The Voiceless Child
Considering the Find Your Voice theme,
we share this short video that was inspired by our work in a California school district.
During her first four years of school, Sophie's teachers never heard her utter a single word in class. Then on the third day of our storytelling residency, Sophie picked up the Talking Stick, introduced herself and explained how her mother made tortillas. Her classmates instantly erupted in cheers and applause The faculty lunch room and even the local cafe was abuzz with the news. A young French film student heard the story and created this video- The Voiceless Child.
This testimonial speaks to what we aim for!
"Liz and Bob enthralled a packed room of preschoolers, school age kids, parents, and teachers and kept all ages entertained at once – an amazing feat. Their delightful combination of fun personalities, participatory folktales and foot stomping music culminated with the audience becoming the band! One of our all time favorite programs!” (Lincoln MA Public Library)
