Coleen Paratore – BIG

At Wellesley Books,   82 Central Street Wellesley, MA 02482

Presentation, Q & A, book signing

Join Coleen Paratore at our weekly Story time event as she reads from her most recent book BIG.


BIG goes beyond the basics to show that size is more than a matter of height. Touching on ideas such as health, citizenship, and imagination, this book can be the key to heartfelt dialogue between children and caregivers about the importance of values over valuables.


With 17 books published in her first eight years as an author, Coleen Paratore loves sharing what she has learned with great enthusiasm and encouragement.   She credits her mother with taking her on the bus each Saturday to the city library to collect her “treasures” for the week. Her work includes the bestselling novel THE WEDDING PLANNER’S  DAUGHTER, now a six-book series, soon to be a movie, about a girl who loves to read and is committed to paying her “community rent,” continually finding new ways to make positive contributions in the world.
