Telling Tales: Use Your Head

Although a typical session may involve a trip around the world, the underlying message is that people are really all the same. A particular emphasis on geography, the importance of reading, anti-bullying, and African American History are effortlessly incorporated upon request.

Use Your Head- Call and response singing, audience participation, live percussion, as well as the underlying theme of conflict resolution characterize this version.
