Stories for Toddlers through Beginning Readers


The Two Old Crows bring stories to life with puppets, movement and music.  Our focus is growing lifelong readers, so stories are developmentally appropriate and just plain fun. Choose Old MacDonald's Farm Friends, Tales with Tails, Fishy Foolishness, Forest Frenzy or Don't Bug Me, Bugs! All based on Every Child Ready to Read® guidelines with plenty of opportunities for talking, singing, reading, writing and playing.

Fee: $200 for the first show. $50 each for additional same day/same location shows, up to four per day. Two Old Crows' interactive style is best suited to small groups. Please limit the audience to 40 children per performance so everyone will be able to see and participate.

Want to add another dimension?  The program of your choice from above plus an art activity that will encourage your students to become readers and storytellers  themselves. This hands-on activity is simple enough for even the youngest children to be successful.

Fee: An additional $40 per session.  All materials provided.

Bringing Families to School

Move Your Feet to the Beat! Make music and movement an integral part of your curriculum. Come ready to sing, dance, create rhythm instruments, and go back to the classroom ready to boogie!
