In the spirit of favorites like Stick & Stone and Spoon Jonathan E. Jacobs’s debut picture book, The Secret Rhino Society, tells the story of a highly unusual group of friends. Hudson the hippo, Fran the earthworm, and Jean the lightbulb have one thing in common: a profound appreciation for rhinos. So, they form a Secret Rhino Appreciation Society, in which a key activity is wearing paper horns. But when they meet their first real, live rhino and ask her to do rhino-y things, she doesn’t want to charge or snort—she’s a gardener! She is not what the society expected, but can they learn to appreciate her for who she is? This funny, character-driven story—stunningly illustrated by Samantha Cotterill—explores themes of friendship, expectations, and prejudice. Join Jacobs for a reading and some at-home crafts at this Saturday’s virtual story time! Register in advance.
