Welcome to TLE’s Storytime with the featured story: IN MY HEART

Happiness, sadness, bravery, anger, shyness . . . our hearts can feel so many feelings! Some make us feel as light as a balloon, others as heavy as an elephant. In My Heart explores a full range of emotions, describing how they feel physically, inside, with language that is lyrical but also direct to empower readers to practice articulating and identifying their own emotions.

Liliana Tommasini is a local author and proud volunteer with The Learning Exchange, who writes children’s books that empower children to explore creatively and learn to ask for help when needed. We are happy to announce her book will soon be available in the Laval library. Liliana was on TLE’s Facebook Live (see video below) for a reading of her book and to share her Chocolate Chip Recipe! Liliana was TLE’s visiting author at Souvenir Elementary’s Storytime event as part of TLE’s Storytime project! Where a few lucky winners got a copy of Liliana’s Octavia Can Do It!

Octavia Can Do It!

OCTAVIA IS A SPUNKY LITTLE GIRL…

who loves to bake cookies with her Mama. Mixing flour, butter and eggs is one of her favourite things to do. Today, Octavia wants to do things differently. 

When Mama steps out of the kitchen, Octavia takes over with an “I can do it” attitude. But as flour and cocoa cover the walls, cabinets, and countertops, she starts to question herself. 

Will her cookies turn out as good as Mama’s cookies?

Octavia Can Do It! is the humorous story of a young girl as she discovers that even the most independent people need a little help sometimes.
