Revue Stage

1601 Johnston St, Vancouver

Get cozy during a morning of warm stories and bright ideas shared by three award-winning children’s authors. Kids will be absorbed by these engaging tales of family, friendship and self-determination in the face of challenges. Steve the horse is sure he’ll win this year’s Race-a-thon… until he finds out that Turtle, Duck and Snail are his teammates. He gains confidence—and important life lessons—along the race track in Kelly Collier’s Team Steve. Eli bravely brings bagels to his grandfather when their weekly tradition is interrupted by a nasty fall in Andrew Larsen’s The Bagel King. And a granddaughter asks her kokum about the importance of her Indigenous traditions in David A. Robertson’s Governor General’s Award–winning When We Were Alone.

Grades K–3.
