In the totally FUN department, about a month ago my lovely publicist at Zonderkidz alerted me that Love Is Kind, Little Ewe and Goodnight Manger had all made the Oklahoma Bestsellers list. Here’s proof:
Seizing the moment, I asked my publicist if one of the indie bookstores that tally this list might be interested in having me for a virtual story time. She kindly reached out to Best of Books in Edmond, OK to ask and the answer was…. YES!
The story time took place yesterday at 1pm central. Since I’m all about natural lighting and Little Owl is all about staying cool, we picked this lovely spot by our front corner window and close to an air conditioning vent as our storytelling spot.
What was extra special about this reading, besides the fabulous lighting =), was that after the reading I got to share some neat behind-the-scenes artifacts PLUS I read excerpts from two different translations. So if you want to hear me read a snippet in Spanish and French and learn how to say “Love is kind” and “Little Owl” in those languages, here’s your chance.
I’m sharing the story time below in the hopes that you and your littles might use it for your own story time this summer. See if you can get of the book ahead of time from your favorite store or your local library. And if your local library doesn’t have it, please recommend it for purchase.
After the storytime, extend the experience with one of these extension activities or pick your own. Have fun! And if you really want to bring joy to a certain Little Owl, post a picture of your project on your favorite social outlet and tag us! We LOVE seeing kid-created book-themed art. =) NOTE: If you prefer not to click this embedded link, you can also go directly to the Best Of Books Facebook page and search their videos for this story time.

Woo-Hoo-Hoo– 8) [That’s supposed to be an owl]
Little owl is adorable, like the book you wrote about him
Oh, thank you, Mirka! A church ministry director made the puppet for me!
Congrats on being on OK’s best list!
It was a fun surprise!
Congratulations on a great virtual storytime! I’m sure many children enjoyed the story as well as seeing how Love Is Kind came into being! We lived in Edmond for several years in the early 2000s. It’s a pretty and friendly city with a great library!
I’d love to visit Edmond one day. I’ve been to Oklahoma once for a wedding. When I make a return visit, I will definitely have to stop in at Best of Books!
