LoiS creates programs for the multi-state summer reading program theme. Last year she and Priscilla Gorilla cheered reading, and will again, Cheering You On to Build a Better World with Stories from Many Lands. Find some Cheers at her blog, Storytelling+Research=LoiS using the topic tag: Summer Reading..
This is always a great program for reading and fits both schools and summer reading.
When not creating a new program, she loves going back to an earlier one of water related stories in a Round the World Storytelling Cruise which has entertained a wide range of audiences from Jackson Storyfest to families at the Detroit Institute of Arts, and also in libraries and school assemblies.
Both programs support the 2017 “Build a Better World” theme, as does a non- puppet program, I Get By With Help From My Friends!
LoiS's puppet sidekicks let an audience join in more intimate fun than is possible in a large assembly program. Buzz, her puppy puppet brings a bit of humor and audience participation dressed as a lifeguard from the Storytelling Cruise Around the World program and doing what else?
