Author and Illustrator Storytime with Kallie George and Shanda McCloskey!

Read It Again Bookstore is excited to welcome picture book author Kallie George and local author/ illustrator and friend, Shanda McClosky.  Together they created, Bedtime Ballet! Join us for a very special author and illustrator storytime, January 17th at 1pm. Not only are we getting a storytime, but Shanda is going to show us how to draw a character from the book! This is going to be so much fun, you do not want to miss it.

Bedtime Ballet

Two satin slippers with bunny-ear toes and stripy pajamas are dreamy dance clothes . . .

When the sun sets, the ballet can begin! From the first notes of the crickets' outdoor orchestra to her grand finale indoors, one little girl glissés and jetés her way to bedtime. Rhyming verse, fun sound effects and elegant French words add delicious read-aloud flair to this delightful, dance-filled tale.

Kallie George

Kallie George is the author of the Magical Animal Adoption Agency series and the Heartwood Hotel series, among others. She works as an author and speaker in Vancouver, Canada, and she holds a master’s in children’s literature from the University of British Columbia. Every day she tries to dance and go for magical walks in the woods. You can find Kallie online at .
