Zachariah OHora, author and illustrator of Stop Snoring, Bernard!, will be visiting libraries, museums, and other early learning sites across the state. Fifty-five trunks developed by museum educators also will be available for borrowing through public libraries. Each trunk is filled with fun book-related activities, games and manipulatives for young children. In addition each trunk includes a guide that encourages use of the trunk contents in activities that are aligned with the Pennsylvania Early Learning Standards.

The following is a listing of Zachariah OHora's visits around the state. This list is subject to change. Two contacts are listed for most locations: a media contact that should be contacted only by a member of the media wishing to cover an event; and a public number that the public can call for information.

Please Note: Not all events are open to the public and some require an admission fee.

What People are Saying About Stop Snoring, Bernard!

"An artist to watch." - Kirkus Reviews
"The endearing tale-told in simple images whose heavy black outlines and graphic shadows are sometimes reminiscent of century-old Arts and Crafts woodcuts-follows Bernard's travails with humor but also a good dose of empathy." - Time Out New York Kids

"Here's a debut that's sure to make a splash ...This is a crowd-pleaser sure to send youngsters clamoring for more from snoring Bernard."
- Shelf Awareness

"Gentle text and a low-key story line allow debut talent OHora to put lots of energy into his spreads ... A promising debut."
- Publishers Weekly

"Jaunty compositions, with animal characters busting out of the frames, makes for audacious humor, and hand-painted lettering signifying Bernard's snoring and the animals' admonitions adds visual zing. Young children will fall for Bernard's over-the-top noisemaking and relish joining in with the quickly familiar phrase, ‘Stop snoring, Bernard!'" - Booklist
