The Super Car!

Sometimes when we are generous in small, barely detectable ways it can change someone else's life forever. – Margaret Cho

It was been a busy September so far here at the Toymaker’s Workshop. I am working on the most exciting project ever! It is a series of books that will explain hospital procedures like shots and cat scans to children with cancer. More news on this in a few weeks when the website www.bowregarde.com is posted!

There are a few new toys this month...
There is a special secret Super Car here:
And a “Read-O-Meter” that you can find down at the bottom of my workshop page here:
It is a page that helps kids keep track of the books that they have read.

My friend, storyteller Dianne De Las Casas lost her home in the Katrina hurricane in New Orleans. You can read about her story here:

She sent me this email…
I am now looking for touring opportunities in other areas. I would appreciate it if you could pass my name and contact information along to schools and agencies that may be looking to hire children’s performers. My new contact information is:

Dianne de Las Casas
8722 Warrenford Drive
Houston, TX 77083
281-561-1977 ph

So if anyone knows of any schools that need an amazing storyteller then please pass her info along. I also recommend her very entertaining CDs for kids that have to take long car trips. We have her "Jambalaya - Stories with Louisiana Flavor" and especially enjoy “The Ghost of Jean Lafitte”…. Ooooh! Spooky!

Wishing you a week filled with good stories to tell!
