A love of books and reading is a lifelong treasure passed from adult to child, from generation to generation. Family Trees: A Celebration of Children’s Literature at the Concord Museum in historic Concord, Massachusetts gives Concord’s renowned literary tradition a creative twist.
During the holiday season the Museum decorates dozens of fanciful trees and wreaths creatively decorated by Museum volunteers to illustrate treasured and new favorite children’s books. The trees and wreaths cme in all shapes and sizes and are adorned with original ornaments inspired by acclaimed children’s storybooks and contemporary picture book favorites.
We are thrilled to welcome Pamela Zagarenski, Illustrator of Zola’s Elephant and two-time Caldecott-honor winning artist, as this year’s Honorary Chair.
