If your kids love books, and you’re wondering what to do in Toronto for family day, we have a great suggestion. Check out the Stella and Sam Free Family Day Concert and Book Signing.
What to do in Toronto: It’s All About Stella and Sam
Author Marie-Louise Gay published the first Stella and Sam book, Stella, Star of the Sea, in 1999. It took off right away, and since then she has written and illustrated four more books featuring the engaging heroine and her little brother, Sam. The books feature gentle humour, a sense of whimsy and gorgeous watercolour illustrations.
Stella and Sam are a fixture for many Canadian families. Now that the books have become an award-winning television series on Disney Jr Canada, they’re even more beloved. You can attend the free concert and book signing celebrating the pair on February 18, 2013 from 10:30am-2:30pm at the Gladstone Hotel at 1214 Queen St West.
The concerts themselves will take place at 10:30am or 1:30pm. Author Marie-Louise Gay will read from the Stella and Sam books and Emilie Mover and her band will perform songs from the TV show.

This event is presented by Stella and Sam Apps, and there will be app demos and giveaways as well. Each Stella and Sam App combines beautiful animation and age-appropriate games.

Elegant and gentle, the Stella and Sam Adventures are perfect for the preschooler in your life. Whether your children are already fans, or you’re looking for some great characters to share with them, this free event will fit the bill for what to do in Toronto on Family Day.
