Special Summer Saturday AM Author/Illustrator Storytime: Dorothy Price, Nana’s Favorite Things at Watchung Booksellers Montclair.  10:30am.

Sasha loves to shoot hoops and ride her bike. Those are her favorite things to do. But she also enjoys her Nana’s yummy treats. One day, Sasha learns her Nana has diabetes and can no longer eat the tasty snacks they have baked together over the years. With quick thinking, Sasha comes up with a clever plan to help her Nana become more active and healthy. Before long, Sasha and Nana realize they both have some new favorite things.  Dorothy H. Price is a former high school English teacher. She enjoys teaching children fun and imaginative ways to write creatively through her Charlotte-based Young Authors Program. Diabetes has affected many of her close relatives and friends. She is hopeful that this book will create dialogue around diabetes awareness and prevention.
