Okee Dokee Brothers Concert

As childhood friends growing up in Denver Colorado, Joe Mailander and Justin Lansing were always exploring the outdoors. Whether it was rafting down their neighborhood creek or discovering hiking trails through the Rocky Mountains, Joe and Justin were born adventurers.

Now, as the GRAMMY® Award winning Okee Dokee Brothers, they have put this passion for the outdoors at the heart of their Americana Folk music. The four-time Parents’ Choice Award winners have garnered praise from the likes of NPR’s All Things Considered and USA Today, and have been called “two of family music’s best songwriters.”

The Okee Dokee Brothers take center stage of the Outdoor Learning Center (OLC) at 12:30 p.m., May 20. Rain or shine

Storytime with Children's Author Nancy Carlson

Storytime with Children's Author Nancy Carlson

St. Therese School welcomes children's author, Nancy Carlson for a very special storytime. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy a reading, illustrations and book signing on the stage of the Outdoor Learning Center (OLC). 

Reading begins at 12 p.m.

Nancy Carlson is an accomplished children’s book author and illustrator who has published more than 60 books. She is one of the few people who knew even back in kindergarten what she wanted to do for a living: “Make pictures and tell stories!”

Nancy is a life-long Minnesotan. Born and raised in Edina, Minnesota, Nancy had a happy and fulfilling childhood surrounded by an outgoing family. Many of Nancy’s stories are taken from her own childhood experiences.

Recognition for her published work includes several Reading Rainbow selections, the Children’s Choice Award from the International Reading Association and Children’s Book Council, the Minnesota Children’s Museum Great Friends to Kids Award and several others.

Nancy believes that life should be fun for everyone, but especially for children. This optimistic message permeates her picture books and provides a positive counterpoint to much of what children are influenced by in today’s society. Her characters aren’t always perfect. They often have fears, anxieties, and disabilities. Through her books, kids learn to cope with different challenges. They can learn that they don’t have to be perfect to be a good person.
