Mermaids Fast Asleep Story Hour and Puppet Party at Book and Puppet Co.

I had fantastic fun singing my lullaby picture book in Easton, PA!

There was a packed house for story hour at Book and Puppet Co., February 17, 2019. Kids got to color and create their own mermaid themed puppets and perform their own puppet show after getting a special sneak peek of “Mermaids Fast Asleep”.

It is pretty amazing to me when I watch the video – how wonderfully well-behaved the children are! I don’t want to say it’s entirely due to the calming effects of the Mermaid Lullaby, but I’m sure it didn’t hurt…
