To commemorate National Literacy Month in September, Casita will host three book reading events, where the authors get the chance to breathe life to the characters of their stories by reading them aloud to children.
The event is free and attendees are welcomed on a first come first served basis!
Save the dates and take your little ones along on September 13, September 20 and September 27 at 4pm.
Be sure to stick around, too, as the Casita teachers have organized a short activity after the reading with the author and the Casita teachers!
Here’s the details on the events:
September 13: Honeycomb & Her Superpower Friends by Vivian Luk, 4pm-4.30pm
The story is written through the eyes of Honeycomb, whose superpower is Creativity. She meets six other girls with the superpowers of Passion, Kindness, Courage, Gratitude, Curiosity and Persistence. Reading this book is a great way to start a conversation about how to appreciate the people around us. Honeycomb inspires us to see the good in everyone while discovering our own traits that we can turn into life tools to overcome everyday challenges.
September 20: Bibi’s Big Feelings by Lindsey Leigh Newton, 4pm-4.30pm
Lindsey’s debut book takes Bibi the baby elephant through a journey of learning about those key big feelings. Through Bibi, Lindsey has found a special and digestible way, for children and grownups alike, to explore and reflect on the big emotions that our lives are made of. Excited. Angry. Jealous. Happy. Emotions we experience are as complex as they are vast. Both children and grownups alike can join Bibi, a baby elephant, as she learns to navigate the key big feelings we experience through a little help from her zoo friends. Friendly characters and relatable experiences will leave your little reader with a better understanding of some of the mix of emotions we feel.
September 27: Bravery Grows Dr Melissa Ortego Giglio and Daisy Geddes, 4pm-4:30pm
Bravery Grows is the story of a child struggling with anxiety and worry. While confident at home, her bravery glow dims at school and in social situations. She is unable to share her words or ideas with anyone outside of her comfort zone, including her teachers and peers, leaving her feeling frustrated and unsure of what to do. With the support, love, and understanding of her parents, she learns strategies to overcome her anxiety and regain her confidence. Each small step of improvement she makes helps her confidence to grow and her bravery glow to shine brightly again.
This series of author-led events is set to be educational and inspirational in equal measure.
