Presentation by Local Author
The Idaho Association for the Education of Young Children is hosting Patty Costello, author of Catalina and the King's Wall to give a presentation at Rediscovered Books.
Patty lives in Boise, Idaho with her husband, a zany awesome toddler, a dog named Pippa, and a dog named Spencer. She grew up in the Twin Cities and is a Minnesotan at heart (you betcha!). She has a BS in Psychology from the University of St Thomas and a PhD in Neuroscience from the University of Minnesota. She currently works in higher education. For fun, she likes to trail run, mountain bike, cross country ski, and hike. She is also a voracious volunteer for various local organizations.
The Idaho Association for the Education of Young Children envisions a world where all children thrive wherever they grow and learn: at home, in child care, in the classroom, or with their caretaker, teacher, early educator, or family. The early years are a time of remarkable brain growth in children and lay the foundation for subsequent learning and development. Idaho AEYC works to improve the quality of child care and raise awareness about the importance of early education.
