Families traveled to a Cleveland bookstore to introduce their youngsters to a child author during her first book signing.

Lauryn Marie Burks met young readers as she autographed her new children's books My 100 Hands and My 100 Hands Go To School to students at Loganberry Book Store located at 13015 Larchmere Blvd. in Cleveland.

The event took place Saturday, November 15 from 11 a.m. to noon.

Lauryn's books explore the imagination of a young girl who wishes she had 100 hands to do all the things that must get done.

The first story called My 100 Hands was created by Lauryn when she was just 5 years old. 

One day as her father was in a hurry for her to get dressed, Lauryn began day-dreaming, like most children do and wished that she had 100 hands to help her get ready. 

She went on to tell her parents about all of the things she would do, if she had 100 hands. 

They recorded her thoughts and published them in the children's book. 

Lauryn takes us on trip through her imagination as she describes how to put her friendly little hands to work and make life easier, in My 100 Hands.

In the second story, The 100 Hands accompany her to the first day of school. Lauryn created a true story line with a setting, characters, and plot all on her own. 

In My 100 Hands Go To School we get to know the personalities of 8 of The 100 Hands.
