Animal Adventure Tales

Students at May Moore and John Quincy Adams Elementary Schools kicked off Parents as Reading Partners (PARP) month with an animated performance by award-winning author, storyteller, educator and musician Michael Caduto. The program celebrated Native American culture through stories, song and dance in Flying Turtles and Talking Bears.

Students were introduced to a cast of humorous characters with unique personalities as they were immersed in the experience of traditional storytelling. Students sang along to the accompaniment of guitar and drums and danced to the rhythm of rattles. The vivid tales sparked students’ imaginations and gave them a new perspective on nature and its inhabitants.
