Special Event! Educators & Parents:
Beloved children’s author and illustrator Rosemary Wells (Kit & Kaboodle, Voyage to the Bunny Planet), whose career spans 30 years and 120+ books, has dedicated her career to researching the interplay between child development and literacy. She will appear at Bookshop to discuss reading as a learning process, how parents can nurture growth of their child’s mind and spirit through reading, and how parents and educators can foster creativity in children.
Booking up our kids: Reading as a learning process, bringing in some of her works to illustrate reading, playing, and healthy development
The most important 20 minutes of the day: How parents can nurture growth of their child's mind and spirit through reading in a quiet, restful place during their first years of life
- Fostering creativity: How parents of children interested in the arts can encourage productive habits that can be carried on as they learn and grow
In the spirit of Max and Ruby, Rosemary Wells launches a new preschool picture book series starring brother-and-sister twin cat duo Kit and Kaboodle, and the mischievous mouse Spinka! Kit and Kaboodle are twin Siamese cats. The brother and sister are very good kittens--they are always well behaved--but they are always getting into trouble. It's not the kittens who are making mischief. It's a red-capped mouse named Spinka! There are three short stories in this picture book: Sock Mischief, Baseball Mischief, Bath Time Mischief.
Rosemary Wells's career as an author and illustrator spans more than thirty years and 120 books, including Hand in Hand and Kit and Kaboodle. She has won numerous awards and has given readers such unforgettable characters as Max and Ruby, Noisy Nora, and Yoko. She lives in Greenwich, Connecticut.
