Children’s book author visits Bookworm of Edwards Friday
September 13, 2012
Super heroes in training is the theme for Friday night’s story time event at The Bookworm. Families with kids ages 4 to 8 will enjoy a visit from well-known children’s author Carmela LaVigna Coyle as she reads “Do Super Heroes Have Teddy Bears?”
Follow along as two ragtag, everyday super heroes don capes to play in the mud, save their stuffed animals from certain peril, conquer the vegetables at dinner and overcome darkness at night.
After five successful books in the “Princesses” series, LaVigna Coyle now turns her attention to an all new childhood fantasy in this story about imagination and play. Every little boy and girl has a super hero somewhere inside just waiting to come out. Tie on your cape (blankies recommended) and join the adventure.
LaVigna Coyle’s son Nick, with his fearless plush shark, Swimmy, was always creating something adventurous out of cardboard.
She recalls, “And off we’d go, saving the world inside Nick’s ‘hi-tech’ spaceships and submarines.”
She lives in Denver. Visit her website at http://www.carmelacoyle.com. Mike Gordon’s award-winning illustrations span fiction, non-fiction, entertainment, and educational books worldwide. He lives in Santa Barbara, Calif.
Kids are encouraged to bring a teddy bear or favorite stuffed toy for the cape building activity. Evening story time events at the Bookworm include book readings, activity and snack.
