You’ve heard us tout the dynamic duo that is Rebekah Raye and Kimberly Ridley. These two teamed up to bring you the multi-award-winning book The Secret Pool, which will be followed in the fall by the equally enticing The Secret Bay. Your experience with these stories and the vast base of knowledge these science writers/illustrators possess does not have to be limited to the pages of a book. This team will travel to schools to conduct hands-on workshops and presentations that nurture a love and understanding of the natural world. Read on for more information and get them on your school calendar for the coming year!
“The way Kim and Rebekah integrate science, writing and art makes their program unique. The fact that an author and illustrator work together is a huge asset. Their teaching is clear, while allowing for each child’s creativity. They guide and encourage children with sensitivity and the children were focused and engaged. The feedback I received from children, parents and grandparents was 100 percent positive.” –Pat Horton, Youth Services Librarian, Blue Hill Library, Blue Hill Maine
