2013 SUMMER READING!

Storyteller Cheryl Duffin's new show...

IS IN REHEARSAL FOR SUMMER 2013!
It's not too late to book a summer show for your library or day care.

What's exciting about this particular show is that it is designed specifically for pre-schoolers up to early readers (toddler - 3rd) and is based on the alphabet.  Alphabet Annie will visit with the kids and share, not only the alphabet and the exciting things it leads to (like stories & reading!), but also sing songs on her favorite letters, like Big Brown Bear, Purple Pig & the Giggle song!  Filled with stories, poems and sing-a-long songs, Alphabet Annie will have a great time sharing the joy of reading with the kids this summer!

Also - still available is Red Riding Rude for pre-k through 5th grades.  Manners Matter!

I can be reached at cherduffin[@] sbcglobal [dot] com

Fall Performances - Book Now!

Red finds a Wolf at the Library!
But, that's not all she finds...

RED RIDING READS had a super run during the 2012 Summer Reading Tour and the Texas Librarians, as well as the kids and parents, loved the show!

So, I'm offering it to Elementary Schools for the Fall!  Book now, it'll fill up fast!

See show description below:


RED RIDING READS

(Get a Clue – At the Library!)

(PreK – 5th Grades)

When Red arrives at Granny’s house for afternoon tea, she finds that Granny’s tea kettle has vanished!

With only a brief note for a clue, Red heads off to the local Enchanted Forest Library where she must depend upon books for clues to the missing tea kettle.  With the help of the librarian – the former Big Bad Wolf – and several books leading her on a clue-chasing, scavenger-type hunt, Red follows clues in the books that will, hopefully, lead her to the Granny's tea kettle.

Will books help Red on her hunt for clues? Will Red find the tea kettle in time for tea? Will the Big Bad Wolf help Red, or is he only there to eat her?

An interactive, fast-paced, delightful tale sure to inspire the adventure of reading!

Red Riding Rude

 (Manners Matter!)

(PreK – 5th Grades)

Before she was called Red Riding Hood, she was known in her village as RED RIDING RUDE!

Red tells the amusing and thrilling ‘tale before the tale’! There was a time when her bad manners and knack for being RUDE made one Wolf mad enough to gobble her down!

Red Riding Rude will edify, entertain and enlighten on the importance of having good manners.

Interactive storytelling with a fun discussion on manners following the show.
