The Mysterious Floating Shovels!

What is the best way to travel to story time? Obviously, it is by riding on red rocket-scooters with my friends!

As always, the Bettendorf Public Library showed up in full force this morning!

There was even a birthday boy in the audience. I just wish I could remember how old he was.

One thing did concern me about the library. I wasn’t so sure about the creepy cabinet of floating shovels!

Much later, at the Olin Public Library, I shared with the audience [...]

Bats or Moustaches?

At 6:45 a.m. we departed for adventure in a brand new set of wheels!

As usual, this morning’s performance at the Bettendorf Public Library was packed with families who love a good story time!

Today, we celebrated story time with a trophy for our largest Bettendorf crowd to date. 491 people came out for the fun!

I wasn’t too surprised with the award. I’ve always known their library to go BATTY when we come to town.

Just how batty are they? They are so [...]

Only in America!

It was a pack of dragons and they nearly attacked the [...]

Pirate Infestation!

Well, maybe Dr. Tentacles can be a little grouchy sometimes. I think that is because he is kept behind glass.

I didn’t know this, but the Davenport Public Library has a pretty big pirate infestation.

You just never know when a pirate is going to try to sneak off with your box [...]

Every Castle Needs…

Every castle needs a few jesters.

Every castle needs a few princesses.

Every castle needs a few knights.

And every castle definitely needs a few farmers.

That’s where I was this morning: the castle known as the Davenport Public Library.

I also had a colorful afternoon at the Bettendorf Public Library.

Everything was going well until I accidentally knocked over that fish tank!

Story time and reading are both music to my ears.

It reminds me of my days back in the Wartburg College Wind Ensemble.
