Making books come alive!
The Decatur Public Library loves showing kids how READiculously fun reading books aloud and together can be! We’ve read and acted out a READiculous amount books to date.
Each year we launch a new show, and we have eight entirely different programs. So if you have booked us once, twice, or even thrice, you haven’t seen everything yet!
Favorite books from past shows include:
- Once Upon a Cool Motorcycle Dude by Kevin O’Malley
- Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss
- Narwhal and Jelly series by Ben Clanton
- Cake and Monkey books by Drew Daywalt
- Ballet Cat series by Bob Shea
- I Want To Be In A Scary Story by Sean Taylor
- I Yam a Donkey by Cece Bell (Ms. Susan's pick) & Cooking with Henry and Elliebelly by Carolyn Parkhurst (Ms. Alissa's pick)
- Boris and Morris by Bernard Wiseman
and every show includes one or more of Mo Willems' very popular Elephant & Piggie books.
Book a Show
READiculous brings the library to your school and makes books come alive. READiculous encourages kids to grab their grownup and visit the library, as well as get a library card of their own.
And here is something else READiculous! Our program is FREE to Decatur schools!
Performances Tailored to Grade Level
- Preschool - You might not know that we can also perform for preschool children. We have shortened our show to anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes using preschool favorites!
- Kindergarten-Sixth Grade - We present a 45-minute program geared toward K through 6th graders.
