Storytime with Kara Kootstra

Oct 5, 2020

Kara Kootstra, a children’s author, reads from her latest book, Bobby Orr and the Hand-Me-Down Skates – Bobby eats, sleeps and breathes hockey. So when his birthday is coming up, he only wants one thing: new skates. He's seen the exact pair he wants in the shop window: sparkling blades, shiny leather, clean new laces tied in perfect bows. But when Bobby opens his gift, he's dismayed to find hand-me-down skates: scuffed leather, nicked blades, floppy laces.
