The month of November
This is an exciting month. Today, November is Nationa Picture Book Month. Why not
visit your local library and take out a new book. Read to your child ,parent, grandparent or just anyone who might want to listen to a story. There is no better way to share!
This is such a marvelou smonth to be greatful....thanks to Sarah Hale's 39 years of writing to presidents in the US....we finally got a special day to sit together with family and frineds and officially give thanks....thanks President Lincoln and Sarah Hale.
Why not pick up the book and read about them. Even pick up a book right now to make some wonderful decorations for the holiday.
I am greatful for the performance opportunities that I have this month to do the Thanksgiving holidays at a number of the Sunset Senior Centers. I love performing there and seeing the faces of those wonderful residents with a youthful twinkle in their eyes. Last month, at the Alzheimers facility in Wilmette, the residents were so inspired by my stories that after I left, they decided to remain in the room and make up stories. How very cool is that?
November 17th I will be riding the Polar Express in Downers Grove all day. I get to tell the story from the wonderful book "The Polar Express", along with many exciting holidays stories of my own.
I am very excited about performing Holiday stories at Kappy's Restaurant in Morton Grove. George Alpolganis is so family oriented that he thought he would treat his patrons with stories while they enjoy their dinner. I will be there on Thursdays starting with the Thursday after Christmas until the end of the season. Hope to see you if you are there...PS...I will be there as Mrs. Claus. HOHOHO.
December promises to be a very busy month as the Holidays come upon us. Some days I am double booked and so looking forward to the sharing.
Well, for the time beiong, let me say that I hope you get yourselves to the library, book store or even your own book shelf and read a book. Then try closing the book and tell the story to someone. Happy Thanksgiving and Happy storytelling!
