Reading opens up whole new worlds – even silly ones!
This program has Holly sharing different silly stories, including folk and fractured tales, silly storybook characters, and singing silly songs.
By combining various tales with interactive songs and balloon props, Holly engages children and adults alike. In addition, she will have volunteers join her in a fun gotcha! story and all kids will receive a balloon so they can create the main character from the final tale.
Holly’s performance is bright, fun and interactive! She brought to life so many wonderful stories from around the world which included inspirational life lessons about kindness. We cannot wait to have her come back for more stories and singing! – Hannah Marschall, Head Youth Services, Fox Lake Public Library (Let’s Go! program)
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, retired, Director, Johnsburg Public Library
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

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
