The Adventures of Largo and Shelby

Saturday, March 30th, 2019, 11am

Join Gibson's Bookstore for a storytime event as Joanne Randall presents The Adventures of Largo and Shelby, a charming picturebook to teach empathy about being different from your friends.

Largo is feeling sad. He is a turtle and being slow can really be a pain! Today he just wants to keep playing with his friends but he can't because it will make him late for dinner. Why does he have to be a turtle? Largo's friend, Shelby, helps Largo see he is special because of who he is. With help from his friends, Largo begins to see he has a special turtle purpose. And so do you.
Are you slow? Or short? Or something different from your friends? Largo knows how you feel. It can be hard when you think you aren't like everyone else. But guess what? Everyone feels like that. That's right! We are all made very different. But each one of us has a special purpose. And the thing that makes you different is what makes you special. You need that special something to figure out that purpose.
How cool is that?
