Maichack, Mary Jo "Books Are Celebrations" Music,
Performing Arts- Theater,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Inspiring young listeners to read, this show evolved into a 1999 NAPPA (National Parenting Publications) Gold Award winning audio recording. Both offer lively original songs celebrating the library and the power of books, multicultural stories — “Why Dog Chases Cat,” “The Unlucky Sailor"--with origami surprise story and kids using sea creature puppets (including a really big shark), and the bend-in-half-laughing instant story theater version of Munsch’s Paper Bag Princess, in costume. You will love and be amazed by the warm variety of this show and its many ways of getting kids happily to interact! Perfect for preschoolers through grade 3, but older kids love it, too.
