The fourth offering in Bay Street Theater’s “Story Time,” a new series of eight children’s books read aloud on Zoom by the authors themselves, will feature Hyewon Yum reading “Grandpa Across the Ocean,” at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 17.

Born and raised in South Korea, Yum now lives in New York with her family. Every summer, she visits her parents in South Korea so her kids can spend time with their grandparents. She is the creator of many acclaimed picture books, including “Lion Needs a Haircut,” “Saturday Is Swimming Day” and “Mom, It’s My First Day of Kindergarten!”

Offered every Saturday morning at 10:30 a.m., other authors in the “Story Time” series include Susan Verde reading “I Am Yoga” on April 24; Linsey Davis reading “Stay This Way Forever” on May 1; Scott Rothman reading “Attack of the Underwear Dragon” on May 8; and finally, Julie Andrews and her daughter Emma Walton Hamilton reading “Simeon’s Gift” on May 15.

Parents are encouraged to purchase the books in advance so their child can read along with the authors. The series is designed for kids ages 3 to 8 and following each reading, authors will be available for a question-and-answer session with participants. Tickets for “Story Time” are $15 at baystreet.org or by calling 631-725-9500.

Story Time is sponsored by BookHampton, Canio’s Books, Michael Hebron, RJ Julia Booksellers and Sag Harbor Books.
