The PLAY-SHOP lived up to my expectations- it engaged all ages of the audience.
They were very responsive- even the parents seemed to enjoy participating in the activities.
The rapport between Ms. Rosolino and the audience was good and it fit into our summer reading
theme One World, Many Stories by presenting stories and songs relating to the buggy component
of the world and gave the audience a great chance to participate in the action.

Bugs, and Insects, and Arachnids, Oh My!
classic bug songs & stories re-imagined by Jean Prall Rosolino and Youth Stages
This exciting hybrid program is part touring play,
part interactive workshop. Especially designed for
families with children ages 3-9 years, this PLAY-SHOP
is a "lecture" by Dr. Katy Did (or Dr. Alder Fly)!
The good Doctor uses song and story in the attempt
to alleviate fears and enliven the lecture! Songs,
finger-plays, and stories may include:
The Itsy-Bitsy Spider, The Ants Go Marching,
Little Miss Muffet, I’m Bringing Home a
Baby Bumble Bee, and Eric Carle’s
The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
Forget bugs, beware of giggles!
