Teddy Bear of the Year Storytime with Vikki Vansickle
Join us for a very special Saturday storytime with Toronto author, Vikki Vansickle, to celebrate her new book, Teddy Bear of the Year (Tundra Books)! We’ll be having our own teddy bear picnic with light refreshments, so make sure your little ones bring their favourite teddy bear or stuffy!
The teddy bears’ picnic gets a modern twist in this warm and fuzzy picture book about a young teddy bear who learns that small acts of kindness can make a big difference.
Vikki VanSickle is the author of the acclaimed Clarissa books, including Words that Start with B, Love Is a Four-Letter Word and Days that End in Y. Vikki’s most recent middle grade novel, Summer Days, Starry Nights, has been called “summer reading at its best” and was a finalist for the Red Maple Award. After obtaining an MA in Children’s Literature from UBC, Vikki’s career began in bookselling at The Flying Dragon Bookshop, which earned her the 2011 CBA Young Bookseller of the Year award. Currently Vikki balances writing with her duties as the Marketing and Publicity Manager for Young Readers at Penguin Canada. Vikki lives with a cat named Barb who would prefer not to have to share the house with a sasquatch.
