Stories that Rock!  Summer Reading 2018
Tales and Tunes for every age

This summer, libraries will rock with Mark Binder's awesome programs.

Mark will hold young and old captivated with amazing adventures and silly songs that will build harmony and the joy of reading and hearing stories.

Perfect for any library encouraging youngsters to READ!

First, Mark gets their attention with a traditional story like Stone Soup at Valley Forge, Goldilocks, The Three Pigs or Cinderella Spinderella. (For older crowds it's often an original story called "The TV Deprogrammer!")

Then the stories spin off into fun, funny and funky tales ranging from "The Boy with Really Really Really Bad Manners" to "The Short Tale of Erika P. Spunk."

The winner of a 2016 Parents' Choice Gold Award for audio storytelling, Mark is an author who really knows how to tell the right story for any and every demographic. 

He's even got songs  like “Read a little every day” and "Acres of Clams."

Mark catches the imagination, promotes reading and tickles the fancy. Hearing his classic and original spins on traditional stories and his wild tall tales, your patrons—children and parents alike—will be entranced.

Summer reading for the fun of it

"Mark is so easy to work with! He always asks for information on what type of audience we expect, how many people there might be, etc., and then he tailors his program accordingly. BUT, best of all, if the audience numbers or ages that arrive are not what was expected, Mark easily adjusts his program to the group."
