We are delighted to kick off the summer by hosting children's book author Cynthia Zordich as she reads A Bee in the Matchbox, her book about an unlikely friendship between a dog and a bee. One day, a dog encountered a bee buzzing around and was scared. The big black dog had been warned about bees. The bee saw the dog and was also scared. The bee had been warned about dogs. The bee flew at the dog to scare it away, but instead, they played and had fun together. The dog accidentally hurt the bee. Chuckie, the dog, ran to his owner for help. The owner got a matchbox and placed the bee in it. Chuckie stood by the matchbox to protect the bee for days. They both realized that they could have been playing with each other, but they were taught to be afraid of each other. They learned that they could accept each other’s differences to become best friends.

We hope to see you there!
