Music,

Taikoza presents a unique and exciting program using Japanese Taiko drums (that weigh up to 200lb drums) and bamboo flutes. The program will take you on an unforgettable journey through Japan. It will take students to different areas and through the seasons of Japan. Students will be experiencing a new culture in a fun and exciting way, they will get a chance to see and at times touch the ancestral drums. The taiko drum has the power to touch everyone with its thunderous sounds and vibrations. Taikoza hopes to open the students’ eyes to the richness of the Japanese culture and spark an interest. We hope that this will spark an interest in other world cultures. Taiko has been associated with many aspects of Japanese culture since ancient times. It is said that Taiko was used to drive away the plague and evil spirits. In the Shinto religion, it was used to call upon and entertain the gods, or kami, and in Japanese Buddhism, its sound was the manifestation of the voice of the Buddha.

Ichile-Mckenzie, Ongisa The Gigi Gumspoon Ubuntu Show! Music,
Performing Arts- Puppetry,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Gigi Gumspoon is a performance artist for young children. Her songs are catchy, upbeat, and progressive enough to appeal to grownups! Gigi promotes the African philosophy of “Ubuntu”, a sense of community and humanity. Her songs focus on social/emotional skills, such as sharing, listening to elders, and coping with disappointment. But she also sings about the alphabet, colors, and eating healthy foods. In her shows, Gigi fosters a love of literacy with the help of her puppet Dionte, Baba Anansi the spider, and her grumpy friend, King Meanie. She reads didactic tales from the magic griot book, and encourages the audience to have more “Ubuntu.” Fans of Gigi Gumspoon, called “Gumbabies”, will learn to not only love themselves, but each other. Once they hear and see The Gigi Gumspoon Show, kids of all ages are sure to become Gumbabies, too

Discover the Magic of Reading! can fill your library with thrilled children happily participating in the most amazing program they’ve ever seen! Children LOVE the magic, parents LOVE the positive messages, and Library directors LOVE the resulting increased book circulation!... The show combines amazing magic, lots of audience participation, age appropriate humor, storytelling with reading promotion, a magical game and typically a breathtaking musical routine with mesmerizing special effects! For slightly larger budgets, we can add spectacular illusion(s), such as, floating a child in the air, sawing somebody in half or making them magically appear to introduce the show. Children also go crazy for an incredible animated talking picture! This is an incredibly easy, fun way to hook kids into reading, and get them excited about your Summer Reading Club for example! Not just reading, but checking out & reading both fiction and non-fiction books. At the end of this exciting adventure I typically give the children a list of topics discussed and popular with youngsters, with their associated Dewey Decimal System Numbers! How many programs get kids to actively learn and use the Dewey Decimal System? Make your library glad!

Schotter, Roni You Too Can Be A Writer Literature- Creative Writing,
Literature- Authors,
Performing Arts- Literary Artists
Award-winning author of 28 books, including NOTHING EVER HAPPENS ON 90TH STREET, used by many teachers to model writing, THE BOY WHO LOVED WORDS, winner of the 2006 Parents' Choice Award, and MAMA, I'LL GIVE YOU THE WORLD, winner of Oppenheim Platinum Award. I speak to children as fellow writers and share my passion for the power and pleasure of words and story. I urge children to turn their ideas, events and feelings into stories by observing carefully, using their imagination, and asking, what if? I show my messy notebooks and drafts to emphasize the value and pleasure of rewriting. With fun exercises and writing tips based on my many books, I aim to convince children that writing--whether fiction or nonfiction--is both rewarding and easy.

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?

Performing Arts- Puppetry,

Imagine a magical balloon that knows when and how to touch down in the most exotic places right in the middle of a story, just at the most important moment. This is the invention of Professor Pennywhistle, whose curiosity and enthusiasm about exploring the world takes him - and us - to the most surprising places. It's a celebration of diversity - and more important - the common things that people share all around the globe. We'll visit the arid landscape of Africa, where the animals must remember the name of a tree that will drop its fruit only if they can shout it out loud; the Palace of the Emperor of China, who has lost his best friend - a nightingale - and doesn't know what to do; a little cottage in the woods of France, where an elderly woman learns the secret of a soup made from only a stone. And finally, we'll return to the good old U.S.A. and meet Pecos Bill, America's first cowboy, and help him lasso a wild tornado. We live in a big, wide, wonderful world, and Professor Pennywhistle is more than happy to be our tour guide.
