Byers, Kathy SONGS FOR OUR WORLD/ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION Music,
Nature- Environment,
Performing Arts- Puppetry
The Puppets lead the way to One Earth So Green and Round (Parents’Choice Award 2012) A fun, interactive concert for all ages engaging life-like wild animal puppets such as the raccoon, beaver, polar bear, iguana, chameleon, bumblebee, snake, frog and turtle. Ray Corona says Lydia and Kathy's songs are wonderfully creative, and teach children and remind adults about our precious environment and its diverse inhabitants such as: “In Alaska”, “I Am Snake”, “We Study Frogs”, “Think About the Ocean”, “Why Do Turtles Cross the Road?” and “Chameleon”. Really terrific, and their singing stands out above all! Their songs have become a creative “tool” to help Girl Scouts obtain a nature badge, music badge or environmental badge. A music CD and lyric sheets are be provided to the school prior to appearance.

Although a bestselling children's author, I also draw on my theater background and my artistic skills during presentations. Depending upon the needs of the venue, I can choose from these different palettes. A typical presentation involves a talk on how I went from being a reluctant reader to an author, a storytelling or dramatic reading from one of my books, and a cartooning lesson. I am passionate about encouraging kids to read, and have spoken at schools and libraries around the country.
