I recently had the pleasure of presenting to Ms. Bevacqua’s kindergarten class at Blessed Trinity Catholic Elementary School (YCDSB). After the presentation the teacher mentioned that she has written two books about kindergarten and we met to discuss how she might proceed with getting her books into print. We decided to partner on the project and her books will be launched on Sat., July 15th, 2017 from 12pm – 2pm at the Vaughan Civic Centre Resource Library.
Open the Door to Kindergarten is a helpful guide which introduces parents and students to the wonderful world of kindergarten. This insightful book provides a peek into the fun-filled activity centres found in a typical Kindergarten classroom.
Dani’s Kindergarten Tour is a simple pattern text for young readers.
Light refreshments will be served at the book launch and the author/illustrator will be available to sign books. Also, the first thirty children will receive complimentary loot bags.
Brock the Crock and I had the opportunity to visit with the primary students at Springdale Public School (@Peel District School Board). Looking forward to visiting again later this week with Gigi the Giraffe.
Thank you to the students and staff of Rogers P.S. (@YRDSB) that welcomed Ruby & I to your school today.
Here’s a picture of my new sculpture. Her name is Gigi and she is based on the image of the giraffe from my book titled, “We Are Colourful Friends”.
THANK YOU to all my colourful friends at the Richmond Hill’s Community & Cultural department for your generous grant. Your support made it possible to bring Gigi to life.
There are 11 characters in my book and I have completed 7 sculptures. Once I complete the other 4 sculptures my goal is to have an exhibition at The Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts.
If booking a JK/SK interactive workshop at your school or library you can now choose to have Gigi the pink giraffe visit your class instead of Ruby the red flamingo.
Finally, thank you to everyone that helped me pick Gigi’s name. I think it really suits her.
