Birds of a Feather: a program about birds, with songs and picture books, for young people of all ages

Posted on: April 15, 2018

BIRDS OF A FEATHER OWL 2BIRDS OF A FEATHER OWL 1

I’m so looking forward to collaborating with a wonderful storyteller, Miss Marcia, who also happens to be one of the librarians at Reston Regional Library in Reston, VA.

With some encouragement from Miss Dorota, the library’s Youth Services Manager, we decided that we should do a program together.  When we started talking about what we might do, it quickly became obvious that we both love the subject of birds and that we both have a deep repertoire of bird related repertoire.  Given this, and our similar artistic sensibilities, BIRDS OF A FEATHER is born.

**********************
The illustrated songs and picture books we will use in the program are listed blow in alphabetical order.  The titles in blue below posses a link which will take you to a post about that song or picture book.  Posts contain lots of information about the books and songs, including printable music, sound players, and reports about authors, composers, and song or story origin. The picture books are linked to posts in which Storyteller/Librarian Marcia Wines shares her thoughts and ideas about the book.
