Kathy Urban

1/20/2024
On this LaunchPad, Eddie and Cap'n Dave meet the journalist and children's author, Kathy Urban. Kathy writes, Hop Lola Hop is my first picture book and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I loved writing it! Many years ago, it was my dad who told me stories about the adventures of baby giraffe and her life in the African Savannah at bedtime. The little girl that I was back then absolutely loved listening to them, which by the way did not come from a book – my dad made them up. Storytelling in whatever form or shape it is performed, is a powerful tool to inspire children to use their imagination. Moreover it helps to instil a lifelong love of reading, writing and learning.
