Story Time with Camille Andros

Page 158 Books welcomes children’s author Camille Andros for a special story time in partnership with our friends Little Heirlooms Books.

 

FROM A SMALL SEED is lyrical picture book biography of Eliza Schuyler Hamilton, co-founder and director of the first private orphanage in New York City and wife of founding father Alexander Hamilton. Ever since she was a young girl, Eliza Hamilton hoped to help people in need. From the private quarters of her family home to her national platform as Hamilton’s partner, Eliza was a lifelong advocate for fairness, freedom and faith. The remarkable acts of charity and public service she performed after Alexander’s death are considered a significant contribution to the Hamilton legacy the world celebrates today. Here is a thoughtful, historical account of her life beginning with her childhood influences. This is a lyrical portrait of an exemplary public figure whose principles have stood the test of time.

 

Camille Andros is the author of CHARLOTTE THE SCIENTIST IS SQUISHED and THE DRESS AND THE GIRL. She lives in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, with her husband and six children.
