A zoo full of animals comes alive in this fast-paced performance that teaches children about sharing and friendship. Featuring such stories as “The Lion and the Mouse,” and “Why Turtle Has a Checkered Shell,” Aesop’s Bops has ample amounts of audience participation and offers positive lessons for social and psychological growth.
If you’re searching for a great day of character education programs for an elementary school, consider Mad Dog and Me (grades 38) for the older students and Aesop’s Bops (preK2) for the younger students. Mad Dog and Me is an entertaining mix of world tales and personal stories that addresses the universal experience of standing up for yourself in the face of adversity and bullying. Through fables, myths, and stories from his own life growing up in a rough neighborhood, award-winning storyteller and educator Dr. David Gonzalez offers insights and strategies for cultivating compassionate relationships and communities.
