Inspiring young minds...that's what Darcy Polny, Groundwater Partner set out to do in a new challenge. Butter Bean Books was born.
Recently Darcy visited C.W. Sears Elementary School in Tofield, Alberta to promote his latest title, "Stay Away From the Barn". To a captive audience of children and teachers, he demonstrated the style of painting used in the book. With special touches from five excited student volunteers, the painting was completed, signed and donated to the school. Then Darcy read the book, answered children's questions and took their pictures to transform them into bumble bees, a character in the story.
Darcy loves to connect with and inspire young children. It's his way of paying it forward and enriching his own life experience. "There is nothing like seeing that look of excitement and discovery in a child's eyes. It is truly inspiring."
"Thank you so much for spending the morning with us and sharing your gifts and talents. The kids thoroughly enjoyed your presentation." C.W. Sears Librarian
