Join us for Sunday Storytime, with milk, cookies, and the wonderful Ruth Chan, illustrator of "The Great Indoors" and more!


When the humans head out to go camping, the animals settle in for a relaxing holiday of their own! Teen bear takes over the bathroom with her curling iron, the beavers prepare their fanciest recipes, and the deer kick up their feet for a dance party. What starts as a little unwinding soon escalates to a big mess, just in time for everyone to head home. . . . 

Julie Falatko and Ruth Chan's quirky humors shine in this hilarious take on family trips that will have kids wondering what exactly goes on back at home when they're on vacation.


Ruth Chan is an illustrator and author who spent her childhood tobogganing in Canada, her teens in China, a number of years studying art and education, and a decade working with families in underserved communities. She now writes and illustrates full-time in Brooklyn NY, where she lives with her dog, Feta. Visit for more info.
