Storytime with Erica Demarch

We have a special guest! Erica Demarch will be joining us for storytime with her book How Do You Balance Like That?

1/2 off all cafe beverages for parents 10- 11 am. Stories and cookies for the littles ones at 10:30 am.

About the Book: Are you ready for an adventure to explore balance? Join two girls at the zoo, with a cat as their guide, some animal friends and explore how they move and balance. You’ll learn how balance (which helps you walk, run, jump and play) gets you through the day! How does the seal balance a ball on his nose or the cheetah run so fast and still focus on a gazelle? Each animal you meet teaches important balance concepts and then leads you into playful movements as you practice using your vision, proprioception and vestibular system (don’t worry, the cheetah will explain that one)! This interactive picture book, written by a physical therapist who specializes in balance, is filled with fun facts and activities that are great for toddlers, preschoolers and early readers, and helps kids learn and practice balance in a simple and engaging way. Parents, grandparents and teachers will also love practicing the various skills. Read to learn more and have fun exploring balance.

About the author: Erica DeMarch, CEO and founder of Step and Connect was inspired to write a children’s book when her daughters wanted to skip the part of their gymnastics class that required walking on the high balance beam. As a physical therapist with extensive experience in neurological and vestibular/balance rehabilitation, she was able to provide them with tips to help calm their fears and the tools to improve their balance skills.  Erica is always looking for creative ways to improve motor learning and balance for people of all ages.  She invented Balance Matters®, a state-of-the-art device that incorporates sensory feedback to improve balance and gait.
