Jane Kohuth

Join us for Sunday Storytime with Jane Kohuth! Jane will be reading from her beautiful new picture book, Something on the Hill. Celebrate the arrival of Spring with this picture book that follows a small field mouse as she rallies the larger woodland animals to join her on a journey up a hill, sensing that something is about to happen at the top.... What could it be?!

Those who purchase Something on the Hill, either in advance or at the event, will be able to participate in a springtime craft activity! If you're not able to make the event, you can order a signed and personalized copy by clicking on the book below. Add "Signed Copy" and how you'd like the book personalized in the comments section of your order. 

When Field Mouse wakes from her nap, the air is no longer chilly, and she feels like there's something has changed. Something is out there, calling to her.... Something is on the Hill.

She spots her friend, Squirrel. "Help me find the Something," Mouse tells him. And so the two scamper through a clearing. Soon, they spot Doe. "Where are you hurrying today?" Doe asks them. "We're going to the Hill," says Mouse.

And so it goes, as Turtle, the Ducks, and the Bears join the group, all making their way to the Something on the Hill. As they climb to the tippy-top, this parade of animals will discover just what that Something is: a leaf shoot, tiny and green.

Just in time for spring comes this delightful picture book--perfect for storytime--that reminds us that the smallest of things can matter just as much as the big ones.
