Author/Illustrator Story Time: Keith Negley presents Tough Guys (Have Feelings Too)
Ninjas, wrestlers, and superheroes might seem like nothing can faze them, but just like all of us, they get upset, embarrassed and nervous; they all have feelings too! With Keith Negley’s bright, bold illustrations and fun read-aloud narrative, Tough Guys (Have Feelings Too) opens up a light-hearted but important discussion on emotions and how they affect us all. Using familiar characters and familiar feelings that children wouldn’t expect to see alongside each other, Negley has created a touching story book ideal for encouraging parents and children to talk about their emotions, instilling emotional intelligence from a young age. At today’s Story Time, Keith reads his book, then leads an interactive ninja feelings drawing demonstration: kids match up feelings with activities, and Keith draws the matchups (a sad ninja driving a car, etc). Join us for a great story time with tough guys and their feelings! Ages 3 to 8.
