Storytelling at the Children's Museum of Houston

Would you like to see me onstage with a group of kids? Take a look at this video, filmed at the Children's Museum of Houston in 2013, I think. Telling the beginning of the story, The Runaway Wok by Compestine, you can see a little glimpse into one of my programs.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hc0Lkphyuxw

Storytelling at Morton Ranch Elementary School

I was able to tell stories at Morton Ranch Elementary School in Katy last week.
I had a great time being part of their literacy night. Everyone was so nice and I loved sharing my stories with the kids and their parents.
Jennie McClendon tweeted about me- "Amazing storytelling by for our little friends! So grateful for her!"

Storytelling in October

October is a good time to tell stories and I have the opportunity to tell stories to kids and parents in both Children's Museums in the Houston area.
Last week, October 15 and 18, I did a Flashlight Storytime at the Children's Museum of Houston. With good groups both times, I told family-friendly scary stories. It was so much fun! 
This Friday October 23 at 11am,  I will be telling stories at the Woodlands Children's Museum.  While a smaller museum, it is a great place for younger children to play, learn and explore. I can't wait to share my "scary" stories with them.
