Program description: Build the excitement for your summer readers with a lively participatory program of multicultural folk tales and songs! These are inspiring blueprints for A Better World. Stories include Slops! (a Welsh couple learn to be more considerate and become better neighbors), and Old Joe and the Carpenter (a spiteful farmer hires a carpenter to build a fence, and instead he builds a bridge). Songs include If I Had A Hammer and The Turning Of The World. Tim’s dramatic style of voice, movement, and facial expression brings stories to life, and his gift of encouraging participation makes for high-spirited and engaging programs. He’ll accompany songs and stories with guitar, mountain dulcimer, and conga drum. A program bibliography will be available so that books containing the stories can be on display, and Tim will recommend them in the program to celebrate and encourage reading. Tim Van Egmond has been delighting and captivating audiences all over the country for over 30 years. He's been selected for the New England States Touring Program, and the New Hampshire State Library's Kids, Books, and the Arts Project.
