Chad Otis - Storytime and Book Release - Boise
Rediscovered Books is pleased to host storytime with local Boise author Chad Otis for the release of The Bright Side. Chad will be at our Boise location reading his new book (and maybe a few others), there will be crafts and treats for this celebration. Come join us for a fun Saturday morning!
This endearing picture book about making the most of any situation is also a heartfelt and meaningful portrait of houselessness that's just right for young children.
Sometimes it's hard to stay positive: when you live in an old school bus instead of a normal house; when you have mostly just bread and ketchup to eat; and especially when you have to go to a new school where all the other kids already have friends. But the sweet and creative boy in this story discovers that he can do things he never thought possible, by using the skills his parents have taught him: imagining . . . and trying . . . and finding a way to look on the bright side.
This honest, accessible, and compassionate story is based on the author's own childhood. Its message about resourcefulness and courage will resonate with every reader.
Book is available for pre-order.
