Festival Fun!

I had a blast today at the first Larsen Park Storytelling Festival! It was great seeing the other storytellers perform. I have some new stories that I want to learn now!!! The audience was wonderful, too 🙂 I hope that I can participate in more events like this! (Have I used enough exclamation marks?!)

Stories told:
–“Book! Book! Book!” (This is a well-loved librarian anecdote about a chicken that comes into the library. One version, “The Well-Read Frog”, can be found in Margaret Read MacDonald’s Three Minute Tales.)
–“The Little Red Hen” (This is a traditional folktale, possibly of Russian-origin. I used a singing refrain from storyteller Heather Forest’s sound recording Sing Me a Story. I wore this crazy chicken hat.)
–“Chickens!” (I learned this “boo baby” story from storyteller Priscilla Howe’s cd, Chickens! and Other Stories for Young Children)
–“At Midnight” (Another story from Priscilla Howe’s cd, Chickens! and Other Stories for Young Children)
–“We’re Going on a Bear Hunt” (My telling is based on Michael Rosen’s picture book version.)
