Storyteller and educator Monica Peterson weaves tales of autumn and spring from around the world. Audience members will join her in a quest to help a group of animal friends bring a change of seasons to the world (after which students will build their own star clocks); outwitting a gigantic and ornery pumpkin (while making connections to the pumpkin life cycle and formation of the solar system); laughing at the antics of Anansi the Spider (in a myth about the origin of spiders’ tiny waists) and saving farm animals from a tricky fox!
