First Teacher events

Margaret Moody’s show Monkey King was captivating even for our youngest audience members. Her beautiful puppets were stars of the show and children enjoyed being able to see them up close at the end.  A fan favorite at our library!

Margaret and her puppets have come out for many First Teacher events in Roxbury. In this  day and age when so many of our kids are zoned out on screens, watching them become transfixed by such an old-school form of entertainment  – that actually calls on them to think creatively – is awe-inspiring. From young babies to teenagers (really!) our families were entranced.
