Kim's Programs for Kids

These programs for children combine stories, music, puppets and participation. Years of experience as a storyteller for the Austin Public Library have made Kim a favorite with young children. Older children enjoy both the silliness and seriousness the programs have to offer.

Intergenerational Programs

Children are exposed to wheel chairs and a generation they may have little opportunities to interact with. Parents and teachers gain meaning and insights beyond measure. These programs can be in nursing centers or in corporation with libraries, schools or child cares.
