Written by Mo Willems, illustrated by Amber Ren, published by Hyperion Books for Children

Because sometimes it’s the smallest moments that have the biggest impact. Mo Willems, a number one New York Times best-selling author and illustrator, composes a powerful symphony of chance, discovery, persistence, and magic in this moving tale of a young girl’s journey to center stage.

The Hylton Performing Arts Center and the Prince William Public Library System  have joined forces to launch Hylton at Home Story Corner, a virtual performing arts story time this fall. The goal of this virtual story time is to increase awareness of different performing art forms and artists through books. Each story time will be pre-recorded and premiere on both the Hylton Center and Library’s social media channels at 10:30 a.m. on the third Saturday of the month. The library will prepare reader advisories for each book that list similar books children and families may want to explore. Recommended for children ages 4-8. This Hylton at Home  Story Corner read by Anthony Maiello, George Mason University Reva and Sid Dewberry Family School of Music.

“Because” will be streamed simultaneously on this webpage, Facebook and YouTube at the scheduled time.
