Sing A Story - Read A Song! Literature- Other,
Music,
Nature- Environment
With programs specially designed for libraries, Nan incorporates songs that have been made into books (books that sing), songs made from books, songs based on folk tales and stories, and songs that celebrate reading. Within that framework she offers presentations that focus on several different themes such as reading (SING A STORY-READ A SONG!), folk music (MORE THAN A SONG!), history (SINGING OUR HISTORY), and nature and the environment (SONGS FOR A LIVABLE LAND). Using folk and acoustic music and a variety of songs and instruments, Nan offers presentations that are fun and informative, and encourages audience participation.
$201- $350
2015 SRP-Heroes in Folk Song (& a tribute to Pete Seeger) History,
Music,
Nature- Environment
This year Nan's programs will focus on the everyday heroes of our lives with songs written and/or sung by folk music icon Pete Seeger. Considered a hero by many for his tireless efforts to promote environmental conservation, civil rights, and peace and justice for all people, Pete often sang and told tales of other heroes. Great or small, real or imaginary, past or present, these heroes connect us to our own paths and potentials. Music, particularly folk music with its emphasis on lyrics and stories, can help enhance reading, writing and listening skills, and language development. Using a variety of songs and instruments, and her collection of Books That Sing, Nan's presentations are fun and informative and encourage audience participation as Pete always did in his concerts. Suitable for the 2015 Summer Reading Program, her programs can also be tailored to adults and all-age audiences.
$201- $350
