Agostino, Christopher Hero Tales! from Christopher Agostino’s StoryFaces Multicultural- Other,
Performing Arts- Storytelling,
Visual Arts- Painting
Hero Tales! The Original Superhero Stories - featuring adventure tales and legends from around the world in an exciting performance for all ages. My favorite stories to tell to children are traditional hero tales — the original Superhero stories — especially those that feature young or small protagonists, like Li Chi Slays the Dragon, an ancient tale from China about a brave maiden that saves her village, or Punia and the King of the Sharks, about a boy who battles a shark. The reason Punia is so brave is because he is small — which is a wonderful encouragement to give to kids, that the small can be heroes, as in Aesop’s Fable The Lion and the Mouse. StoryFace shows are a surprising combination of storytelling and visual arts that fully engages the entire audience. A wide variety of tales are available to suit the ages of your audience, including samurai adventure tales for older kids. If I’ve been to your library before, I keep a record of what I’ve told, so I can always return with new stories for your audience. Go to agostinoarts.com to see the video: What Is A StoryFace?
