As people continue to stay at home due to COVID-19 safety precautions, we decided to do another story time. This week Jodi O’Neill from Ebenezer’s Oak Creek Center is reading the “Kissing Hand” by Audrey Penn.
Audry Penn started her first career as a ballerina dancing with the National Ballet, New York City Ballet, Stuttgart Ballet, and the Danny Diamond Dance Theatre. She also served as alignist and choreographer for the U.S Figure Skating Team in preparation for the Pan American Games (1973), and for the 1976 Olympic Gymnastics team. In 1980, she became too ill with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis (JRA) to continue dancing. Because she had done a lot of children’s theatre and children’s dance, and had always enjoyed children’s literature, she turned to writing children’s books for her creative outlet.
