Join us for a special Storytime with Elaine Bamford, author of A Cup of Loving Kindness. This event will be free and open to the public. All ages welcome!
Sidney loves spending time with his Mom over a cup of tea. However, he isn’t quite ready to hear the message of kindness his mom is trying to teach him. Find out what happens that helps Sidney to learn about the generosity of others and how the importance of showing loving kindness warms his own heart. Following the story, Sidney’s Book Talk will help the reader think about acts of kindness, in their own lives, through guided questioning.
As a nurse, teacher, and caregiver, Ms. Bamford has learned what an impact the smallest gesture of kindness can make in the lives of others. For more than twenty years, she taught students the importance of acts of kindness. There were always fundraisers for people in need, letters to our soldiers, and friendships with children from nearby preschool programs. The author’s goal is to reinforce children’s natural gift of kindness, by writing stories that will appeal to the young mind and encouraging a lifelong commitment to family and community with a strong sense of caring and kindness.
