Storytime With Olivia A. Cole: Time to ROAR!
Join us on Tuesday, October 13th at 5:00 PM for Pre-Dinner Storytime as author Olivia A. Cole tunes in to our Crowdcast channel to share her picture book “Time to Roar!” about Sasha the Bear, who learns to use her powerful voice to stand up for what’s right. This event is free and recommended for ages 3 and up. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for registration details.
About the Book: Sasha the bear loves the meadow in her forest more than anything. But when great yellow beasts threaten to cut and burn the forest, Sasha and the other animals must find a way to stop them. “Don’t go roaring,” squirrel tells Sasha. The bird tries singing sweetly. The rabbit tries thumping to distract them. The deer tries running to lead them away. But none of these things stop the machines. Must they all run and hide? Sasha the bear knows they need something louder, something bigger, something more powerful. And Sasha knows her voice–her roar–is the most powerful tool she has.
Olivia A. Cole’s deceptively simple text celebrates the power of learning to raise your own strong voice to defend what you love. Because sometimes you must be a bear. Sometimes you must roar.
“An environmental tale that is sweet, cheerful, and empowering.” –Kirkus Reviews
