Local Author Launches New Book at Hooray for Books!

A new children’s book is coming out next week called PEEP and EGG: I’m Not Hatching. It’s the first installment in a new series featuring the eternally optimistic Peep and shyly hesitant Egg.

Egg’s resistance to hatching—and the delay tactics she uses—will be hilariously recognizable to toddlers, preschoolers, and their parents! Author Laura Gehl, a neuroscientist by training and mother of 4 from Chevy Chase, MD, developed the character with an eye toward helping children overcome the fears at the root of stubborn behavior.      

The PEEP and EGG series will officially hatch on February 10 at Hooray for Books in Alexandria.

When: Wednesday, February 10th at 4 pm

Where: Hooray for Books, 1555 King St. in Alexandria, Virginia
