Saturday Storytime: Good Morning, Mother Nature


Join Bend authors Lucas Alberg and Megan Marie Myers at a special storytime for their new book, Good Morning, Mother Nature. They will read both of their books at 11:00am, then sign books until noon. 


Say “good morning” with a heartwarming children’s picture book that pays homage to nature and wildlife.

Open your eyes, stretch your arms, and gather the kids for a perfect story to begin the day. Good Morning, Mother Nature lets readers of all ages awaken to celebratory text that serves as an ode to the great outdoors. Follow a chickadee at sunrise as it flits through the forest, wishing “good morning” to bears, beavers, deer, and other beloved critters. Along the way, the friendly bird encounters common sights and sounds of the forest, from fresh dew on leaves to a burbling brook.

Written as a companion to the acclaimed Goodnight Great Outdoors, this children’s book is a warm, rhyming tale by Lucas Alberg: “Good morning world. Good morning light. Good morning critters peeking into sight.” Highly stylized, playful artwork by Megan Marie Myers helps to create a picture book that your family or classroom will beg to hear again and again.
