a major greeting card company. He lived for many years in Easton, PA. His many beloved books form a lasting legacy.
