Area author Sharon Czerwien will be reading excerpts and hosting activities based on her book Bumps Are Okay for Kids, featuring a monster truck theme
For Clark County Today
In the coming week, there are two family-friendly story times being offered at two different Fort Vancouver Regional Library (FVRL) locations. Area author Sharon Czerwien will be reading excerpts and hosting activities based on her book Bumps Are Okay for Kids, featuring a monster truck theme.
“Life is not always easy,” Czerwien’s website reads. “In fact, sometimes life is just plain bumpy and overwhelming. Life’s ‘bumps’ (trials) are okay, though!”
The structure of the book consists of 12 STEM-based monster truck facts, each with an accompanying Bible lesson. For each of the story times, children will also be able to participate in crafts and other activities, geared for ages preschool through second grade, although kids of all ages are welcome.
The first story time is at the Cascade Park Library (600 NE 136th Ave., Vancouver) Community Room on Sat., June 10, at 10 a.m.. The second is at the Three Creeks Community Library (800 NE Tenney Rd., Vancouver) on Mon., June 12, at 10 a.m.
“I totally respect that these faith-based story times are not for everyone,” Czerwien told Clark County Today. “My heart is so happy, though, that families who want to attend these have the opportunity to do so!”
The events are not sponsored by FVRL, and are not official library events.
Czerwien lives right here in Clark County and homeschools her two children. Her son’s love of monster trucks is what inspired the book. Her first book, Core: Biblical Principles for When Life Gets Bumpy, is geared towards adults and is part of her Bumps Are Okay writing and speaking ministry. Her blog, Grace Through the Bumps, is found at https://www.bumpsareokay.com/.
