Our love of reading always starts with the imagination, and storytelling is the best to ignite  it.  With the kids  getting ready for school, there are some wonderful  reading ready events.

August 15–Oak Park
FIREBIRD — a Story Experience
Megan Wells with Fiddler Jeff Teppema

Wednesday Evening at 8 PM

A family tale of a young prince and a magical bird. Add trolls, giants, a golden horse, a princess and wicked Loki. Through the use of storytelling, music and masks, Wells brings the Austin Gardens stage to life with an epic tale of loss, loyalty, wisdom and wonder.

But, my idea of a  true double header is storytelling at the Brown Cow Ice Cream Parlor.  Ice cream and stories, what could  be better in August.  Starting august 21st.
