HUG-A-BUG-A-BOO WITH MRS. KATE
Preschoolers LOVE Mrs. Kate! Blasting off with Give Me a Smile, Mrs. Kate engages her young audiences with her dynamic, interactive performing style. With puppetry, unusual instruments and riveting storytelling, Mrs. Kate enthralls preschoolers as they get involved in doing actions, listening to stories, and participating at the microphone with fun sound effects.
Your little ones will flap their wings (arms) like a hummingbird in Colibri. They'll be motivated to be CleanBugs instead of LitterBugs with Puppet Reggie the Raccoon's Coon in the Can. As Mrs. Kate tells the story of the Giant Worm, they'll gasp in wonder. Mrs. Kate follows up, motivating the children with I Will Be Kind. Your youngsters will be singing Hug-a-Bug-a-Boo in the classroom, spreading love and sunshine long after the performance is over.
Letters of Recommendation:
FROM BRANDON MONTESSORI SCHOOL IN VALRICO, FL
"Mrs. Kate’s presentations at our schools have been incredibly entertaining while at the same time educational and interesting. Children come away with an appreciation for the world around them (the interrelation of humans, animals and the environment.) Mrs. Kate’s audiences (young and old) can’t help but be engaged with her fun and interactive songs. Her unique stories span from Florida to distant countries capturing the diversity of many cultures. Her songs also teach about unique animals and reptiles holding the attention of every child as they eagerly await more fun facts. Not only is Mr. Kate’s performance superbly done, but it is professional and courteous. Teachers and parents are always thrilled to have her graciously remind children about their own actions and ways to be good citizens of this earth." Laurie March, Director
FROM PRIMROSE SCHOOL IN ST. JOHNS FOREST
Wonderful performance! The children enjoyed it very much; it was both fun and informative. I was impressed by the variety of topics covered by your material, especially those pertaining to the animals native to our great state of Florida. Protecting the habitats and animals of Florida is so important and, as you obviously know, it has to start with our children. Thank you again for sharing your music with us and for MOTIVATING us to help our environment!

"Your concert was THE BEST EVER!!!!!!!!!!! Even our more hard to please parents and teachers can't wait until you return. The kids were bubbling over in excitement, "Ms. Theresa, what was the name of that bird Mrs. Kate sang about?" It was the perfect concert!" Theresa Levy, Director
"Once again your concert at our school was delightful, and I wanted to thank you for the joy you brought to our children. The kindergarteners are still talking about the "Anhingas" and the 4 years olds are singing "Coon in the Can" and even the toddlers were swaying to the music as you sang. The children love how you involve so many people in the songs as you perform and I am glad that you incorporate real facts about Florida nature."

I got 4 of your CD's and I must say my 6 year old loves them. He has listened to them every day since you performed at his school. You had him do the rainstick for you and now that is his favorite song. Second would be Armadillo. Thank you for giving intelligent music that is fun.

FROM MACLAY SCHOOL IN TALLAHASSEE, FL
"Keeping 60 four year olds sitting, listening and involved for 45 minutes is not an easy task, but you were more than up to it. We are enjoying your CD. We sing Hug-a-Bug-a-Boo often. The children love it. I am so glad that you were able to perform for us."
Cynthia Poole, Preschool Director
FROM STEPPING STONES PRESCHOOL IN GAINESVILLE, FL
"Children singing songs and having so much fun doing it has to be one of the greatest blessings to a teacher. For many of us, song leading is often a difficult task. Thanks to you and your music that we were able to purchase, our little ones are able to keep right on singing! Your enthusiastic style of involving them in the process was a joy, not only to the children, but the teachers as well. Simply put, you made learning
fun, and that is what it's all about."
