Enter the world of fairy tales where magic is only a moment away, and lessons about how to live are expressed through vivid symbols. For younger children, Diane brings to life classic fairy tales like Snow White and Rose Red and Bee, Mouse, Harp and Bum-Clock, an unusual ‘Jack’ tale. When Jack returns home with dancing bugs instead of beans, the fun and magic really begin! For older students ask for the performance Storytelling of Ireland and Britain which explores the oral tradition through Arthurian legends and ancient Irish tales.
Explore Water Conservation, Recycling and Wildlife Protection Diane’s environmental stories cover a variety of topics and can be tailored for your school.
“Diane- Thank you for adding your magic to our Earth Day celebration. You were so amazing with your messages and your dramatic art. We had over 1100 happy visitors that day. Thank you for coming!”Bonnie Drexler, New England Wildflower Society
