Climate-Rock Puppet Party!

June 20, 3 pm.

This program will be in person at Spuyten Duyvil Library.

Award-winning NYC Kindie climate-rocker and puppeteer, Esther Crow (guitar), and her 9-yr- old son Vincent (mandolin & percussion) teach climate and sustainability lessons to kids through song, dance and chants! By weaving comedy and kindness into each session, Esther empowers kids with the knowledge and confidence to be leaders of social/climate justice actions, and to understand the importance of the natural world around them. Each of her puppets has unique personalities and lessons to share, like Sustainable Sammy, a sock puppet who is a champion for reusing and repurposing, and Bernie the Bee who teaches about how bees (and bats!) pollinate our fruits and vegetables. 

Presented by  Esther Crow
