Episode Description

When Diane Ferlatte arrives on stage, you can’t help but be carried along with her charismatic style of telling that includes music, sign-language, movement, humor and song. She carries a stick and a treasure trove of stories, some with homespun wisdom, some with rhythm and rhyme, all with heart and life. Diane tells true-life personal & historical stories, as well as folktales, legends, myths, and fables. Besides passing on history & culture, Diane believes that storytelling helps to promote reading-readiness, visual imagery, imagination, and character/moral development. She has performed in virtually every state in the U.S. & has toured internationally many times. All of her recordings have won honors including awards from Parents’ Choice, American Library Association, National Parenting Publications, Storytelling World, iParenting Media, as well as a Grammy Nomination. Steven Zhou and Courtney Cheng host this storytelling hour.
