“Cuddle Up With Caldecott”   

Cuddle Up With Caldecott is a 30 minute program for children in Grades K – 5, that brings to life the most treasured books through the art of storytelling. Nancy offers this performance during the school day or for a community-wide evening event for students and their families.  The evening program begins with storytelling, followed by an opportunity for parents and children to cuddle up and read together from a wide selection of Caldecott classics from your school library.cadecott

What People Are Saying:

“Nancy, thank you for a wonderful night.  Your storytelling was so very entertaining and I know it motivated the   students and parents.  One 6th grader whose kindergarten brother was at our Family Read Night, told me his brother talked about it all night, repeating the stories you told!“
