Isabel reads Building Stories at Green Light Bookstore, Brooklyn

Come to Story Time at Green Light Bookstore.
The fabulous Isabel Hill reads her super fun Building Stories.
She can tell, she can show how to see, how to read buildings.
Sure, like a story book, buildings have stories.
Did you know why the front of the YMCA building has a stone carved ship?
(Years ago, only sailors could stay there, you will learn)
What about the one with a monkey family, a roaring lion and an elegant elephant?
(Right, that's the fantastic Bronx Zoo!)
Come to Story Time at Green Light Bookstore.
You will discover that buildings are like us;
they will tell you who they were, who they are.
Listen carefully, and look carefully,
because just like us,
some are wild, others are very shy.

Brooklyn-based author, photographer, architectural historian, Isabel Hill presents her new picture book, Building Stories, a rich collection of photographs and facts, all told in rhyming verse to delight young readers.
