Presenting THE HARE on the CHAIR

Saturday, September 10th

11:30am – 1:00pm Palmer Street, Harvard Square
(event will move indoors to the 3rd floor of The Coop in the event of inclement weather)

The Harvard Coop, in partnership with the Harvard Square Business Association, is proud to present an outdoor COOP Kids event full of fun and curiosity in Harvard Square on pedestrian friendly Palmer Street.

Author and award-winning elementary educator emerita, Mary Palumbo, will read from her children’s book, THE HARE on the CHAIR.

In addition, there will be a coloring table, take home surprises, and tot-friendly treats to enjoy.

AND, all attendees will receive a coupon for $5.00 OFF any Children’s Book Purchase at The Coop (which CAN be used toward the purchase of The Hare on the Chair).

Geared to 3 to 8-year-olds, this is a timeless story that encourages children to learn from mistakes, reassures them that missteps are part of growth, and that learning is a continuous cycle built on relationships, wisdom, courage and yes, even fun.

Come meet Mary, her cousin Annie, and join the Storytime, and have your own copy of THE HARE on the CHAIR signed.

The first 5 people to buy the book will receive a FREE Plush Hare ($18.95 value)!

“THE HARE on the CHAIR penetrates to the heart of children’s fears about steps toward autonomy and independence. In a sweet and loving tale of how to overcome initial worries, a supportive outer voice, in the form of a hedgehog, helps the hare find his courage and strength. The story promotes perseverance and the rewards of involvement with the world of new friendships. The book offers children a wonderful tale to find one’s strengths to seek the rewards offered in new adventures.”
- Raymond A. Levy, PsyD, Author; Founder of The Fatherhood Project, Dept.of Psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital; and Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School Inspired by family, adventures around the world and many in their own backyard, Mary and Susan brought THE HARE on the CHAIR to life – the unexpected made it a challenge to complete.
