Education Program: "Musical Storytelling, Growing Up to Become President Bush: Character Counts!"

George Bush Presidential Library and Museum
Highlights from President Bush's childhood and youth will inspire students to consider how to grow up to be the best citizen possible. All of the stories and songs are geared to enhance the theme of character development. Joining together in music, movement and folktales "with a twist" will also help to meet several common core standards for grades K-3.

The Bryan College Station Library System sends us Family Literacy Librarian Bobbee Pennington, a former elementary school teacher. She will be sharing the story: "Growing Up To Become President Bush: Character Counts!" She will also share other stories and songs she has written including: "The Presidents Song" (character is the key), "Millie's Song" (reading motivation) "Billy Goats Gruff" (anti-bullying), "Little Red Hen" (promoting work ethics) and "Toads & Diamonds - Texas Style" (kind words and kind deeds).

For students in grades K-3.

Make free online distance learning reservations at (video-conference, live stream or recording).
