When I taught pre-k, I had a cassette with children's music entitled The World is a Rainbow. A couple months ago I was looking through the library's schedule of events for fall, and came across a program with the same title. This program was a storyteller who used instruments from all over the world to bring her stories to life. The program was this afternoon, so we had a very busy day. We left the archaeology fair with just enough time to drive to the library.
Our kids love to make up and write their own stories, so I knew even Sunshine would enjoy the storyteller. The instruments were interesting, too! An African drum, a didgeridoo from Australia, and a Native American flute.
After the storyteller had her turn playing instruments and sharing her imagination with us, the kids had a chance to play instruments with her. It was a great opportunity for the kids to not only play instruments we don't have at home, but take turns & share with the other kids.
What a great day!
