In the Learning Center
Max, Ruby, Emily, and Yoko – Rosemary Wells’s unforgettable characters have been childhood favorites for generations. But there is more to a book than its characters. Striking covers are worth a close second look for they set the stage and give young readers clues about the story that unfolds inside. Join us in the Learning Center as we explore the special magic that makes Rosemary’s picture books family treasures.
