Thank you to the early birds in Osterville who joined me last Saturday morning!  The intimate group laughed and giggled their way through “Sarah’s Surprise” and loved meeting the alligator.  Thank you to the very wonderful Librarian who sent me these pictures so that everyone else could take a look. 

 Jay O’Callahan

Before I told you about a great storyteller named Bill Harley and his influence on me, but when I became a storyteller I kept hearing one name. Jay O’Callahan. A master storyteller, and you know it the very first time you hear him. A really sweet and humble guy that I have met a few times and even had the pleasure of working with him this past December at the festival of trees in Plymouth. If you want to check out his stuff, do so - here- and get sucked into the world of Jay O’Callahan. It’s an experience you won’t soon forget.  

 Wolf and me screaming Everyone My Hat 

The residents had a treat this morning when Crayon Campus joined us at the nursing home for a few stories and a lot of laughs!  These pictures were brilliantly taken by my mother in law, who was there to enjoy the stories with her mother, a resident at the home.  At the end of the show everyone, including all the seniors, shook Alligator’s hand.  It was a blast, and thank you to Brandon Woods for letting me come and tell my stories there.

I planned on doing alot more blogs about the shows that I do, but it has gotten so busy, especially the end of May.  After my birthday where I turned 31 I broke into a very busy week and now the first few weeks of June are even busier!  I promise to try to post more pictures and blog about the shows and I am sorry to those of you who have emailed me asking if I was going to post pictures of some past shows - Iwill try to do better.

Meanwhile - enjoy these pics of the Marshfield Kindergarten having a blast this past Monday! 

Looking Down

Title: Looking Down
Author: Steve Jenkins
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Company

Wordless picture books scare people. The crutch of the typed out words aren’t there, a lot of people aren’t sure of what to say - how to tell the story! Personally, I love wordless picture books because it gives the child a chance to tell the story to you.  Looking Down is a great story that simply gets a closer look, with every turn of the page, at this beautiful world of ours.  Check it out today!
