Everyone Into the Act at the Library!
From call and response tales that bring out the more timid kids, to a foot stomping version of Mama Don't Allow, this perennial favorite show features our signature style of highly participatory storytelling. Watch and listen as your patrons young and older,
fly with the fairies, howl with coyotes and perform with the
Off the Bookshelf and Into the World Band.
"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)
Pass The Stories...Please!
A Celebration of the Art and Possibilities of Storytelling.
When we visit your library bring more than our stories and music.
Each and every show is a fresh opportunity to have fun and
to celebrate diversity and community.
That's not just a slogan with us.
It's the very WHY of our life and work.
Sharing stories is an ancient and still modern way of being together in a warm and convivial way. Pass The Stories... Please! includes traditional folk and fairy tales, lively musical accents, and snippets of personal and family stories.
All are meant to encourage your kids and families to enjoy and become part of the storytelling tradition by telling and sharing stories of their own! By the end of the program, kids will have learned "The Storytellers Secret" and have a story ready to share.
Available for SRP, Festivals, and Hispanic Heritage Month
With Creole roots that reach to Africa, Spain, and the Caribbean, Liz’s signature style of bilingual participatory storytelling is animated with foolish children, talking hummingbirds, not-so smart ogres, and wise old women.

Liz's unique approach to bilingual telling encourages speakers of every language to not only learn a little Spanish, but to celebrate their own native tongue!
