Barbara G. Wong:
"Excellent! One student emphatically yelled ‘I love these stories!’ They all appeared engaged. You did a great job of monitoring the energy and focus of the audience. It fit perfectly with our curriculum. Suggestions for follow-up activities were extremely useful."

Description of program:
Firecracker Dragon: Tales of Old China
When the Chinese first came to California in 1848 to help build the railroads, they naturally brought their stories with them. These folk tales reflect important aspects of Chinese culture. Although hundreds—even thousands—of years old…they are still being told today!
Cuentos del Mundo – Stories of the World
Bilingual program of Latin American tales told in Spanish-English. Excellent for language immersion programs, ESL students, and Hispanic Heritage Month.
Instructional Materials Available: Pre- and Post-Visit Resource Sheets with optional writing, reading & classroom re-enactment exercises to further expand the learning potential of the program.
Other: Family Fun Night programs
