Diane returns to the Abbott Learning Center in Wellesley, MA to perform her “Insect Comedy” for their preschool students. This is Diane’s tenth visit to the Abbott Learning Center.
Open up your imaginations for a fun-filled look at our six-legged friends! Diane’s teaching tale, Kate’s Acorn, introduces us to a fast-talking earthworm, pill bug, and centipede as we find out about the importance of soil creatures in the life cycle of plants. This creative tale is complemented by Diane’s true stories about her encounters with Monarch Butterflies. Then, in the Japanese folktale Princess Firefly, entertaining facts are served up along with plenty of silliness as the Princess ponders, “Who will be the bug that I will love?” Hilarious renditions of the hapless suitors: Mr. Mosquito, Mr. Gnat and Felonious Moth keep us laughing as we take a closer look at the wonderful world of insects. Bugs, bees n’ wiggly critters will never be the same again!
“From the Academy’s point of view, the storytelling could not have worked better as a public program. The stories you told, captivated and fascinated our audience. I was impressed that they would not let you leave the stage without an encore performance. Diane your storytelling is fantastic!” Linda Wolf, Public Programs Coordinator, The Academy of Natural Sciences, Philadelphia, PA
