Free Event — Children’s Story Hour and Sing Along – The Big Stew by Kimberly Branch

With so many chemically-ridden and genetically modified food choices, it can be difficult to teach our children how to be healthy decision makers outside of the home.

Join us for a magical story hour and sing along with local author Kimberly Branch. The Big Stew is the tale of four vegetables brought to life on a quest to stay organic. While on their journey, they learn a thing or two about taking responsibility for our environment, and the importance of healthy eating.

Thrive’s own farm director, Farmer Joe Lustig will be on hand to lead families on a garden tour and a vegetable harvest. (Weather permitting)

We will raffle off a signed copy of the Big Stew. Books will be available for sale. We hope you’ll join us for this and other surprises too!

Sunday, October 9th

About Kimberly Branch

unknownAs an actor and parenting teacher, Kimberly Branch says, “My dream has always been to combine my love of theater with my love of children’s books and original stories. I can still hear the voices of pre-school aged children when I write stories and songs. I write for what they care about, need to know about, and what amuses them. Usually anthropomorphizing is key. I still remember how a child feels. I wrote my first story about an orange poppy flower, when I was seven, and have it to this day.”

She is currently focused on her children’s books where she using her expertise as an instructor on separation, ‘teamwork and tolerance’ and healthy eating.

Three of her books, Happy Flower and A Weeping Willow, A Dolphin Up a Tree and The Big Stew have been produced Off-Broadway, in New York City, New Jersey, Texas, Detroit and Australia with stellar reviews from The New York Times and New York Magazine. She has completed 9 children’s picture books.
