Story Time with Hyewon Yum
Featuring Lion Needs a Shot
Greenlight welcomes Hyewon Yum, award-winning children's author-illustrator--and our neighbor and friend in Brooklyn--for the debut of her newest picture book. A lion family navigates their fears of going to the doctor in this adorable, hilariously relatable companion to Lion Needs a Haircut. Little lion Luka is NOT worried about a visit to the doctor. He’s NOT scared of getting a shot. And he’s definitely NOT a little lion anymore. R-O-A-R! His younger sister, Lulu, might be nervous for her first checkup—but no need to worry, big brother is here to set a brave example. Step by step, he walks her through what will happen, offering encouragement and holding her hand. But when it’s his turn, on second thought, maybe he doesn’t need to see Dr. Brown today; he’s feeling perfectly fine, after all. This witty, tender story follows two siblings sharing a universal experience together, giving each other courage and realizing that a trip to the doctor’s office isn’t so bad. Join us for a virtual reading and a special drawing activity followed by a Q&A with the author!
