“Let’s Go!”

Join Holly on a Journey of Cultures as she shares tales & songs of folly, hope & kindness.

There are Story Stops in Turkey, Cuba, Korea and an emphasis on Hawaii with surprises along the way!
In addition, the concluding segment uses balloons and all kids will receive a balloon so they can help Holly tell the final story.

An interactive storytelling & songs program

Stories are one of the most important ways we connect and communicate with each other. Stories are one of the most powerful springboards into imagination and into another’s experiences. Through story we change. We change our ideas, our minds, our cultures, our worlds.

Holly Nagel’s programs and balloon sculptures are absolutely amazing! She also does wonderfully creative storytelling programs using balloons that all the kids love. I can wholeheartedly recommend her and always look forward to her next visit to our library. – Maria Zawacki, Library Director, Johnsburg Public Library

Park districts, libraries & schools are a perfect fit for Holly’s programs.

Holly did a great job entertaining all of our 250 summer campers, at Libertyville Adler Day Camp. She kept them engaged and incorporated campers into her show, which they loved. She taught the older age groups how to make balloon animals and always have a smile on her face. We would welcome her back anytime as she is professional, kind, and the kids loved the show. ADC thanks you! – Julie Ludwig, Rec Mngr; Jennifer Gibori, Dir of Programs; and Mark Stave, Libertyville Rec & Sports, Adler Day Camp
