Sue Stauffacher Oct. 29 at the Birmingham Unitarian Church Annex
Meet children’s author Sue Stauffacher , Friday, October 29th from 7-9pm at the Birmingham Unitarian Church Annex (38651 Woodward Ave., Bloomfield Hills, MI 48304) to hear about her new children’s series, Animal Rescue Team. This new series (ages 7-10) details the exploits of 10-year-old Keisha Carter’s family as wildlife rehabilitators in Michigan. Readers will learn that it is important to treat wildlife appropriately and that each animal is different in terms of how one should interact with it.
Here’s a link to a great Horn Book review of the series: http://www.suestauffacher.com/blog/archives/37
