Barb’s 50-minute “Stories with at Twist” programs are entertaining, interactive and full of wild and wonderful stories and songs from all over the world. As a talented singer and actress, Barb brings to her audiences an action-packed program guaranteed to entertain pre-school children through adults. Those who have seen her agree: “You’ll laugh out loud as you join in on the fun!”

Up and down the east coast, you can find Barb singing, laughing and telling stories in elementary schools and libraries. Her programs encourage kids to listen, think and feel, visualize characters, settings and plot, interpret new vocabulary words, see things from a new point of view and become totally immersed in the glorious experience of stories! And most of all, listening to silly stories and songs allows children to have fun with language and literacy!

“Your performance was wonderful and it was so fulfilling to see the delight on the children’s faces and their laughs – the staff, too! I heard some of the staff comment that it was the best assembly they had ever attended. Again, thank you for a great storytelling experience for all.”

“I cannot tell you how grateful we are that you came to visit in January! (Our school) loves you and we are still buzzing with your songs, stories, and laughter! At the PTA board meeting last night, the parents clapped when I brought up your name. We hope you will reserve a date for us next school year. You were terrific!”
