What better way to make the librarian say “Shh” than to play drums — in a library?! This interactive program features 35 minutes of percussive stories, a question/answer session, information about instruments, audience participation, and a percussion petting zoo. The petting zoo allows children to experience the instruments they hear, make some noise, get some wiggles out, make some noise, compose a song, and make some more noise!

Percussive Storytelling is an ideal choice for summer reading programs, whether the national Collaborative Summer Library Program or iREAD. In fact, Percussive Storytelling has been featured at over 100 different libraries throughout the United States. In addition, this program is a great choice for Family Reading Night at the library as the program is designed to be educational and entertaining not just for children, but also for parents and other adults as well. 

A library program is typically designed for smaller audiences, and is also a great option for community centers, theatre groups, preschool classrooms, playgroups, Boys and Girls Clubs, after-school programs, and more!
