AHOY, MATES! Librarians, Principals, PTOs,
& Directors of Preschools-Elementary

Schedule Captain Book and Kitty the Dog for storytelling literacy programs in preschools, elementary schools, and public libraries. Sessions include stories with audience participation, puppetry , songs, and humor to educate, enable, and enrich. These programs epitomize the quote of the late puppeteer, Shari Lewis's father, What is learned with pleasure is learned full measure.

Staff Development - Early Childhood & Kinder Educators

Expect a dynamic, interactive, curriculum based presentation that includes step-by-step lessons, recommended books, songs, puppets, and activities to educate, enrich, and entertain your staff. My book, Library Lessons for Little Ones, is based upon this model. I have continued to create new lessons that are not included in the book. All lessons include teaching objectives.
