The Velveteen Rabbit






The Velveteen Rabbit

December 2020

For all ages


Adapted by Michelle Hoppe-Long | From the story by Margery Williams
A child's love of his favorite toy literally brings this story to life.
A little boy awakens Christmas morning to discover a Velveteen Rabbit among his gifts. Adored at first, then cast to the toy box, the Rabbit is snubbed by the other toys for being old-fashioned. Over time, a friendship blossoms. The Velveteen Rabbit learns what it means to be truly loved by the Boy - and the smiles and tears that come from being "real". Adapted from the classic book, this poignant story has charmed generations of families and continues to be cherished by audiences today.

My Wonderful Birthday Suit






My Wonderful Birthday Suit

February 2021

For ages 4+


By Gloria Bond Clunie
A surprise birthday party gives three children something truly amazing to celebrate - their differences.
Rainbows, moonbeams and a bit of birthday magic make for a super-fun party! But friendships are questioned when judgements and comments about skin color slip out. By sharing experiences, the children learn important lessons about understanding and acceptance that pave the way to forgiveness. This spectacular story told with music, an awesome puppet named Bobo the bird and the wonder of a magical Thinking Tree will give everyone something to ponder. Each of us is a gift “wrapped” in our own unique way but it’s what’s on the inside that truly makes us special. This powerful conversation-starter proves that you’re never too young (or too old) to be kind.
Themes: Tolerating differences, acceptance, understanding and celebrating diversity
