Beloved Argentine cartoonist to read to bilingual students at elementary schools in Washington DC & New York
TOON Books is delighted to present beloved Argentine cartoonist Liniers at public schools to meet with bilingual students and talk about his US debut of The Big Wet Balloon. In addition to hearing Liniers read his book and talk about cartooning, students can expect to see some live painting!
According to TOON's Editorial Director Françoise Mouly, "Ricardo has such a wonderful presence: warm, funny, wildly creative—Anyone would love to spend an hour with him. And meeting an author is a great thrill for kids. It's so important for children to have the opportunity to associate real people with the books they love. We are especially thankful to An Open Book Children's Literacy Foundation, the New York State Association for Bilingual Educators (NYSABE) and The City College of New York for making these school visits possible."
