Rock Solid!

A play on the theme title of “Libraries Rock” ROCK SOLID! explores the world under our feet with animated tales from Fossils to Soil Creatures.

Travel around the world with these captivating multi-cultural stories and songs. Celebrate age-old narratives, animal characters and home-spun wisdom all the while learning songs in different languages as one of New England’s favorite storytellers takes us from the heart of the Amazon rainforest to the villages of Africa on the wings of story, rhythm and song.

Here is what others have said about Diane’s Programs:

“My family was at your amazing performance of “Join In” yesterday. I have to tell you: It was awesome! It was so lively and full of joy. It’s amazing how you bring together many aspects of art and present them for kids so they use their imagination to “see” all the characters you’re talking, dancing and singing about. Personally, I was very happy with your folktales about the rainforests. I’m from Brazil where we have a rich heritage from Africa and we live in the US where my son was born. We were very pleased to hear from all those places that mean a lot to us. And, yes, we loved to hear “O Pião entrou na roda, ó pião! Roda pião, bambeia pião!”. I used to sing this song myself when I was kid. It was delightful. :~)” ~Marcia, Linden School, Malden, MA
