Pack your bags, saddle up and get ready for an amazing adventure you’ll never forget. Come ride with Cowboy Steve and his friends as they take your students on a new reading and tumbleweed adventure. During the program students will discover a passport to reading, visiting places like China, Egypt, Italy, India and even the wild west of Dodge City, Kansas. Like all of his programs, this show includes costuming, puppets, magic, music, audience participation and a strong message about using library resources!
This time, Cowboy Steve and the students at your school will discover some of the secrets to a great story. In particular, they may learn about descriptive language, character development, plot twists and other writing tools.
To help students understand the elements of a good story, we will be looking at lots of books including award winners, books that have been made into movies, classic children’s books and folk tales from across this great land of ours. Filled with book talks, storytelling, and a neat moral at the end of the show, this program drives home the importance of reading good writing.
