Savoy Bookshop & Cafe presents a special Savoy Story Hour this week featuring Nicole Cannella (The Ribbit Exhibit and Leaving a Mark) and Greg Lado (Try), with music and a book reading. This storytime is for all ages.
About The Ribbit Exhibit
This tale of one frog's triumphant leap of faith poignantly shares how it feels to be the target of bullying and teasing at school. We learn how those who are harassed feel isolated and afraid in a place where they should feel safe. When his teacher assigns a project that will allow the children to share their fears for the upcoming Parent's Day, one little frog takes a big chance and learns that bravery comes in all shapes and sizes.
TRY is an inspiring children's book with original song about not being discouraged to take a chance on anything you want to do. After all, any accomplishment in life starts with that first step of trying regardless of your fear of failure, not being any good, or caring about what others think. There are no limits if you just give it a go!
The song for TRY has an island reggae vibe and is super catchy! After one listen, just TRY and get it out of your head!
Try is meant to be an interactive book; not only in song, but in visuals. We encourage grown ups to ask their little reader to describe the conflict on each page on the left and how each character used their will to try to create the solution on the right. Our hope is that seeing the problem become a resolution will allow children to decipher their own means of problem solving. Now all you can do is try! Enjoy!
