Children's Book Festival 1

There is a great lineup of authors this year that I think you’ll be excited about! Authors and illustrators will be available to sign books immediately following their presentations. Families can also shop for featured books at the Time Tested Books booth.

Bestselling author Laura Numeroff, is headlining! She will present her classic book, “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie”, and also read her latest book, “Raising a Hero”, about a puppy in training to become a service dog.

Two musical storytelling presentations will take the stage during the Festival. “Peter and the Wolf” comes to life through music and narration by WolfGANG!, the Sacramento Philharmonic and Opera’s woodwind ensemble, and parents and children can enjoy some music-making fun together through “Rhythms to Say, Rhythms to Play,” presented by the Sacramento Valley Association for the Education of Young Children.
