Kindercares in Norman

This morning I performed for two Kindercare groups in Norman. I got to test out my new "Burglar Babysitter" song with both groups. It's a long one, but it definitely held their attention! Daycare shows are fun and spontaneous. I hope I get to do more!



Metro Library System Tour

Last week was our amazing tour of the Metro Library System in OKC! I had eleven shows scheduled over five days. Lisa was able to come with me four of those days. Friday I was on my own while Lisa drove to Arkansas to pick up the daughter from band camp. Hence, no photos - sorry! All the shows went really well. I think you can see from the photos that we all had a blast...

"Working on the mystery..."

Two great shows at the Alva library yesterday! Lisa and I were sans child so Lisa snuck in these photos herself in between advancing the slides.

"Spring your sharpened claw..."

Bat Man - flap those wings!

Wilburton and McAlester

This week we were in Wilburton and McAlester. On Monday - Alva!

The Wilburton library proudly features many metalic prehistoric creatures!

The program room in Wilburton with its "Wild About Books" carpet!

"Spring your sharpened claws!"


"Freeze! - See if you can keep completely still..."

My first audience at McAlester included many very young ones, so did some "just for fun" songs I haven't performed yet this summer, including "Belly Like a Bongo," and "Silly Song."

"I'm gonna play my nose like a kazoo!"

"Electricity!"


"Roundy Round"




"Triceratops Bop"




Get this - while I was singing "The Cat Came Back," a stray yellow cat wandered into the library. Anita picked her up and brought her to the front of the room to show her off!


Talking with some fans from Stillwater after the show.


It's the reading bug!


The second show was even more fun than the first, only - the cat didn't come back. :(  This photo shows "Roundy Round" with partners!
