Torgan, Keith Little Kids Little Songs Life Skills- Other,
Music,
Performing Arts- Theater
Little Kids Little Songs is a fabulous introduction to live music, comedy and theatre for children ages two through eight and practically guarantees a wonderful time. While it's true that Little Kids Little Songs has funny and extremely interactive songs and stories from beginning to end the best thing about it is how it addresses the fear of participation and very gently gets the most timid children playing, laughing and singing before the show is even half way through. Soft, sweet, playful and funny - the original music and storytelling of Keith Torgan and the virtuosity of flutist Barbara Siesel will tickle not only the newest and youngest of audience members but anyone within earshot! Ideal for ages 2-8

Boertzel, Brooke The Storyteller's Candle Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling,
Performing Arts- Puppetry
In 1929, a warm and dynamic woman named Pura Belpré became the first Latina librarian in New York City. At a time when non-English speakers didn’t always feel welcome in the library, Pura helped many immigrants to feel at home there, and inspired a love of reading in generations of young people. In The Storyteller’s Candle, a skilled bilingual storyteller plays Pura, greeting audiences in their own school or public library, and showing them the wonders that can take place there. Through a blend of storytelling, music and puppetry, young audiences will learn about Puerto Rican folklore and the library’s important role in the community. Kids sing along and become puppeteers as Pura’s stories unfold. Based on the bilingual book, The Storyteller’s Candle By Lucia González with illustrations by Lulu Delacre.
