I have started the 06 series of Audubon Storytime programs in the schools. My head is filled with animals that talk and play tricks.
Leaves no room for the gloom and doom of the news. That's a secondary benefit of being a storyteller.
Goes without saying that I thrive on telling the stories to larger groups of children. Beyond that I enjoy going to the schools. each one has a different flavor and you catch that within moments of walking in the front door by the sound systems and their music; the school DJ and announcer; or the quiet lack of that practice. I like the walls - where the students work if displayed.
This year I have decided to photograph some aspect of the school building and something from the walls.
At Garrett Park there was a wall of collages based on Eric Carle's, "The Hungry Caterpillar". This was my favorite.
Started the week at Wood-end. The February Storytime in the Audubon Snactuary Bookshop.
