How in the world we got started:
‘Mrs. B’s Story Time…With a Twist’ is the result of years of writing and imagination. Since the time Mrs. B was given her first guitar at 11 she has been creating silly songs for family and friends. Mrs. B’s sister Jodi has been drawing her characters since they were kids. How appropriate that their childhood hobbies are now being used to touch the lives of so many wonderful children.
The minute Mrs. B. walks into a classroom/auditorium filled with bored 5th through 8th graders or high school students her talents touch their hearts and funny bones. Within minutes of beginning story time you can see these stressed out 10 to 18 year olds (going on 35) turn from uninterested to completely jazzed and tuned in. For 30 – 45 minutes, they are who they are meant to be… children. They soften, smile, try to sing the words, and are soon happy and involved.
Mrs. B is not a teacher or a child psychologist but a mom who has used this as a tool to bring fun to her own children and their classmates for 15 years. Mrs. B is doing what she has done since her children were small, only now, she is doing it for everyone else’s children too.
