I am a music teacher and love to watch how children react to hearing my stories and songs. During Covid-19 we are doing programs on YouTube and Zoom. I look forward to the day when we can meet at the libraries, and school assemblies for fun reading programs.

Thank you so much for all who have added my children’s stories to your home libraries.

Tea Time with Miss Carol

You’re at home with small children. What do you do? Set up a tea time with Miss Carol of course. Dress up, set the table, pour some tea. Gather all their favorite stuffed animals  and turn on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iFA_rrpJfFU&fbclid=IwAR2dMFgNlOx28e-2CcBRFqQMoFYtMxRWnrq0-hzEf_jEPACnD3ToPWob6csCarol Tea Time 2

Children love to dress up and have a grand event to attend. You can make this happen whenever you are ready.

Sometimes tea time with Miss Carol is a story and song time… about a different kind of tee time. Golf! Hear Rod Ragsdale’s children storybook adventures about Andrew on the golf course during Tea Time with Miss Carol.

Sing “Five Green and Speckled Frogs” and hear “The Adventures of Andrew on The Golf Course – book 2 -DANGER.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SFdQdbq4qVk&t=511s
