How It Works
Looking for an entertaining and educational event that emphasizes the values of acceptance, patience and hard work?
I partner with local dance schools to do a wonderful story/dance event based on my picture book, Gwendolyn, the Graceful Pig, which is about two pigs with big dreams—Gwendolyn wants to dance and her best friend, Omar, wants to play football.
While I read the book, the dancers dance out the story. It takes about 25 minutes to read/dance the story. After the book reading/performance, we have a question and answer session (10 minutes). Kids (and teachers) love it!
Because budgets are tight, we provide the event to schools at no cost. We just ask that the school make the book available to any parents who might be interested in purchasing an autographed book for their child with a Pre-Event Book Order Form. The school does NOT have to purchase anything.
Kindergarten through 4th grade is the ideal audience, and even for the youngest kids, the event holds everyone’s attention.
