Storytime with Poke the Hedgehog!

Storytime with the author, followed by discussion, song, dance, and a hands-on activity.

Susan Robinson

45 Minute Program

 

$129


The author will read aloud one of her picture books and share interesting facts about hedgehogs. Then we'll talk about being a good friend (When Poke Woke) or doing the right thing (Poke's Toque). Together we'll sing "Roll, Poke, Roll!" and do the Hokey Poke dance. Finally, we'll extend the story and enhance critical and/or creative thinking with some hands-on fun (I'll help you choose the perfect activity).

Her books help children navigate the world around them and imagine new possibilities, while her focus on language teaches vocabulary and instills a love of the sound of words. A former teacher, school librarian, and university writing instructor, Susan uses books to teach critical and creative thinking and guide children to write their own stories.
