Visiting child author Reed Kotalik will be reading his book, Running with Reed: Be a Better Somebody, Sat. May 12th at 11am with a meet and greet until 12:30pm
Reed Kotalik, a Woodlands resident and young competitive runner with Cerebral
Palsy has teamed up with Tammi Keen of Civin Media Relations to share his story.
Reed may have Cerebral Palsy, but that won’t stop him from giving his all to being
the best athlete, brother, and friend he can be! Every day he strives to be a better
somebody by thinking of others and he invites readers to do the same!
Running with Reed: Be a Better Somebody , illustrated by Archangelo Crelencia,
tells the story of Reed, an eight-year- old boy with Cerebral Palsy who embraced the
sport of running soon after his fifth birthday. The story follows Reed’s journey to
become competitive on a national level in track and field. Along the way, he
embraces several charitable causes to help others. The book is based on the true
story of Reed’s path to live each day with the hope that he can be a better
somebody and help inspire others to do the same.
Retail price of the book is 12.95
But for this event Reed will donate 2.00 of every book sold onsite at the event to the Children’s Museum.
Retail price of the companion coloring book is 5.95. We love this activity and coloring book because it has a page that invited kids to make a list of what they can do to help others and a page where they can “dream big” like Reed.
For this event Reed will donate 1.00 of every coloring book sold onsite to the Children’s Museum. They will accept Visa, MasterCard, and AMEX.
