Play it Safe

“Thank you Shadow Box. We just saw your storytelling performance of Play It Safe. What a delight. Chicken Little, Ducky Lucky and Goosey Lucy songs about how to “play It safe” taught our young children safety rules in ways they will never forget. Is it possible for us to get a copy of the music. We bought the audio and the DVD and look forward to playing them for our kids. Keep up the good work.”

Little is Big

“Our students and teachers are still talking about your performance of Little Is Big. The performers were charming and the story’s message so important. What a wonderful way to teach kids that Little or Big bullies scare us all, that we need to find solutions and have “Big Ideas”, and the importance of friendship. We felt especially excited that the Author was actually at the performance and spoke to the kids. Thank her for being there and signing our books.”

The Growing Rock

“What a wonderful story The Growing Rock is. Such a rich Native American tale. I couldn’t think of a better way to teach kids about jealousy, sibling rivalry, and the belief that everything has a spirit, a life of its own, even the Rocks. To my surprise it also gave such a strong comment on individual and community support and never giving up. So many hidden lessons, so well told, packed into the story. Thank you so much. We look forward for your coming back with another storytelling. ”
