Witches and Ghosts and Pumpkins, Oh My!
Fun seasonal storytime -- incorporating interactive storytelling and a nod to strong women/working mothers (who just happen to be witches!) and land preservation as well.
Book: In a Dark Dark Wood, an Old Tale with a New Twist – David A. Carter (Great “read-together” book with a “BOO” ending!)
Book: My Working Mom – Peter Glassman (It isn’t easy having a working mom – especially when your mom’s a witch!)
Interactive storytelling/puppets: Big Pumpkin – Erica Silverman (Halloween variant of the traditional “Great Big Enormous Turnip” tale – I do it as a musical chant – contact me if you want the tune)
Book: A Job for Wittilda – Caralyn & Mark Buehner (A witch with 47 cats to feed in search of gainful employment…)
Interactive storytelling/props: The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything – Linda Williams
Book: Pumpkins: A Story for a Field – Mary Lyn Ray (Modern environmental fable/fairytale about a man who saves a field from development by growing pumpkins and sending them around the world.)
