Our Wild Animal Stage features authors of books about animals together with handlers of some very exotic animals.
A huge favorite at the Orange County Children’s Book Festival is the FREE petting animal area set adjacent to the animal stage and exhibit area.
The festival is host to many popular middle grade to young adult authors.
Many of them will present on the stage or interact as part of a lively discussion panel.
New this year is the Cooking & Health Stage which will feature some prominent chefs cooking up some delicious and healthy recipes for youngsters. The Stage will also feature authors of children’s cook books, health related books and other food related subjects.
