"Sometimes Just One Is Just Right" Special Storyhour with Gayle Byrne

Event date: 
Saturday, September 14, 2013 - 11:00am

Special guest storyteller Gayle Byrne proves that one doesn't have to be loneliest number with her winsome illustrated book Sometimes Just One is Just Right, a lighthearted story about an only child who learns to appreciate being “just one”. 

Gayle will entertain children with a reading (helped by a puppet friend) and coloring activities. 

Gayle Byrne can usually be found reading with little ones at Killingworth Library, where she has been the Children's Librarian for more than ten years. An award-winning educator, she previously taught English and Child Development. Byrne is an active member of Grandparents Raising Grandchildren and lives happily with her granddaughter, Jasmine, and Jazzy's Poppy in Killingworth.

Byrne's first book, Sometimes It's Grandmas and Grandpas Not Mommies and Daddies, won the AGHE 2012 Children's Book Award for portraying the aging population in a positive and unique light.
