A Child's Imagination Should Be Society's Inspiration~ Quote by Shawn Middleton

With his unique style of storytelling he brings stories to life with finger puppets, sound effects, voice dramatization, pauses, rhythm, sign language, mime and hip hop dance. Children, parents, teachers, librarians, and community members will be educated, entertained and engaged. Audiences don't just listen. They sing, clap, dance, chant and roar with laughter.
With experience in early childhood education, hip-hop dance, sign language and mime, he combines a dramatic flair with great passion to create a unique style of storytelling. As a professional storyteller for 14 years, he has brought his genius for spinning yarns to communities from New England to California, with the goal of fostering a deep appreciation for storytelling, reading and writing.

Wild Heroes
Spiderman! Batman! Aquaman! Just like many famous superheroes have animal powers, every animal has the power to be a superhero. In our newest children's program, "Wild Heroes" children get the opportunity to meet several of our animal friends and learn about their special abilities that make them a hero in their own way. We hope that children will leave the show understanding that they can be a hero in their own way too.
