Literacy is always a goal at my library events. Many of my songs are based on a book and/or have story connections. This year's program will find me with my “Little Old Lady in a Vinegar Bottle” puppet teaching about kindness and manners from an instructive fairy, in addition to some “community” style singing. It will be an interactive , engaging program from start to finish.
I hold an degree in Reading Education and spent over 30 years as a classroom teacher. Librarians have long known that music and literacy work well together for tremendous learning gains. Everybody should have good time while learning, singing, and having fun.
I am listed in the Michigan Arts and Humanities Touring Directory and as such you may be eligible for a grant to help with costs for your event.
