Susana and Timmy offer a program focused on the links between folk music and literature.  It is astounding how many folk songs have counterparts which can be found in the library.  Timmy has compiled an extensive bibliography which includes books appropriate at every age level found in many school resource centers. Before the program, Timmy will contact the media specialist to design a specific repertoire of songs and stories which have links to specific books in that school's own library.
Students who participate in this presentation will leave with an excitement for reading that they have never felt before. This will be a program designed to draw out the richness of American folk music with the specific goal of drawing students in to the library.
