Bill Gordh returns to Sugar Hill with banjo in hand to offer another program of interactive folktales from around the world.

Feegbah, the Pumpkin. In this West African folktale, a little boy finds a pointy stick and starts poking everything. The big pumpkin doesn’t like it and starts chasing him!
Tomorrow Monkeys (Brazil). A folktale about monkeys who just keep playing, though each night they decide that the next day they will build a house. This is retold with gestures that the children can join in and thus help tell the tale.
Tree with a Door in It (Original). A Story/Game Song that gets the children moving
Raven Brings back the Sun (Innuit). An arctic tale of the trickster Raven on a quest to bring back the sun, moon and stars that were stolen by an evil wizard.
The Octopus (A Japanese Drawing Story). A drawing of a series of short songs become an Octopus.
Half a Blanket (Mexico) Parents learn from the compassion of their daughter about taking care of her grandfather.

    Designed to nurture the curiosity and creative spirit of three- to eight-year-old children, Sugar Hill Children's Museum of Art & Storytelling provides opportunities to grow as both author and audience, as children engage with the work of accomplished artists and storytellers, and create and share their own.
