Pop in for a storytime with Kerry Bober and her powerful poofas! In Kerry’s book, POOFAS: POPPING IN TO LEND A HAND, Poofas are positive-thinking creatures with special powers like friendliness, determination, and confidence, who help kids to learn coping skills and realize the power they have within themselves. At the event, Kerry will read her inspirational picture book and do a craft with attendees.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Poofas are positive-thinking thought bubble creatures that help kids handle stress and develop healthy coping skills. By sharing their “Poofa Powers,” the creatures aid children in understanding that these powers already exist inside of them.
Among the colorful creations featured in the book “Poofas: Popping in to Lend a Hand!” are the pink-colored “Lighthearted Lulu,” who teaches about friendliness; light-blue “Soothing Sue,” who carries a teddy bear and educates on comfort; purple “Cyclops Cyd,” who spins a basketball while educating about determination; and the polka-dotted “Spotty Dottie,” a cheerleader who helps with confidence. All in all, the 11 Poofas teach about cheerfulness, friendliness, comfort, determination, adventurousness, creativity, confidence, bright ideas, bravery, thankfulness, and courage.
