Libraries


Librarians/Program Facilitators,

Are you ready to take your little patrons on a ‘book adventure’ with Fairy Poppilina’s highly interactive and comprehensive presentation of many well-known stories?  Fairy Poppilina sprinkles her story magic on familiar fairytales and children’s stories and .. bippidy boppidy boo .. it is a literary adventure she offers you!

Fairy Poppilina has a plethora of stories in her storytelling ouevre that she has been presenting for over a decade.  During this time, she has  discovered that children positively respond to stories containing ‘soul food’ – those that interweave an array of emotions, those that prompt awareness and empathy.  All these stories listed below appeal to BOTH boys and girls .. totally road tested in this regard!

It is with confidence (and pleasure) that FP offers these session options:

 

FAIRYTALES AND FRACTURED FAIRYTALES

A ‘resolved’ Goldilocks [where Goldilocks writes a letter of apology to the bears] and a cracking fairy headstand.  The performance of this traditional fairytale is then complemented by the fractured fairytale of ‘Goldi Socks and the Three Libearians’.

 

CONSEQUENCES:

Noah Dreary, by Aaron Blabey, and Sugarlump and the Unicorn by Julia Donaldson highlight the importance of understanding consequences.  These stories “get me in the ‘glitterheart’ every time I impart …”

 

CATCHING THE BAD GUYS AND A PRINCESS WHO CRIES

‘What The Ladybird Heard’ [by Julia Donaldson] and ‘Never Say No To A Princess’ are profound stories jam-packed with moralistic messages.

Are you ready to frolic on a farm and fly with a dragon [and learn how friendship is more important than material things and that working together can achieve great outcomes]?

 

THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING YOURSELF  … Be You!

Fairy Poppilina understands the importance of growth mindset books and presents Thelma The Unicorn by Aaron Blabey and Purplicious  by Elizabeth Kann, stories which convey the importance of being yourself, no matter what!

 

THE IMPORTANCE OF WORKING TOGETHER 

Two stories:  Farmer Duck by Martin Waddell and Amelia Ellicott’s Garden by Liliana Stafford portray the importance of achieving great outcomes when co operation and working together is undertaken.

 

Plus more .. Other stories Fairy Poppiilna has presented extemporaneously include:  Dogs Don’t Do Ballet by Anna Kemp [theme=be tenacious and your dream will come true],  How I Became A Pirate by Melinda Long [an imaginative narrative] A Squash And A Squeeze by Julia Donaldson [theme = perception, gratitude]   The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle [metamorphosis],   Oi Frog by Kes Gray [rhyming/poetry] The Pig’s Knickers by Jonathan Emmett [what people or pigs need ot make themselves feel good],  The Princess and the Presents by Caryl Hart [spoilt behaviour and almost discovering what matters most too late] .. and fairytales ..

The ‘Fairy Fine-print’:

Fairy Poppilina’s storytelling sessions are of an approximate 50 minute duration.

Movement, music and interaction are included – ie there will be some noise/sound/possibly movement [dancing and singing].  A separate room/area in your library may be wise!

Fairy Poppilina requires a table and a chair [‘fairy fankadoodles’]

Fairy Poppilina, a non-microphone using fairy, considers up to 40 fairy friends to be a good size!

Fairy Poppilina will arrive 30 minutes prior to start time for set up etc.

Fairy Poppilina offers segueing into a magical name procurement activity at the end of the storytelling component [fairy friends formulate their magical names from magical name charts, write it on their fairy certificate and pop it into a brown paper lunchbag with a pinch of fairydust, of course].

$360 per session.
