About the event
Join us for a special storytime and book-themed activities with Rosanne L. Kurstedt, the author of several beautiful children's books! She will be reading from two of her recent books Karate Kid and And I Think About You.
And I Think About You Written by Rosanne L. Kurstedt and illustrated by Ya-Ling Huang, And I Think About You poignantly captures the love and connection shared by a working mama bear and her cub. The rhythmic pattern will enchant and delight young readers --- all the way to the surprising end!
Karate Kid introduces youngsters to karate in a fun and engaging way with an emphasis on how karate can increase confidence. It has simple, measured, and meditative text that is complemented by playful, yet instructive illustrations by Mark Chambers.
