Story Tree by Orange Moon

Story Tree


Stories are told with children at the youngest ages and until the end of time. Nursery Rhymes are the beginning of our oral language experience and we share our world with excitement, song, puppets and props. Sitting under the story tree invites children of all ages to sit-a-spell and hear a yarn from Mother Nature. Mary Jo uses a tree prop to introduce stores from nature and to challenge the children to help write a tell-able tale.



Mary Jo will visit your school or library and share music, movement, finger plays and stories from the beginning of Mother Goose to modern times.


Children are divided into age groups such as Pre-K & K, 1,2,3 & 4,5. The presentations are interactive and address state literacy standards involving language, listening, music, movement, telling and retelling stories, and dramatic play.


Are designed for summer reading themes or program development as directed by the librarian.



Mary Jo will visit Pre-Schools, Child Care Centers, or any environment where children gather.
