Mount Union College Students To Present "Storybook Extravaganza"
April 22, 2010
Dr. Michael Olin-Hitt's EH 210 Children's Literature class will present a "Storybook Extravaganza," on Saturday, November 22 at the Rodman Public Library from 2 - 3 p.m. The event is free and all are welcome.
The event will include dramatic readings with appearances by dynamic characters from children's literature. The opening presentation will include The Cat in the Hat, Junie B. Jones and Captain Underpants.
The project incorporates service learning into the College class work, and, according to Olin-Hitt, associate professor of English at the College, should be a lively, dramatic presentation.
"I want to get my students in a situation where they present children's literature to children, so that they can experience first-hand the magic children's literature has upon kindergarteners through third graders," said Olin-Hitt. "In addition, I want to share my students' enthusiasm for children's literature with the kids. Hopefully, it will encourage kids to explore the shelves of the library."
