Snow Creek Elementary School presents When Hairy Met Tallie author and Franklin County native, Stacie Haynes Carroll for the Premiere of her new children’s book.
MEDIA ALERT – Raleigh, NC – Snow Creek Elementary is hosting a Premiere Signing Event with Snow Creek graduate Stacie Haynes Carroll, founder of Hairy’s Heart and author of the highly anticipated children’s book When Hairy Met Tallie.
Stacie’s first public signing of the 24-page book will be on Saturday, June 27th from 10 a.m. to noon. The school is located a393 Snow Creek Road, Penhook, Virginia.
Carroll’s delightful book is a story about the introduction of a life size skeleton to her 8-year old daughter, Tallie and the wisdom this unlikely source imparts about kindness, self-confidence and acceptance.
Christened “Hairy” because Tallie said “he doesn’t have any hair!” Hairy quickly becomes a member of the Carroll family and goes everywhere with them – bowling, to the farmer’s market, even on a cruise, giving them many opportunities to share Hairy’s message with curious onlookers.
Tallie’s transformation from a shy little girl who often feels left out to a jubilant, self-confident little girl at the end of the book demonstrates the power of a magical phrase Hairy repeats over and over, “Because we’re all the same on the inside.” That one simple phrase illustrates and encourages both children and adults to always be kind to yourself and to others because we are not as different as we sometimes believe.
Children will have the opportunity to meet Hairy and become his friend and are encouraged to invite their parents to attend. As Stacie says, “often it’s the adults who meet Hairy who are the most profoundly impacted.”
The author will be signing books that will be available for purchase.
