May 24: Spring has sprung! Come plant your own flowers at Barbara’s Bookstore and listen to fun stories about Spring time and gardening. Snacks will be provided.
Hawthorn Mall invites children and their families to its “Spring Has Sprung” event on Friday, May 24th. During this FREE event, children will get together in the reading section at Barbara’s Bookstore for a very special storytime, as well as a snack and kids craft activity.

During the event’s storytime, the authors of four children’s books will read the latest versions of their books aloud to the children and families in attendance; following the storytime, each author will be on hand to sign autographs and books. These popular authors include:

-Suzanne Slade, a former NASA engineer and award-winning author of more than 100 children’s books who share Astronaut Annie, a story about a young girl preparing for her school’s career day
-Kevin Dill, the Chicago-born author of the popular Team Adventure Kids book series featuring a relatable cast of grade-school-aged characters
-Faith Goldstein, a Buffalo Grove, Illinois, author who will share Gorilla’s Night Out, a tale of fun and frolicking friends out on the town looking for adventure
-Lori Orlinsky, a Chicago-area mom, writer and marketing director who stands 5’1” on a good day, will share her new book Being Small Isn’t So Bad After All

Since the month of May is also all about springtime and gardening, children will also be given the opportunity to plant spring flowers they can take home with them.
