California, here I come!


It’s been a busy season for Mother Goose on the Loose. Following two MGOL workshops in Virginia, two Mother Goose on the Loose trainings were presented at Port Discovery Children’s Museum in Baltimore. One was the traditional training workshop; the other was for seasoned facilitators who wanted a refresher with new material and time to discuss programs.  (An unconference of the same nature, via the Eastern Shore Regional Library System will be taking place in Maryland on October 20.) At the end of the week, there was a fun training in Pennsylvania for Youth Leaders around the state.

Tomorrow, I fly to San Francisco where I will be presenting a Mother Goose on the Loose training one afternoon and a Transforming Preschool Storytime the next afternoon. Then, off to the ALSC Institute in Oakland while I will be part of a panel with some wonderful friends and colleagues called “Inspired Collaboration: Early Childhood Partnerships”.

Meanwhile, my son, Alon is back in Baltimore and he is the new Mother Goose on the Loose Workshop Coordinator. Working with him has been a great experience so far, and I am sure it is going to continue to be fabulous.So, if you are interested in booking a training, please contact him via the contact page on this Website!
