This program offers a three step approach for audience members to seek out literature that interests them as a catalyst to creating intrinsic motivation to read. The steps are: 1. Evaluate what things you are interested in as a person. 2. Research what resources are available to help you find literature that covers those interests. 3. Seek out the people that can help you acquire that material. (Librarians, parents, teachers, friends, etc.) This message is reinforced with award-winning original children's music and contemporary popular music.

You'll hear original songs that Marc has sung at peace rallies with Pete Seeger as well as some surprising sing-alongs from the sixties like Wooly Bully and the Beatles', Help. Marc composed the song, American Children, originally sung by Richie Havens. It was the title track to an album that he produced.
