You won’t be sitting still for long as we leap, jump and sing. Who knows you might even get to see a fish fly… and raincoats are not needed.
“Since the last presentation in January, the children in my class have been wildly enthusiastic about requesting “WonderWeaver” stories from the media center. We have started our own WonderWeaver box of good telling stories and the children link what they heard to daily experiences, such as, ‘a promise is a promise’ or ‘it’s OK to be different, just like a square egg.’ I highly recommend the WonderWeavers to anyone wanting to enrich their character building programs and promote good literature at the same time.” — L.
