Rachel Sumner Story Time

I've long wanted to feature Rachel Sumner,
one of my favorite children's entertainers.
My son loves her summer reading concerts 
at the library because we've been listening
to her music and seeing her perform for a
decade, and even though she always has
new material, he knows what to expect and
how to participate. And he does, with a huge
smile on his face. My younger son enjoys
her performances too and went with me to
her Cheekwood Storytime which featured Lois
Ehlert's Waiting for Wings and other Moth/
Butterfly books. Cheekwood Botanical 
Gardens is a lovely place for a story and
Rachel involves the kids with music and
Rachel and the children metamorphosing at Cheekwood.
If you live in/near Nashville, Rachel's next storytime
at Cheekwood is July 28, details below. 
If you don't, you can find out more about Rachel and buy
her cds (several include stories) at her website.
